Editor’s Notes: There is nothing worse than that feeling when you step out on a blue sky day, not a cloud in sight, dressed new in your coolest pair of suede sneakers (Mocha AJ1, say), and he starts to rain. Pain.

Okay sure, checking the weather is pretty much the first step in any form of seasonal dress, but when you’ve finally managed to get your favorite pair of shoes, you want to wear them to death – and we’re big. supporters of this.

Lucky for all of us, Nike knows that feeling and year after year provides the tools to protect our sneakers (and feet) from the elements.

With the arrival of the Air Jordan 1 Element, weather is becoming obsolete, thanks to the industry’s trusted rain protection – GORE-TEX.

GORE-TEX is our best ally when it comes to tackling inclement weather head-on, providing waterproofing for outerwear (see Arc’teryx and Palace), as well as sneakers like the Air Force 1 and AJ1.

This revisited version of the classic pairs a silver gray with a deep teal blue. Teal fills in the underlays in the toe and midfoot area, while the heel and lace take on the monochrome hue. Fashionable AJ1, the overlays, laces, outsole and liner are all finished in Black, while the midsole remains pristine white.

GORE-TEX branding sits towards the heel, reminding you before the rain that they’re outfitted to face whatever the sky chooses to throw at them.
