The First-Ever FlyEase Jordan and a Host of New Collaborations Highlight the Fearless Ones Collection
This holiday season, Jordan Brand celebrates the power and impact of the Air Jordan I franchise with new interpretations and collaborations in the Fearless Ones collection, along with fresh articulations of contemporary classic color schemes. Each pair serves to extend the defining spirit of the pioneering silhouette.
The Fearless Ones collection is led by the AJI High FlyEase, which exemplifies the symbolic power of the AJI as a conduit for stories that share what it means to be fearless. The remainder of the Fearless Ones collection follows this theme by highlighting communities, collaborators (cultural leaders from across the globe who inspire people to reach new heights in their respective fields) and illuminating stories connected to MJ’s intrepid drive.
Taking insights and inspiration from adaptive athletes, the Air Jordan I is the first Jordan Brand shoe to feature Nike FlyEase technology. The AJI High FlyEase adds the new benefit of easy entry while staying true to the silhouette’s iconic look, colors and materials. It features a zipper and strap FlyEase System for easy, one-handed heel entry and exit, and an adjustable eyestay hook and loop for top entry.
Made to shine, this AJ1 features a textured upper with metallic rose gold panels and a Fearless Ones branded insole.
Like the OG, which was a culture-shifting movement disguised as a basketball shoe, the AJ1 High Zoom is more than meets the eye. Using an iridfescent-inspired upper, the color shifts with the light, beautifully displaying another side to its appearance and challenging viewers to appreciate what lies beneath the surface. Additional details include full-length Zoom Air for superior cushioning and an icy sole with a color fade and “Z” (Zoom) graphic.
Inspired by the first three AJ1 patent leather mid colorways, this version pays tribute to MJ’s basketball journey by combining University Blue and Gym Red on a patent leather upper. The original black/gold patent leather colorway sees its tribute come to life on the gold jeweled Wings logo
Created in collaboration with the cullinary collective, Ghetto Gastro, this silhouette brings a new flavor to the AJ1. Inspirations include comfort, unity and the streets of New York City where design, art and empowerment intersect.

Brought to life by cutting-edge Japanese brand, FACETASM, this AJ1 is inspired by their expression of Tokyo and features their signature crinkled look, a woven brand label and a heel tab for easy entry and exit
Parisian lifestyle brand Maison Chateau Rouge applies African-inspired design cues and hand-stitched detailes to the AJ1 mid in honor to its founder’s roots.
Los Angeles-based designer Melody Ehsani brings her signature style and message of self-expression, female empowerment and paradox to the AJ1 mid. Highlights include a decorative gold watch dubrae and a hand-lettered quote on the midsole that reads : “If you knew what you had was dare, you would never waste it”. Additional hidden ispirational messages from Ehsani are hidden throughout.
CLOT founder Edison Chen adds his personal twist to the AJ1 with a woven nylon upper and fadeway Swoosh that represents the hidden details revealed under the shoe’s upper by natural wear or customization. A Chinese token-inspired design detail spells out “Jordan”
Highlighted by a crinkled patent leather upper, this AJ1 uses Black, Orange and Sail for a fall-inspired colorway
