UPDATE (June 16, 2020): Hiroshi Fujiwara has taken to his Instagram once again to tease the same unreleased Jordan Brand silhouette, and has also revealed its name: the Air Cadence. A lifestyle-geared design in the same vein as other modern casual styles like the Delta SP, the Cadence blends classic materials with advanced, conceptual construction.

Fujiwara’s inaugural image gave a look at the lateral side and overall shape of the new model, but his latest batch of shots hone in on the heel and collar details. Of special note is the fragment design logo on the collar and the technical tooling code on the midsole. Cut-out tongues feature asymmetrical tags with a repeating Jumpman print, and although most of the shoe is grey navy blue gets worked in on the midfoot tags, heel tabs and tongue liners. What appears to be an Air Max unit is embedded in the heel as well, with the surrounding foam reaching far over its borders to provide a cavernous look.

Official release details have yet to be unveiled, but see the shots above and the original story below — and stay tuned for more info as it’s made available.


ORIGINAL STORY (May 28, 2020): Hiroshi Fujiwara has teased plenty of collaborative shoes in recent times, from his Nike Air Max 1 “The Ten” sample to a pair of Air Jordan 3s, and now the Japanese designer has shown a new fragment design x Jordan Brand offering.

The pair looks similar to a Jordan Delta but is made from different materials than those typically found on this newer silhouette. Its upper sports a combination of grey mesh and dark grey suede, as well as cream mesh for the tongue. Elsewhere we see a dark grey overlay on the toe box, as well as a large, partly-hidden fragment design lightning bolt logo in white on the rear-quarter towards the heel.

Other Jordan Delta design cues come in form of its rear heel component that is perforated, mimicking the circular pattern found on a usual pair, as well as the structure of its side panel. A small Jordan tag appears towards the rear-quarter, while fragment design branding graces the sole unit.

The sole unit itself is unlike the Jordan Delta as it incorporates an Air bubble unit and “AIR” branding engraved into the rear of the heel. Take a look at the unknown fragment design x Jordan Brand sneaker in Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Instagram post below.

In case you missed it, here’s a closer look at Travis Scott’s upcoming Nike Air Max 270 “Cactus Trail.”
