Billie Eilish may have left her hair green, but it looks like she’s still a fan of the color as it appears in her new collaboration with Air Jordan.
On September 20, Billie announced the long-awaited partnership on Instagram, sharing that she designed two styles of Air Jordans for the collab: an Air Jordan 1 KO and an Air pair. Jordan 15. “I’m so excited to share the last. two of my Air Jordan silhouettes with you!!” Billie wrote. “I’ve always loved @jumpman23 and it’s been an incredible and surreal experience creating these.”
In the photos, Billie wears each of her designs a pair of Jordan 1 KO glow-in-the-dark pistachio green (!!!) and a mushroom Jordan 15. Each pair is made with sustainable materials, a cause close to Billie’s heart and her mission; They are made with 100% vegan leather instead of traditional leather and, as Billie noted in her post, contain more than 20% recycled materials. The shoes also feature Billie’s logo and her name alongside the iconic Air Jordan logo. Sneaker News notes that Nike is currently working towards zero waste and the partnership with Billie is a great example of where the brand is headed.
This isn’t the first time Billie has worked with a major brand to create positive change and demonstrate her values. As noted by Vogue, Billie worked with the team at Oscar de la Renta, who designed her giant peach-pink Met Gala dress, on discontinuing the use of fur. “I’m really delighted that Fernando and Laura and the rest of the Oscar de la Renta team heard me talk about this and made a change that not only made a better impact for the animals but also for both the planet and our environment,” Billie said. “I’m honored to be the catalyst and to hear about this. I urge all designers to do the same.”
News of Billie’s collaboration with Jordan originally leaked back in June. The partnership between Billie, one of the biggest pop stars in the world, and Nike, the world’s biggest shoe company, is a relationship. Great ties and designs have been highly anticipated by sneakers and music fans alike. This partnership is guaranteed to sell out quickly, so if you want to buy a pair, start building your discount plan now. Billie’s Jordans launches September 27 on her website and September 30 on the Nike SNKRS app.
