Aleali May has mastered the art of sneaker collaborations.
With a handful of hits already under her belt, no one is doing it quite like the LA-born stylist. From her unisex Air Jordan 1 teaming up with the GOAT Maya Moore to her multigenerational Air Jordan 6, the queen of queens dominates footwear like no one else.
Aleali’s influence can be found from the runway to the streets from Paris, France to Paris, Texas, without much effort. To celebrate the icon and her success that’s far from over, we take a look at every Aleali May sneaker collaboration — both released and unreleased.
Take a look at each pair below to learn more. Keep it locked on Nice Kicks and the Air Jordan release dates page to stay on top of everything Air Jordans.
Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Satin Shadow” | 2017
Aleali spun the iconic Air Jordan 1 “Shadow” the only way she knows how — a touch of luxury. Inspired by her Los Angeles roots, Aleali May implemented satin, corduroy, and a chenille grey Swoosh for an all-encompassing look that took her Air Jordan 1 collab to a new level.
Aleali drew inspiration from her childhood with her father and uncle’s black corduroy house slippers. Additionally, the silver satin look on the forefoot and heel, the pop of orange on the tongue, and the textured Swoosh call back to a classic varsity style look and feel.
Aleali May x Air Jordan “Court Lux” Collection | 2018
Two greats teamed up. Maya Moore and Aleali May embodied the sport and streetwear crossover on the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 10 collection. Aleali cooked up a colorful set of pairs, and the use of premium suede only added to the shoe’s elegance.
Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 “Court Lux”
The Air Jordan 1 embodied Aleali’s high-fashion ethos with its removable faux fur tongue and rich suede. The color combination on these was pulled off perfectly, making the colorway a great accessory to any outfit.
Maya Moore x Aleali May x Air Jordan 10
You can’t mention Maya Moore and not include the Air Jordan 10. Hailed as her favorite Air Jordan model to hoop in (who can blame her?), the UConn and Minnesota Lynx legend passed the torch of the 10 onto Aleali May.
The collaborative Air Jordan 10 was the perfect contrast to the Air Jordan 1 as the colors balanced one another. With the premium suede much like the 1, the Maya Moore x Aleali May x Air Jordan 10 was engineered for fashion and function.
Aleali May x Air Jordan 6 “Millennial Pink” | 2019
While every Air Jordan model has aged with grace, few silhouettes have been able to withstand the test of time and inspire a new generation of footwear lovers like the Air Jordan 6.
As an ode to the silhouette and its generational gusto, Aleali May paired the model with the “Millennial Pink” look as a testament to the color’s ability to appeal to more than one gender. Her third Installment with Jordan Brand captured both the past and present form of Aleali as told by a classic model with a new look.
Unreleased Aleali May x Air Jordan 4 | 2020
An Aleali May x Air Jordan 4 could potentially be in the works. Aleali teased her collaborative Air Jordan 4 for Veteran’s Day as a tribute to her father’s service. Aleali’s father was a member of the 4th Infantry Division during the Gulf War’s Operation Desert Storm.
The F&F pair is dressed in a earth tone and includes a Jordan Brand version of the Infantry’s logo on the tongue with obvious nods to May’s service. There’s little information if we’ll ever see this pair, or at least this version, make its way to a wide release.
Regardless, props to Aleali and Jordan Brand for a touching tribute to her father.
Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT | 2021
Aleali May and the Air Jordan 1 meet yet again. This time, however, calls on the Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT, the latest modern adaptation of the classic.
Aside from the addition of Zoom Air, the Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT features a bootie construction that carries her signature satin varsity jacket aesthetic. Dressed in a popping green and blue, a sail midsole, tongue, and chenille wings logo provide an extra touch to the colorway.
Once again, May’s vision and attention to detail provides a level of excitement that we all can get behind.
