Designed in collaboration with Los Angeles based artist, Blue the Great, this AJ I leans on his love for primary colors on a suede and corduroy upper with his BTG artist signature featured on the heel. BTG started his art career in high school by hand-painting sneakers for friends, and has used the AJ I as a canvas in the past, but never like this.
As often seen in his work, each primary color plays off the one next to it to accentuate its individual impact. His red, black, and white color suede overlays in this special-edition AJ I are a familiar color blocking scheme to any AJ I fan, but that combination sets the rest of the sneaker up for tasteful experimentation with royal blue, golden yellow, and green suede overlays that are worthy of a double-take in the streets. There may be six distinct colors in this AJ I, and yet they all come together for one cohesive design thanks to perfect placement.
