Jordan Brand is set to release the Air Jordan OG in a new “Coconut Milk” colorway with orange basketball leather accents. Originally released in 1998, the Air Jordan OG was the first Jordan Brand sneaker designed exclusively for women. It was a large part of the Jumpman’s 2020 release slate as well, dropping in several in-line colorways while also serving as the centerpiece of a Melody Ehsani collaboration. However, this “Coconut Milk” makeup marks the AJ OG’s 2021 debut.
The Air Jordan OG’s most notable piece is its midfoot, on which sits two overlays — one done up in shaggy tan suede with Air Jordan 13-style pockmarks, the other with pebbled orange basketball leather — rimmed with thick black trim. Another thickly-trimmed overlay with a Jumpman graphic sits on the heel, and the upper’s “Coconut Milk” base layer is made of a smooth tan suede.
Further branding is present on the tongue, and a crown-like graphic graces the lower half of the heel. Midsoles are made from white EVA foam and add a debossed Jumpman graphic. Last but not least, outsoles take on an orange tone that matches the aforementioned basketball leather on the upper.
