On Monday Billie Eilish took to Instagram to announce her sneaker collaboration with Nike Air Jordan.

The award-winning artist posted two pictures showing the two different designs which will be launched on September 27.

In the post the Bad Girl singer shares her excitement about the collaboration as well as a few details about the shoes.

'i am SO excited to finally share my two air jordan silhouettes with you!! i’ve always loved @jumpman23 and it was such an incredible and surreal experience getting to create these, especially in a sustainable fashion (100% vegan with over 20% recycled material).

In the first image, Eilish is seen wearing her signature baggy wear. An oversized black T-shirt and matching baggy shorts with a pair of bright green classic-styled sneakers and white socks.

In the second picture she opted for more muted and earthy tones, white baggy T-shirt and beige shorts, to show off the second design.

The 19-year-old performer was featured in a video that was shared on Instagram by an Air Jordan news source in which she expressed her passion for footwear and for Air Jordans.

She recalled: “The 15 has actually been my favourite Jordan since I knew what Jordans were. I begged for the 15's with the black and red whatever, and when I got them … I looked at them as if they were worth a million dollars.”

Her version of the 15s will come in a monochromatic tan colour while her Nike Air Jordan KO 1 design will be available in a bright green hue.

“This color is such a classic, stupid, little ‘old me’ thing, I guess. I really wanted to kind of have almost like an ode to myself … this was me, for a while.”

On the KO 1s she said: “[They are] the best shape with everything — with pants, with shorts, with dresses, with skirts … I love the way they make your legs look.”

The singer is a big advocate of sustainable fashion. She recently agreed to wear an Oscar de le Renta gown to the 2021 Met Gala on the condition that the label stop using fur.

“You can make cool s—t and you don’t have to be wasteful,” she said.

The shoes will launch first on store.billieeilish.com on 27 September, and on Nike SNKRS on 30 September 2021.
