Original Story (02/02/20): Ahead of his performance at the Super Bowl LIV Half Time Show, J. Balvin gives a first look at his Air Jordan 1 collab.
The reggaeton star’s AJ1 features a thermal rainbow design on it’s canvas upper. The canvas features DIY-style trimming along the edges of the Swoosh, toe cap, heel, and ankle. J Balvin’s yellow smiley logo appears on the left foot tongue tab and on an embellishment on the lateral heel.
We’ll be seeing these tonight on the feet of the reggaeton star, as he performs alongside J. Lo, Shakira, and more. Maybe he’ll rock his BAPE stuff too. Stay tuned for release info, if any.
