Passion and inspiration lead us in all we do. We want you to show us what inspires you. Use this Jordan 1 canvas to express yourself and show us how your life is bigger than sneakers. There is only one rule…show us who you are and explain your design. You can color in sections, draw around the shoe, take it into Photoshop and add textrues. It doesn't matter as long as you express who you are.
