People Are Bleaching and Destroying the Levi’s x Air Jordan 4 Sneakers

Now that the Levi’s x Air Jordan collection has formally launched, some lucky owners of the collaborative kicks are putting their personal touches on the denim-draped design.

With an indigo denim upper practically begging to be distressed, the retro Air Jordan 4 sneakers have been tattered and torn by several social media users including Mike “Upscale Vandal” Carmago and Kith photographer Tyler Mansour.

From sanding and shredding to full-on bleaching and custom patches, the sneakers have been destroyed in the best way possible.

This limited launch released globally at just a handful of doors for a retail price of  $225, and it’s currently reselling for an average of around $600.
