One of the highlight of Air Jordan retro releases over the last year has been the brand’s “remastered” strategy, which helps restore classic sneakers to their original design. While this has come with price increases, the overall response has been positive, especially with Jordan Brand including O.G. details like the Nike Air branding. The Air Jordan V “Black Metallic” is getting the remastered treatment this summer, and these new photos show how well of a job Nike did on them.
We’re currently in the midst of Jordan Brand celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 1, and the Nike offshoot has big things planned past the end of this year. Announcing in a press release today, Jordan has many retro sneakers planned for Spring 2016, and they pay homage to critical junctures in Michael Jordan’s history.
