Jordan Brand is well prepped for Spring 2018 with a selection of models that have received makeovers in addition to some long-awaited returns. Seemingly stealing the show, the Air Jordan 1 will resurface in a new “Bred Toe” and “Alternate” (Black/Game Royal) options. The former is a reinterpretation of the iconic “Bred” and “Black Toe” versions while the latter is a homage to the “Royal” colorway. Both share premium tumbled leather material and traditional detailing such as its Swoosh and “WINGS” logo.
The Air Jordan 13 will also make its way back to retailers with new colorway choices of “Olive” and “Hyper Royal.” Its “Olive” iteration takes inspiration from the popular colorway used on the Air Jordan 9 by trading the expected tumbled leather for an all-suede upper. Red detailing is incorporated on its tongue and sole unit for the final detailing as the AJ 13’s signature hologram returns as an homage to MJ’s “Black Cat” nickname. Moving onto the “Hyper Royal” edition, the colorway will see its first public launch as it swaps the expected red coloring for the striking shade of blue throughout.
Special editions of the Air Jordan 10 are also set to be a part of the Spring 2018 lineup. A “Cool Grey” colorway will kick things off, marking the second time the theme has been shared on the model. This time around its monochromatic upper is complemented by a selection of colors paying homage to the teams Michael Jordan faced while achieving some of his biggest accomplishments. Its “I’m Back” version remembers another unforgettable moment in MJ’s career as he officially returned from a short retirement. This edition honors Jordan officially announcing his comeback with the phrase “I’m Back” on its left heel tab while “3.8.95” is shared on the right as a nod to the date when MJ faxed his return announcement. The upper is dominated in white coloring while black serves as the perfect contrast to its lacing system, tongue and inner lining.
A “Black/University Red” colorway of the Air Jordan 9 joins the offering making its way out of the Jordan Brand family vault. The PE colorway hosts leather and patent leather detailing throughout while its black upper sees “University Red” detailing on the tongue, heel and midsole.
Last but not least, the Air Jordan 18 makes its long-awaited return. Marking its first standalone retro, its “Sport Royal” colorway sees an upgrade to its leather with “Metallic Silver” detailing and a white-based upper. Branding is found on its lace cover and its heel as its signature wings make their way back to each lateral and medial side.
