The queen of high fashion has given trainers the seal of approval.

The classic Nike Air Jordan silhouette, beloved by sneaker-heads worldwide, will now be inextricably linked to the world of high fashion through a new collaboration with Vogue and Anna Wintour.

Wintour, the long-term editor-in-chief of American Vogue, is the influence behind Nikes first ever Air Jordan collection for women.

The capsule collection features four designs, all with the recognisable high-top shape, and all inspired by the style and aesthetic of the formidable Vogue editor.

The two AJI Zip AWOK styles come in leather and are available in flamboyant University Red or white Sail.

They are accompanied by the AJ3 AWOK designs, which are a little bit more extra.

They come in black and red plaid, as a nod to Anna Wintours distinctive personal style. Her penchant for sunglasses and tweed suits (Chanel obviously, darling) is celebrated in these sneakers, allowing every fashion forward sneaker-lover to channel a little bit of the Vogue editors magic.

Each pair of shoe also bears the slogan AWOK or Anna Wintour Okay on the sole or heel and comes with an Edited by Vogue label.

On Instagram, Vogue said: Every Vogue editor remembers their first AWOK, the little acronym (short for Anna Wintour Okay) scrawled on each print page by our inimitable editor in chief. It is the ultimate sign of approval in this office and the wider fashion world.

Since the Air Jordans bear Anna Wintours seal of approval, their fashion credentials must be solid.

The Nike x Vogue collection will be available on 21st July.
