Eastside Golf’s collaborative partnership with Jordan Brand has been in full swing since 2021, with the pair not looking to slow down on their creative momentum anytime soon. So far, the two have reimagined some of the most iconic silhouettes in the Air Jordan lineup (from the Air Jordan 4 to the Air Jordan 12) to create unique golf sneakers that seamlessly blend style and performance. The upcoming Air Jordan 1 collaboration from Eastside Golf promises to be another game-changer, with the theme of the collaboration centred around the “Change” brought about in golf back in “1961”.
1961 was the year that the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) finally ended its “Caucasian-only” membership policy, allowing golfers of other ethnicities to compete professionally. The “Change” Eastside Golf x Air Jordan 1 Golf collab pays homage to this significant moment in golf history and aims to celebrate diversity and inclusivity within the sport.
Official images of the limited edition “Change” Eastside Golf x Air Jordan 1 Golf have finally been released, giving us a better opportunity to take in all the subtle nods the iconic silhouette’s design makes to the history of golf. The upper features a straightforward two-tone black and green colour scheme, with green leather taking on the sneaker’s base while black leather covers the overlays. The iconic Swoosh is then taken over by Eastside Golf branding in a cursive print adding a unique touch to the design. Below the Swoosh, the AJ1 features the words “CHANGE” and “1961” stamped on the heels in a black font. The sneaker’s packaging also features the same words written atop the box, once again emphasizing the change that was brought about in the iconic game back in 1961. Finally, the design is finished with the signature Eastside Golf logo on the right tongue, while the left tongue showcases the classic Air Jordan logo.
While the Eastside Golf x Air Jordan 1 collab boasts all the stunning aesthetics of the classic AJ 1, this golf-ready sneaker also offers practical features for the golf course. The outsole is designed with specialized traction patterns to provide optimal grip and stability during swings, ensuring that golfers can maintain their balance and power throughout their game. Additionally, the sneaker incorporates cushioning technology to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue during long rounds on the course.
The “Change” Eastside Golf x Air Jordan 1 Golf sneaker is scheduled to drop on Sept. 8 for $200 via Nike SNKRS US. This collaboration brings together style and performance, making it a must-have for sneakerheads who are also avid golfers. The unique design of the sneaker adds a touch of streetwear flair to the golf course, allowing golfers to express their style while maintaining the functionality and comfort needed for a successful round. For those interested in adding this golf offering to their collection, stay tuned for updates on release details and availability. With their limited-edition status, these sneakers will likely sell out quickly. So, be sure to keep an eye out for any updates so that you secure your pair, and don’t forget to follow us for more sneaker drops and reviews.
