The Shoe Surgeon Crafts the Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 ‘Lux’

The Shoe Surgeon is no stranger to the iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette, and his latest creation uses the sought-after Nigel Sylvester colourwayas its base.

The customisation king has luxed-up the pair with premium provisions such as python leather with distressed detailing, nodding to the BMX rider’s 2018 collaboration. Interior plonge-leather lining and leather laces add to the high-end aesthetic.

‘I thought Nigel had the best AJ1 of 2018,’ says the Surgeon. ‘Just from riding BMX, Nigel has paved his path of opportunity, from creating amazing videos, to getting his own colabs with Nike, to sitting front row at the fashion shows. These are my nod to him and all his success. This shoe entails a lot of manual labour, but it’s worth every bit.’

The Nigel Sylvester ‘Lux’ Air Jordan 1 will be available on February 9 for $3,000 via The Shoe Surgeon’s official website.
