OSIRIS TAKES FLIGHT IN THE AJ 5
Long-time Jordan appreciator Bloody Osiris styles the AJ5
Bloody Osiris is a New York-based stylist whose audacious fashion choices have attracted hardcore fans and a signature pose, ‘the Bloody.’
In addition to his loyal following, Osiris recently styled the Men’s SS18 Off-White show in Paris as well as modeling in fashion presentations himself. These jobs have allowed him to leave his mark on the fashion industry forever. Osiris’ go-to sneakers are Jordans, that he frequently pairs with his fashion-forward looks. Even with his Jordan selection, he goes bold, focusing on the rare archive 14, 15 and 16 models.
In July, Osiris created a “Jordan Appreciation Post” with a series of images of him styled in different models of his favorite Js. This month, Jordan Brand sent him the ‘Take Flight’ grey and red suede AJ 5s to style, which he rocked with tonal tracksuits.
Do you remember when you first started wearing Jordans?
I’m sure I came out the womb wearing Jordans.
How would you describe your style?
90s Nickelodeon in the hood.
What’s your favorite Jordan model?
Favorite model is the 15. Such a beautiful shoe, from the Kevlar mesh on the side to the colorways that have been released. The fact that the tongue is sticking out because Jordan used to stick his tongue out on the court – this is the reason I stick my tongue out in pictures. I can go on for days but Jordan should let me create the colorways for 15s.
How do you style your Js?
With clothes that don’t typically go well with Jordans but I do it so well you don’t notice.
Why are they your preferred sneakers?
The comfort and many styles to choose from.
What’s your favorite detail on the Jordan 5s?
The Air Jordan 5 ‘Take Flight’ will be available from 10am ET on 9/2 via jordan.com
