PSNY and Air Jordan draw inspiration from an iconic New York footwear staple.
The 2015 collaboration between fashion design duo Public School and Jordan Brand produced one of the more coveted Air Jordan 12s in recent memory. Now the two are coming back together for what is sure to be another very limited and highly sought pair of Air Jordan 12s. This time, they’re applying a “Wheat” look to the silhouette.
Since both designers who make up PSNY are native New Yorkers, the inspirations for this one should be obvious: Timberland boots. The new 12s were on display at the PSNY pop up shop in New York City this week, and Nice Kicks grabbed some up-close photos of the new collaboration. The monochromatic look is definitely Public School’s style. Although Timbs are the inspiration, this is still a premium collaboration – they didn’t use actual Timberland materials. Instead the shoes use a buttery-soft suede everywhere except the midsole and outsole.
We’ll have more details about the release as the come, but for now appreciate the craftsmanship.
