This past weekend, Jordan Brand got busy in the Big Apple for Fashion Week. Teaming up for another collaboration, Public School NY (AKA PSNY) and the Jumpman decided to break the internet with exclusive sneakers and a dope collection capsule.
Jordan x PSNY hit the runway and gave access to the fans for a full fashion experience in NY's Chinatown with the ability to shop the pieces afterward. Partnering with Jordan Brand for the past few years has proven to be a match made in heaven for sneaker lovers and all around hypebeasts. PSNY designers, Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow have deep roots tying their love for sneaker culture to fashion.
Along with the Jordan 15 silhouette, the collection drops 11 versatile pieces that people went crazy over ranging from $60-225$ USD. The pieces consisted of shirts, windbreaker jackets, hoodies, and pants in a variety of natural tones like olive. Check out more snaps of the collection below and see what's left at PSNY online.
Even though the Jordan 15 isn't high on my favorite J-list, what immediately caught my attention was the knee-high boot. YES, we said JORDAN KNEE-HIGH BOOT. The boot is constructed with black tumbled leather, adjustable laces, and an elevated sole. The sneaker boot takes inspiration from the Jordan 15. I caught my first glimpse as street style queen Aleali May posted an Instagram video via front row runway. My first reaction was "WHAT ARE THOSE?!", but Aleali was rockin' them herself looking fierce. Worn right, ladies could really slay these streets down in this boot.
We will definitely need our ladies to weigh in on this boot (POLL idea!). Would you rock this? If so, how would you wear them? While I appreciate high fashion x sneakers x street style overlapping into each other's worlds - do you all feel they are on the right path?
We expect to see many more opportunities to cross over sneakers into high end fashion as the industry keeps evolving and innovation is on a climax.
