Public School partnered with the Jordan brand to revamp the cult classic Jordan 1 in a limited-edition style.
NAME: Public School x Jordan NY23 Air Jordan Sneaker
HISTORY: Public School, winner of the 2014 CFDA Menswear Designer of Year and the U.S. International Woolmark Prize for men’s wear, partnered with the Jordan brand to revamp the cult classic Jordan 1 in a limited-edition PSNY/NY23. Inspired by New York City, the hometown of designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, the collaboration features a sleek, black leather shoe and pebbled sole.
DESIGN PHILOSOPHY: “New York City has long been an inspiration for Public School and also provided the theme for the PSNY Air Jordan sneaker,” said Chow. Osborne added that “the city is known for the love of basketball, its busy streets and for its landscape, which helped us bring our vision to life.”
PRICE POINTS: $160 for the NY23.
KEY TAKEAWAY FOR THE SEASON: The Jordan brand designed the “NY23” Jordan 1 sneaker and allowed Public School to create its own version. Fifty friends of the Public School brand will be gifted these pairs with the letters “PSNY” on the back. The retail version will have the “NY23” inscription and will be sold exclusively at Flight 23 stores in New York City.
