The Internet has made a lot of things easier, including sneaker shopping. Just a few decades ago, the only way you could purchase new kicks is if you actually went to a store and checked out the nice pairs on offer. Longtime sneakerheads could even recall a time when they had to travel long distances just to cop a new release, which to some makes the purchase even more satisfying. But with the advent of online retailing, the glorious feeling is mostly foreign to current and younger hypebeasts, save for when they are actually among the first to learn of the news and be successful in grabbing limited edition sneakers. We would imagine that one would feel an overwhelming sense of triumph purchasing the very beautiful Bordeaux Air Jordans, a product of a fruitful partnership between Nike and Public School NY.

The Air Jordan x PSNY 12 “Bordeaux” is not the first release from the collab between Nike and Public School NY, as previous Jordans were already launched in “Wheat” as well as “Olive”. But similar to the mentioned versions, the Bordeaux uses buttery suede for its exterior, as well as the usual branding on the heel and the sole, making them unmistakably Jordans.
The most noticeable feature of the Air Jordan x PSNY 12 “Bordeaux” is its lovely and rich wine color, which feels luxurious and unique as the colorway is rarely ever used on any of the existing Air Jordans. The suede feels premium and is delightful to touch, something that is not new with this iteration of the Air Jordan and Public School NY collab but still something we highly appreciate. The rest of the shoe shows that Nike did not skimp on the quality as well. The version with the cream-colored outsoles meshes well with the wine color, and the silver eyelets are nice tiny touches. As for the fit, these Jordans are true to size and provide a comfortable space to avoid pinching the toes.
The Air Jordan x PSNY 12 “Bordeaux” does look bulky, and indeed feel that way, so they probably are not the best kicks to opt for should you want to take long, light walks. The standout color makes it a little tricky to match them with your outfits too, although you won’t go wrong with neutrals.
