Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse | Air Jordan 1 ‘Origin Story’

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse | Air Jordan 1 ‘Origin Story’


Life imitates art, imitates life… These Air Jordan 1 sneakers are inspired by Mile Morales from ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse’.

To coincide with the cinematic release of Sony Pictures’ highly anticipated animated movie ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse’, Nike are gearing up to drop a new pair of tie-in kicks.

As we’ve seen in the trailers for ‘Into the Spider-Verse’, the film’s main protagonist, Miles Morales, sports a distinctive red, black and white pair of Air Jordan sneakers.

Inspired by this, Nike have produced a tie-in version of the Air Jordan 1 called ‘Origin Story’. They come in a similar colourway to that seen in the film and feature some subtle detailing that reflects the look of Spider-Man’s costume.

Nike’s sneakers made their debut at the ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ premier at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood on December 1st. A wider release is planned from December 14th when the film hits cinemas in the U.S.

Whether the Air Jordan 1 ‘Origin Story’ shoes will be available outside of the U.S. isn’t entirely clear at this time. The film debuts in theatres a couple of days earlier in the U.K. than in north America with a release date advertised as December 12th.
