In the midst of one of the most dominant dynasties in U.S. professional sports history, the Golden State Warriors took to Twitter to tease the upcoming sneaker partnership with Nike. In the brief video, the Dubs list their six championship-winning seasons while showing off the silhouette of an Air Jordan 1 with a few tweaks including a prominent heel loop, exposed Flywire, new lacing system, and no a side Wings logo or any other Jumpman branding. While it is certainly possible that the brand is missing due to the simplicity of the sneaker’s silhouette in the video, it will certainly be worth following to see what stands out from this intriguing duo. While you wait for updates on this Warriors-themed Nike sneaker, check out the upcoming Nike SB Air Jordan 1 and stay tuned.
