The first silhouette for the upcoming Jordan Brand x Dior collection, the Air Jordan I High OG Dior, appears to have been given to Kylian Mbappe as a belated birthday gift by none other than Dior Artistic Director Kim Jones.
Since Kylian Mbappe is a bit of a sneakerhead, Nike recently gave the PSG superstar striker his own signature Air Max 98 as part of his first-ever collection, dubbed “Bondy Dreams.” Despite the gift arriving approximately a month after his 21st birthday, he posted information about the ᴜɴᴇxᴘᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ Air Jordan I High OG Dior gift on his Instagram stories, showcasing yet another benefit of being the most expensive football player in the world.
Mbappe enjoys basketball as much as he enjoys sneakers, so it wouldn’t be sᴜʀᴘʀɪsɪɴɢ to see the Frenchman on the court after his meeting with the Charlotte Hornets ahead of their NBA season opener in Paris. And while he’s at it, it wouldn’t come as a huge sᴜʀᴘʀɪsᴇ to see him wearing his brand-new Air Jordan I High OG Dior. There aren’t many better venues to flaunt what you have if you have it.
The collaborative, limited-edition Air Jordan 1 High OG celebrates the first Dior men’s collection debut in the United States and the 35th anniversary of the Air Jordan. It also commemorates the 35th anniversary of the Air Jordan. This shoe is perfect for Mbappe because it combines the classic appeal of the shoe with the iconic Dior style.
