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.
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.
Last month, Jordan Brand debuted Blake Griffin’s new sneaker with a little help from an old frenemy, Marvin the Martian. Now, with a rumored “Marvin the Martian” Air Jordan VII Retro on the horizon, Jordan Brand is giving the villain some more shine with his own clothing collection.
As the world’s second-largest search engine, YouTube has evolved as a platform where hardcore hobbyists and casual enthusiasts of just about anything (video games, cosmetics, or even Disney toys) can become Internet celebrities with dedicated viewerships.
