It’s hard not to be wonderstruck when it comes to seeing the many local talents and creatives in Australia collaborating to put together this gorgeous 1-of-1 pair of Air Jordan 1s. Dubbed as “Drake Air”, the legendary sneaker silhouette is beautifully hand-crafted by Melbourne’s BespokeIND with only the finest animal hides, including but not limited to, kangaroo hide, tumbled calf leather, and baby lambskin.

The sneakers are constructed with OG leather tongue tags; hand-perforated “6” on 1985 raked toe boxes, 3D “swoosh” and Canadian Maple Leaf surrounds with kangaroo leather backing, and OVO x STONEisland button up patchworks.

Colour-blocked in an off-white, grey, red, and white colourway, the Air Jordan 1s are finished off with luxurious lambskin leather laces and OVO owl dubraes, locally crafted in Sydney out of solid 18-karat gold and VS diamonds delivered from the boys at LaceSpace.

The Drake Airs were gifted to the “6 God” during his Melbourne leg of the Boy Meets World tour, in a red leather drawstring bag by Lyx Leather, cradled in a custom wooden box branded with “Drake Air” on the lid.
