Ahead of his sophomore season in the NBA, Zion Williamson is slated to add another New Orleans-inspired iteration to his hoops repertoire this month: the Air Jordan 35 “Bayou Boys”. This installment arrives as a follow-up to the Air Jordan 34 “Bayou Boys”, an alligator skin-covered makeup that sold out instantly when it hit the market mid-March of this year.

Design-wise, this court-ready offering carries over the ethos reflective of Louisiana’s wetlands. Green accents attract the most attention here and affix to the exaggerated Eclipse plates in a swamp-inspired hue, while the mid-foot underlays, flecked laces and branded insignias atop the tongues and heel tabs deviate with a slimy shade. Additional murky elements can be found along the insoles which have been treated with marsh-esque patterns.

Forefoot and heel overlays are executed with that of white backdrops and cracked textures, and arrive color-blocked with that of stark black ankle collars, tongues and mid-foot netting, as well as iridescent paneling just below the heightened set of lace loops. Riding down underneath, the midsoles are sheathed with an angelic skin, and complemented with a chevron-patterned outsole painted with gum finishes.

Moreover, this hardwood-ready rendition comes packaged with “Bayou Boys” branding embroidered onto the medial sides of the heel tab, as well as in printed fashion on the interior of its shoe box flaps.

Peep an in-depth look at the pair right and its here, expect these to drop via Nike China come November 20th for ¥1499 (approx. $228.49 USD). A stateside launch has yet to be confirmed by Nike.

Elsewhere in the world of footwear, the Nike Air Max Plus 2 has been revealed in a versatile “Smoke Grey” colorway.
