For Summer 2019, Jordan Brand has a wide array of must-have sneaker silhouettes on tap. From old favorites to new editions, the sportswear behemoth has teased plenty of forthcoming drops, accompanied by the official release dates.
Just in time for the Air Jordan 14‘s 20th anniversary, two new editions of the lavish basketball sneaker have arrived. Inspired by Michael Jordan‘s love of luxury sports cars, the first iteration is offered in the classic white/red colorway, retaining the premium leather and signature midfoot stitching of the OG model, with hangtags and packaging to match. The second model sports a new makeup, meshing together University Gold and Red with black accents, sacrificing the detailing on the upper for a clean tumbled leather.
This summer also sees the launch of the Air Jordan 13 “Cap and Gown,” following last year’s AJ11 in honoring new grads with patent black uppers. Elsewhere, the 23rd anniversary of Ray Allen Milwaukee Bucks draft is celebrated with a hybrid Air Jordan 7 that fuses together two of Allen’s Player Edition colorways.
Jordan himself also receives some love, with the Reflections of a Champion Collection. The Air Jordan 6, 7 and 8 boast new reflective grey uppers, elevating the silhouettes that Jordan wore during his first three championships. Finally, the Air Jordan 4 is given a lightweight Flyknit makeover ideal for the hot summer weather, surfacing in four tonal colorways: yellow, blue, red and orange.
