The introduction of the Air Jordan I (1) ’93 is a perfect example of how combining 2 awesome things does not always equal another awesome thing (look at the “rock rap” of Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock if you need further proof). For those unfamiliar with the Jordan 1 ’93, this Frankenstein of a creation takes the shape of the Air Jordan 1 Mid and mashes it up with features of the Air Jordan VIII, namely the fuzzy Jumpman logo on the tongue and the padded grooves around the heel. Jordan Brand must feel like they’re doing something right, because they continue to release new colorways of this shoe, evidenced by the May 4th release of the “Bright Citrus” colorway, and these, set to release on June 1st.
The Jordan 1 ’93 “Electric Green” features a loud White/Electric Green/Black/Gym Red colorway, reminiscent of the Jordan Aero Flight “Macho Man” that released last September. It kind of reminds this writer of a Mexican side dish, with the Electric Green reminiscent of limes, the Black representing black beans, and the Gym Red representing a spicy salsa; the white, of course, represents the chips, creating a “nacho” vibe, which is great, because I am obviously “nacho” friend if you buy these for me for my birthday, simply put. However, this is just this one writer’s opinion; if you like these, great! To each his own. Individuality is the spice of life… I think. Or maybe that was something else…
What do you think about this crazy creation? Love the bright and loud colorway? Detest this monstrosity of a shoe? Hungry after the nacho reference? Let us know in the comments below, and enjoy some more pics after the jump!
