Over the past few years, the Air Jordan 1 has remained the top dog thanks to Jordan Brand keeping it fresh in new colourways and updated versions. From GORE-TEX covered iterations to Hologram-adorned masterpieces, we’ve been swimming in AJ1s and it just keeps on coming! Next up to join the AJ1 catalogue is a bright combo that’s been dubbed ‘Volt’ aka ‘Visionaire’.
This pair first surfaced back in February of this year with fans and leakers affectionately naming this pair ‘Volt’ due to the bright hue covering most of the upper. However after the official reveal, we learnt that Jordan Brand is naming this pair ‘Visionaire’ and after witnessing the graffiti style font on the box, it may be related to the ‘Rebellionaire’.
The rendition is designed with Chicago-style color-blocking and is guided by its neon accents. Standing out across the upper half are its bright and bold “Volt” hits which touch down on the overlays, ankle flaps and the banners on the tongues. A trio of neutral tones neighbor these components such as the crispy white toe boxes and quarters, the solid black Swooshes, laces collars and wings logos as well as the faint creamy tongues. Elsewhere, the underlays are in white, while the overlays use the familiar Nike ‘Volt’ tone with contrasting black Swoosh, ankle and Wings logo.
