During the design process for the Nike Air Yeezy, Mark Smith and the wizards in Nike’s Innovation Kitchen created a 1 of 1 Nike Air Yeezy sitting on Air Jordan VI tooling. The upper features the complete Nike Air Yeezy as designed by Kanye West and the Nike iK sitting on the midsole and outsole from the Air Jordan VI. The entire package comes in an “all Black everything” Blackout colorway with a smoked Black outsole. This 1 of 1 Nike Air Yeezy x Air Jordan VI Sample was vaulted at the time of it’s creation and has never been seen since. Kanye didn’t even get to see it.
Unlike many things that get created behind the Innovation Kitchen’s iron curtain, the1 of 1 Nike Air Yeezy x Air Jordan VI will be made available to the public through an auction in benefit of the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. All of the proceeds from the winning bid will go to benefit the Doernbecher program. Look for the auction to go live soon.
