Vogue x Air Jordan 3 “AWOK”

A main character in a movie that was nominated for two Oscars was inspired by her. She’s been name-dropped multiple times by Kanye West. She’s held the position of editor-in-chief at Vogue Magazine since 1988. Now, she’s getting her own Air Jordan 3 collaboration. Yeah, it’s safe to say that Anna Wintour has got it going on. After a, Air Jordan 1 High Zip complete with Vogue and Wintour detailing dropped in July, the masterful editor is back in the collaborative spotlight, as her two special Jordan 3s are set to release this month.

Arriving in a black and a red, both shoes boast a textured fabric upper with flecked silver detailing, inspired by the impeccable tweed jackets the sartorial legend is known to favor. A rich leather adorns the slimmed-down tongue and heel collar, and a shiny black plastic heel tab — inspired by Wintour’s signature black sunglasses — features a hand-scrawled “AWOK,” the mark Wintour leaves to let her staff know an issue of Vogue is ready to be sent to the printing press. “Edited by Vogue” detailing arrives on the insole and hangtag, and each colorway is rounded off by a two-tone black and sail midsole. For a touch of premium packaging (would Wintour accept anything less?), each pair also comes complete with two branded and signed dustbags — one for each shoe.

To releasing alongside both Air Jordan 1 High Zip colorways, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Winter will also be releasing two Air Jordan 3 AWOK colorways. One comes dressed in “University Red” and the other in a “Black” hue.Inspired by Anna’s signature suits and sunglasses, this Air Jordan 3 features tweed as the primary upper material, and a back heel with the AWOK moniker. Both shoes come in a premium box with two suede dust bags and an “Edited by Vogue” keychain.
