  1. Look at how nicely the Union AJ1 ages, the leather patina looks great with the oxidized midsole. Definitely adds character to a vintage look.

  2. Great vid, wish I was able to cop any of Union’s collabs these past years but here’s to the next release 🙏🏽

  3. People don’t understand that just x years ago none of these brands got to design a Jordan ever. Occasional DB and that was it. No frag, Union, supreme, Travis Scot etc.
