Jordan Brand has presented its Summer 2020 retro collection. Consisting of fresh takes on beloved Air Jordan silhouettes and re-releases of classics alike, this latest slate of offerings looks to weave together rich Jordan heritage with contemporary street style.

New standouts include an Air Jordan 1 “Tie Dye” and an Air Jordan 5 “Top 3.” The “Tie Dye” uses familiar black and white leather but differentiates itself by becoming the first AJ1 ever to add tie-dye prints, bold two-tone blue patterns that grace the overlays. It’s a women’s silhouette, but will be available in an extended size run. Meanwhile, the “Top 3” combines the Air Jordan 5’s three most iconic schemes — “Fire Red,” “Metallic” and “Grape,” — making for a three-headed homage to Air Jordan history.

A duo of prominent throwback styles are present as well: the Air Jordan 13 “Flint” and Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red.” Back for the first time since 2010, the “Flint” is arguably the most popular AJ13 colorway, and is re-created here with painstaking attention to detail. The “Fire Red” boasts original Nike Air detailing on its heel and a signature shimmering metallic tongue, details that are sure to delight Jordan purists.

Air Jordan 4s have a sizable moment in the spotlight too, thanks to a four-shoe “Metallic Pack” that uses glistening “Court Purple,” “Team Orange” “University Red” or “Pine Green” embellishments and trim on a crisp white base drawn from 2017’s “Pure Money.” A women’s AJ4 “Rasta” brings the offerings to five with gradient fades on the midfoot mesh and classic cement midsole details.

Rounding things off are an Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple,” Air Jordan 7 “Hare 2.0” and two versions of the Air Jordan 11 Low: a reversed “Concord” style and a “White Bred.” The “Court Purple” and “Hare 2.0” are kicking off the Summer 2020 collection with early April releases — the former nods to Michael Jordan‘s regal nature on the court, while the latter is an update to a beloved OG AJ7 that was accompanied by a famous commercial starring Bugs Bunny. Lastly, the women’s 11 Low “Reversed Concord” nods to an original Air Jordan 11 “Concord” design sketch while the “White Bred” combines a white “Concord” upper with the black and red midsole detailing of the “Bred.”

The Jordan Brand Summer 2020 Retro collection will begin rolling out with the European release of the Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple” on April 4, and continue over the forthcoming months on Nike SNKRS and the Nike webstore. Note that releases could well be delayed by the continued spread of the novel coronavirus, and check our Drops page for dates as they’re announced.
