Nike downright stepped up their sneaker game in 2020, huh? Yet with all their streamline of new releases, this has to be the one to take the cake. Challenging sneakerheads and the regular hype man with its eye-catching palette are the Air Jordan 1 Bio Hack "Baroque Brown" sneakers.
You might think that Nike giving it “baroque” in its name will portray regal hints of gold and rich colors on the kicks. But no, these retro AJ1s dance in a mix of loud colors and contrasting materials, creating a love-hate relationship with sneakerheads and non-sneakerheads alike. On a side note, although Nike refers to it as "Baroque Brown", people prefer calling it “Bio Hack” as it befittingly takes on inspiration from the rapid pace of life of Tokyo with a traditional design-plus-modern tones approach.
Released last September 2020 for 170 USD, this retro OG silhouette reimagines the 2005 Undefeated x Nike Dunk High colorways to feature a variety of varieties in one pair. The sneakers are equipped with a velvety suede texture on its mudguard in a muted blue color that continues up the eyelets before topping it off with a bright blue toe box in leather. The sides are schemed with Baroque Brown nubuck and black suedes, with the Air Jordan wings logo pressed in black, subsequently accentuating the signature Swoosh in metallic silver. The pop of color continues with the Laser Orange tongue with exposed foam that carries the Nike Air badge with blue stitching for that DIY feel. And lastly, emitting more vaporwave vibes on the shoes are the Racer Pink liners and the Mint Green midsoles completing the look.
So, if you are up for biohacking your style and making an eclectic fashion statement, then these AJ1s are perfect for you.
