As we are slowly drifting away from November and getting into December. Thus, entering winter, we already know that our wardrobe will also change. Colder tones, warmer pieces, snuggly jumpers and everything we need to survive a cold winter. Colors usually take the back burner but not this year with those top 5 sneaker picks for a colorful November.
Nike Air Force 1 Fly Leather Ruohan Wang
Ruohan Wang collaborated with Nike and we could not be more in love with this first design! Three styles will showcase her creative vision: the Blazer Mid, Air Max 90 and Air Force 1. Today, let’s focus on the Air Force 1 or Nike Air Force 1 Fly Leather Ruohan Wang. If you look at it, it very obviously takes inspiration from the Earth.
We have been waiting quite some time to see the first few images of this new silhouette. The tease was quite unbearable but the wait was very worth it. The upper of the Air Force 1 reveals a free form mosaic replete with plenty of motifs. Sure, the pair is Earth-centered but it also delves into another theme: intentionally crude art style.
This soon-to-be iconic design displays anthropomorphic figures sprawled along the forefoot, swoosh and heel. You can find Chinese characters and quickly penciled portraits of the planet. Ruohan Wang reinterpreted florals against a blue backdrop, a shade that is well-utilized along the various Flyleather paneling as well as the artist’s signature-clad tongue tab.
This palette moves into pastel pinks, saturated reds and yellows with a bit of light brown, grey and white here and there. All in all, the shades make for an incredible colorway that may be better suited for summer but that will bring the pop of color November definitely needs!
Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Multicolor Lightbulb
This new Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Multicolor Lightbulb is a great follow-up to other colorblocked Air Jordan 1 Mids such as the Melody Ehsani and Blue the Great styles that were included in the Holiday 2019 “Fearless Ones” collection. Those multicolor colorways are gorgeous to look at and incredible to wear this winter!
This shoe is a glorious celebration of colors. Rich purple, blue and red accents mix together with pastel greens and yellow for an appealing amalgamation of tones both warm and relaxed. The starting point of the design are the white leather toes and quarter panels.
This new style is also a medley of materials, from more leather to suede and nubuck. There are hints of black on the Swooshes, tongue tags and lace that give the shoe a bit of a branded flair. Small red stitched details on the forefoot and heel add a dash of DIY. Of course, white midsoles and black outsoles finalize the look.
The pastel colors of those Air Jordan 1 Mid may make them perfect for spring. Yet, we think they would bring a much needed pop of color during winter, when everything is cold and glooming. The shoes are a women style but any color lover could sport them as well!
Air Jordan 1 Mid Maison Chateau Rouge Fearless
One of our favorite sneaker picks ever. During Fashion Week 2019, Jordan released the Fearless Ones collection, with a succession of sneaker release, all better than the last. This time, this exciting collaboration brought Maison Chateau Rouge to design an exclusive Air Jordan 1 Mid.
Youssuf Fofana, founder and designer of Maison Chateau Rouge met with the Jordan team for the first time at the Quai 54 streetball tournament in Paris. Saluting both African and Parisian craftsmanship, this Air Jordan 1 provides a bold combination of styles, cultures and colors.
A lover of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG UNC, Fofana decided to pay homage to this iconic design using the hallmark blue powder hue on the new mids. He added his brand’s signature yellow in both pastel and bright shades. The reddish-brown accents are a nod to Africa. Colors are key but it is texture that is the most important. It gives the design its tone with various debossed patterns across the upper.
Even the detailing swatches are eye-catching. Powder blue is on the heel, mudguard and collar flaps. Brown is on the forefoot and eyestays while a duo of yellows as the base layer on the quarter, toe and collar. This patchwork-style design is very representative of life in Paris’s diverse neighborhoods and provides a standout style. We are obsessed.
Air Jordan 1 Low Nothing But Net
The ‘Nothing but net’ colorway is a revival of the pattern used on an Air Jordan 7 back in 2015. It was memorable, it was glorious and it is not coming back, bringing a pop of color to your sneaker collection! You may not recall but Michael Jordan’s outfits have always been a topic of conversation. Apparently, his most famous outfit was a matching short and tee set he rocked at the 1992 Olympic Games. So of course, we had to include this style in our sneaker picks.
We wore a vibrant two-piece assemblage that inspired both the low-cut of the Air Jordan 1 Low Nothing But Net as well as the Air Jordan 7 signature pattern. Blending purple, blue, yellow, red and black, the jagged graphics appear on mudguards, eyestays and heels. Those colorful pieces sit atop a leather quarter and toe.
All in all, the whole shoe contrasts its textile build in both tone and material. The Swooshes and collars are adorned in black. The Jumpman logo is in red just like the iconic 23 on the white tongues and the ball-and-wings logo on the heels. White midsoles and black outsoles round off the look.
In the end, the Air Jordan 1 Low Nothing But Net showcases a very playful look that will get a lot of attention. Perfect all year round, they do bring a lot of color in a wardrobe and sneaker collection. Plus, because the colors tend to be on the darker side of things, they will fit in perfectly in your winter closet.
Air Jordan 1 Mid Multicolor Patent
It looks like Jordan brand loves to play with colors and texture, and this exclusive woman design is further proof of that. Not only is the pair very colorful, mixing warm and cold tones, but it also plays with materials, sporting both shiny and matte leather. The Air Jordan 1 Mid Multicolor Patent (W) is another very strong colorway to rock this winter.
One of our strongest sneaker picks, if you are enamored with the idea of mixing materials, you will indeed love the pair. It displays a varied construction of full grain leather and patent leather, and applies multi-color blocking atop. The shoes adorn orange, black, royal blue, red, green, grey and white.
The Jumpman branding on the tongues in red, a white midsole and a black rubber outsole finish off the look on the Air Jordan 1 Mid Multicolor Patent. The orange toe is an obvious nod to the Shattered Blackboard style that was so perfect for Halloween.
This style is a play on color and texture that we love to see. Exclusively designed for women, they are very versatile and would look just as great with a pair of boyfriend jeans or a dress. Since the signature of this look is ostentatious, you can either embrace that fully with a colorful outfit. Or you can make the sneakers the cherry on top of the cake with a very simple and neutral outfit.
