Everyone is currently getting ready for the last season of 2023. While it is always fun to enjoy the winter season, seasonal depression is natural, so for the sneakerheads who prefer spring and summer releases, this pair of custom Watermelon x Air Jordan 1 sneakers is for you.
Sometimes, the simplest things are the best, and the same goes for this simple but stunning pair of Watermelon x Air Jordan 1 sneakers designed by our favourite designer here at Fortress of Solitude. This pair may have few textures and over-the-top details, but it has everything you need for a wearable pair of sneakers in bold colours that will match your summer looks.
Starting from the bottom, we see that the outsole is a stunning bright green that dominates the outsole and the majority of the upper, seen on basically every element besides the accents. The creaminess of the colour may be too pastel to be a traditional watermelon look. Still, it perfectly suits fizzy and sugary watermelon sweets and the watermelon drinks we enjoy during summer.
The bubblegum pink midsole is the start of the pink accents that can be seen throughout the sneakers as the accent colour that appears throughout the overt accents like the Nike Air tag on the tongue label, the inner lining, the Air Jordan Wings Logo and finally the Nike Swoosh, and even the covert accents like the detailed pink stitching and the pink aglet on the end of the laces.
The standout moment is the basically luminescent green strip that makes up the separation between the sole unit and the upper unit. This luminescent green is the most reminiscent of watermelon-flavoured sweets and candy you might find worldwide. The bright strip comes through the rest of the look as a light-hearted moment that zips through the pair that is otherwise pretty muted and well-anchored.
Whether you want to wear it in spring or summer and want it to represent your favourite cocktail or your favourite fruit, these Watermelon x Air Jordan 1 custom sneakers are perfect for the warmer months in 2024, if only they were real and not just a concept (excuse me while I cry a little).
