Discommon & Shoe Surgeon Re-Engineered the Air Jordan 1 with a Boa Lacing System

Discommon teams up with the Shoe Surgeon and Boa to reconstruct the Air Jordan 1 in laceless fashion.

Apparently, laceless is in for 2019.

From the Air Jordan 33, adidas N3XT L3V3L, Nike Adapt BB and now this… a reconstructed Air Jordan 1.

Discommon is an interesting place. The best way I can describe it is that they make everyday items… but cooler. From $800 straight razors to $230 bottle openers, I suppose it was only a matter of time before they tinkered with sneakers.

Actually, they found it best to team up with the Shoe Surgeon for the sneaker tinkering. Creator of Discommon, Neil Ferrier, loves the Air Jordan 1 and wanted to do away with its laces in lieu of a Boa system. However, you can’t just use a Boa system with Boa’s permission. Luckily, Ferrier and Discommon have a great relationship with Boa.

The shoe itself features the popular Black Toe colorway that has been completely deconstructed and reconstructed with premium leather panels sitting atop a ballistic mesh build. Boa’s fit system is in place with a special anodized red dial to adjust the shoes fit any way you’d like.

It’s always cool to see something classic reimagined into something new. You can actually buy the re-engineered Air Jordan 1 if you’re a big baller for $4500 — sizes are limited to 8, 9, 10 and 12 at TheShoeSurgeon.com.

Let us know what you think about this re-engineered Air Jordan 1s below and if you’re already tired of the laceless trend we’ve seen over the past few months.
