Michael Jordan won’t be rounding the bases anytime soon, but he’s finally getting the call up to the majors.
The story of flight in the Air Jordan line will be told through several iterations of retros throughout the remainder of the year. In September, a camo-printed Air Jordan 5 will make its retail debut, inspired by the model’s fighter jet design origin. Joining it will be a similar make-up of the Air Jordan 1 High.
Those who stopped by PSNY’s 330 Hudson pop-up shop in New York today caught the first glimpse of the label’s unreleased “Wheat” Air Jordan 12 collaboration. It didn’t take too long to get an answer to the burning question.
It appears as though Jordan Brand is looking to start the new year off with a bang as we have our first look at the Air Jordan 4 Retro “Royalty” that is currently scheduled to release in January of 2017.
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.
