As Jordan Brand‘s first-ever fusion model, the Dub Zero made waves when it debuted in 2005, and now it’s back in an original “Varsity Red” colorway. Combining bits and pieces of classic Air Jordans with a recognizable white/red/black color scheme and plenty of lasered detailing, this Dub Zero is a nod to a bygone era in sneakers — and will surely stoke fond memories for any sneaker lover who grew up on the ’00s.

Each piece of the Dub Zero is a tribute to a memorable Jordan model. The name and aforementioned laser details are a clear acknowledgement of the Air Jordan 20, another silhouette that debuted in 2005. Red, grey and white midsoles are borrowed from the Air Jordan 4, while plastic heel tabs come over from the Air Jordan 6. Apart from the laser accents, the design’s most notable piece is its black patent leather toebox, a style that’s easily recognizable from the Air Jordan 11.

“TWO3” text running down the tongue is pulled from the Air Jordan 12, and the woven leather found on the heel is borrowed from the Air Jordan 15. Lastly, the upper’s overall shape offers shades of the Air Jordan 13. Combined with the Chicago Bulls-esque hues, this lifestyle hybrid is a still-thoughtful nod to some of the most notable signature models that Tinker Hatfield designed for Michael Jordan.

These true-to-2005 Dub Zeros are available now at the Nike webstore for $150 USD.

It may not be represented on the Dub Zero, but the Air Jordan 5 made a lot of noise at Paris Fashion Week thanks to a new Off-White™ iteration created by Virgil Abloh.
