Air Jordan 1 “Kamikaze War Boys”, inspired by the car-exploding and fuel-thrusting scenes from the apocalyptic Mad Max movie franchise, with elements drawn from death-racing, speed-outlaws, Nu-metal bondage and desert Gypsies.
Main materials include gray rhino-embossed leather representing the pale/diseased complexion of the War Boys, and black denim distressed to catch the looks of knife cuts, gun shots, and crash wounds.
As the sons of Immortal Joe who follow his lead to Valhalla, the toe boxes are half-painted with motif of his characteristic skull mask. Back of the shoes are decorated with panels of Gypsy carvings, and inner half-lined with shearling fleece.
To complete the biker attire, mohawk spikes are planted down the back heels, and side Swooshes are replaced with metal studs. Heavy-duty nylon zippers are used instead of conventional lacing system, and speed-racing goggles are added for extra flavor.
