5 advantages about Jordan 30
One year ago, Maya Moore and Aleali May met and spoke about the importance of women’s sports and sneaker culture at the launch of the new Jordan Women’s line in New York City. They highlighted their favorite Air Jordans — the Air Jordan X for Maya and the Air Jordan I for Aleali — and shared their own versions of the two silhouettes.
Their meeting that day inspired a new collaboration, the women’s-specific Maya Moore x Aleali May Court Lux Collection. Inspired by elements from their individual backgrounds, as well as a desire to bridge basketball and fashion, both shoes represent the greatness of these women in their respective fields. The collection features high-quality, color-blocked suede and personal details, including a removable fur tongue on the AJI and Maya’s logo on the AJX. Both shoes include Maya’s favorite color, Bordeaux, in addition to Light Armory Blue, Concord and Rush Red, and come with Black and Light Armory Blue laces.
Maya, as a four-time league champion, three-time All-Star MVP, two-time Finals MVP and two-time gold medalist, has been achieving greatness since she took her first step on the court, at three years old, in her hometown of Jefferson City, Missouri. Aleali, as a model, stylistand creative bridging street and luxury culture, has done the same ever since her elementary school days, when she’d pair her school uniform with Air Jordans from the swap meet.
As Jordan Brand family, Maya, 29, and Aleali, 26, have broken barriers in sport and culture — Maya as the first female basketball player to sign with the brand and Aleali as the first woman to release a unisex Air Jordan. Maya has had over 15 player exclusive Air Jordans (four of which went to retail), and this year, she made history by re-creating MJ’s iconic 1989 “Wings” advertisement. Aleali’s Air Jordan I marked the first time a woman has designed an AJI, and it was well-received globally.
