These Air Jordan Sneakers Are Covered With 15,000 Crystals — And You Won’t Believe the Price Tag

When it comes to sneaker customization, the Air Jordan 1 is among the most popular silhouettes. Conceptual artist Dan Life (Daniel Jacob) has transformed the popular sneaker into a wearable piece of art with his latest Jordan 1 “Northern Lights.”

This luxurious version of the kicks will utilize the “Los Angeles” Air Jordan 1 Retro colorway as the foundation, featuring more than 15,000 crystals that have been set by hand.

The sneaker glistens from the tiny blue-tinted gems individually placed throughout the entirety of the upper. Additional details include a tan sock liner, white colored tongue and midsole, which sit atop a blue translucent outsole. According to the artist, the pair is wearable and is available for purchase in a limited run, with sizes ranging between men’s 8 to 14.
