After being leaked for the first time by the skater Lui Elliott, the new Air Jordan 1 Switch went viral thanks to a brand new feature. The sneakers seem like a normal Air Jordan 1 High, in the colourway brown, beige and black in suede, with light blue details on the outsole, laces and ankles. What caught the attention of the sneakerheads is a killer feature on the collar: a zip that allows the shoes to switch from High to Low. The inspiration comes from the skater scene, is known that the skaters are used to cut off the collar from their shoes.
