The Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT 2 “Familia” Pays Homage to Hispanic Heritage

Nike is certainly no stranger when it comes to sneakers that celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. Over the past couple of years, the American sportswear company has released Air Max 1s and Pegasus 40s that all pay tribute to this cultural holiday. But while all of these are painted in attention-grabbing palettes, the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT 2 “Familia” goes for a more subdued appearance instead.

At first glance, the sneaker appears to be elegantly shrouded in dark canvas. However, upon closer examination, its intricate details come to life. The upper, a combination of black and silver, subtly evokes the worn aesthetics found in Latin America’s rich archaeological discoveries. Faded textures grace the mudguard, eyestays, and collar, creating a connection to the region’s historical richness.

Taking a step closer, and you’ll begin to notice the embroidered floral patterns that delicately adorn the toebox and sidewalls. A skull sporting a traditional feathered headdress adds a touch of gold to the lateral heel, inspired by the lively carnival attire seen throughout Spanish-speaking territories.

With the spirit of Día de Muertos (or the Day of the Dead) in its veins, the design is deeply rooted in the rich heritage of Hispanic culture. If you’re seeking to move beyond just fun colour combinations and want something that makes a statement by being understated, these Air Jordans would definitely be on your radar.

Expected to release sometime in October, make sure you keep it locked at Captain Creps for your best chance to cop the Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT 2 “Familia” FQ8155-010!
