Aleali May's Jordan Brand "Fortune" Collection pays homage to Her Family's Filipina and Black Heritage

Aleali May is embarking on her fifth project with the Beaverton-based sportswear brand titled the “Fortune” Collection.

The assemblage — which features an elevated take atop the Air Jordan 14 Low along with matching apparel — is designed as a love letter to her family’s Filipina and black heritage.

The focus of the kicks in this new capsule is jade — a mineral that May holds close to her heart as she once was gifted jade bangles from her grandmother as a means of good fortune. Marbled green midsole molds are brought in to mimic the aesthetic of this precious stone and come complemented with sandy upper constructions and the gilded lace tips. 

Inspired by the love of family and the multi-cultural aspects of Aleali May’s heritage, the Aleali May x Air Jordan XIV ‘Fortune’ encapsulates nostalgia while paying homage to the legendary sneaker model. Tapped by Jordan brand to highlight the collection, we expanded on her story within our community of inspiring, diverse women to celebrate and acknowledge the beauty in blending cultures.

A very special thank you to Mk Xyz, Sakura, & Zoe Carson for capturing the inspiration authentically and Kamayan ATL for providing an amazing meal.

The Aleali May x Air Jordan XIV ‘Fortune’ dinner was an inspirational experience that celebrated and acknowledged the beauty in blending cultures, in reference to Aleali May’s family-oriented muse for this collection.
