Birkin Bags Inspire the Latest Women’s Air Jordan
Jordan Brand are expanding their roster of WNBA athletes ahead of the 2022 season’s tip-off on May 6, and one of the newest team members is Isabelle Harrison of the Dallas Wings. Harrison is making her Jumpman debut with quite a bang too: in the Instagram post announcing her as the newest signee to the roster, she also debuted the Air Jordan 1 ‘Starfish.’
A women’s colourway that expands on Jordan Brand’s popular ‘Shattered Backboard’ theme, the ‘Starfish’ surrounds its signature orange accents with ‘White,’ ‘Sail’ and ‘Cacao Wow’ hits, the last of which is used sparingly around the collar for a luxurious contrast. This luxe colourblocking is a nod to Hermès’ famed Birkin bag, a grail-level purse that sells out instantly and goes for anywhere from $12,000 to $2 million on the aftermarket! Thankfully, these AJ 1s give you Birkin-inspired flair at a much more palatable $170 price point.

You can expect the Air Jordan 1 ‘Starfish’ to release via Nike SNKRS and select Swoosh stockists on July 21. It’s been produced up to a women’s size 12, which translates to a men’s 10.5.
