Jordan and Levi’s Team Up for a Pair of Denim Sneakers and Matching Jacket

jordan and levi's
Two of America’s most iconic style brands have come together for an impressive collaboration for the start of 2018. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the first Jordan and Levi’s project, the storied companies have unveiled two more timeless creations: Levi’s x Air Jordan 4 denim sneaker and reversible jacket.

The Jordan Brand sneaker blends a legwear staple with an iconic silhouette in respectable fashion with a denim exterior and custom seam work.

This highly-anticipated release includes an extra piece of leather with the Jordan logo on the tongue — similar to what you’d see on the waistband of a pair of jeans — as well as the signature Levi’s red tab on the outside.

You could go the extra mile and accompany your new kicks with the Levis Strauss & Co. reversible trucker jacket. One side of the jacket features Levi’s classic denim texture with red Flight Suit accents on the arm, and the other boasts the classic nylon look complete with the Jumpman logo.

Air Jordan, crafted by sneaker god and Nike designer Tinker Hatfield, hit the shelves in 1985 as Michael Jordan began to pave his way to basketball immortality. The Air Jordan sneakers has since garnished somewhat of a cult following, experiencing frenzied crowds on release dates and absurd resell prices. Jordan’s first-ever collaboration in 2005, the UNDFTD x Air Jordan 4, retails fort $55,000 on Stadium Goods — the most expensive pair of shoes they’ve ever offered.

The Levi’s x Air Jordan 4 ($255) and matching Levi’s Jordan Reversible Trucker Jacket ($180) were released Wednesday, January 17 at select retailers; you can find the full list here. Rumors on Sneaker News say we could see a black denim colorway release in June 2018.

If you do invest in a pair, you’re going to want to learn how to clean sneakers. Seeing as how these are denim, though, you might want to take some tips from our jean-washing guide.

Why You Absolutely Need This Heated Jacket
Puffer jacket

I've trusted Columbia Sportswear -- one of our favorite outdoor clothing brands for men -- to keep me warm for years. I've worn their insulated jackets, pants, hats, and gloves on frigid mountains at well above 15,000 feet of elevation. I've worn their parkas while trekking through the snowy backwoods of New England. And I trust Columbia base layers when I go for winter jogs around my suburban neighborhood.

Why? Because this is an outdoor gear and apparel brand that puts its money where its mouth is. Columbia dedicates huge amounts of money, time, and resources to developing technologies and materials that can be integrated into their products, and they don't bring a new product to market until it has been thoroughly tested and proven successful. Still, I was glad to get the chance to do some product testing myself, and take it from their team and from me, the new Omni-Heat Black Dot technology from Columbia is successful, if you count staying incredibly warm even when you're somewhere incredibly cold as a success.

The Best Work-From-Home Jackets That Work Everywhere Else

United States Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio famously appeared at President Trump’s early 2020 impeachment proceedings wearing a conservative shirt and tie, but — unlike his fellow politicos — he eschewed wearing a suit jacket. Apparently, it’s a regular thing for the representative. Perhaps it’s to express his disdain for governmental procedure, or perhaps, as President Trump himself has suggested, it was better to show off his wrestler’s physique. All politics aside, from a style perspective, the man comes off as being a bit too laid back for our tastes. We are not in the middle of one of “the Swamp’s” infamously sticky summers, nor has the nation’s capital adopted a casual dress policy. He comes off looking less well-dressed, and more undressed. 

It’s something to keep in mind for our own day-to-day. While many of us find ourselves in offices where a great-fitting dress shirt and trouser combo can both get us through the day and keep Human Resources happy, when it’s time for a surprise client visit or new business meeting, showing up in your shirtsleeves doesn’t bring the right level of respect and formality. When working remotely, the same rule applies: Nobody would be surprised if you showed up for your Zoom conference in a T-shirt or henley, but wouldn’t a blazer or lightweight jacket command a bit more respect? Here we’ve gathered some of our favorite menswear essentials— from knit blazers, chore jackets, smoking jackets, cardigans, and bomber jackets that will jazz up your work-from-home wardrobe, and enhance your on-screen presence.
