Jordan Brand has officially presented its retro lineup for Fall 2021. Following up on its impressive run of Spring offerings, MJ’s popular sportswear imprint has readied 14 new installments for the market, many of which are modernized variations of signature silhouettes such as the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 5 and more while one of is a revival from 1996 — the Air Jordan 11 Low IE.

There’s been zero signs of slowing down for the Air Jordan 1 in recent memory, and that will remain for the leaf-changing season as four fresh makeups are set to land into our midst. First on the list is the “Pollen” makeup whose upper half that alternates between yellow and black smooth leathers evokes memories of the highly regarded “Wu Tang” Dunks. Next is the “Electro Orange” pair, a three-toned makeup that bears white, black and orange color-blocking that immediately makes you think of the Jordan 1‘s famed “Shattered Backboard” lineage. Other iterations in the capsule include that of the Air Jordan 1 High “Seafoam” for the ladies and a new iteration that has a perforated collar which allows wearers to switch the shoe from a high-top to a low top.

The Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 6 each show face in this new capsule. For the AJ3, a “Racer Blue” colorway that is presented with classical cement print and Jumpman-branded heels is in preparation to hit the shelves. An Air Jordan 4 that’s geared towards the ladies and inspired by the various shades of makeup is tossed into the mix. The branding on the tongues are electroplated and nods to the mirrors that are used in makeup palettes. The Air Jordan 5 in this group hones in on remixing the shoe’s traditional uppers. Leather overlays and reflective tongues are retained, but the kicks’ shoe’s collar, quarter panel and tongue bottoms are now lined with a textile mesh. Continuing the 30th year anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, the Beaverton-based company is launching two more iterations for sneaker aficionados across the world. The first is a darker-toned variant that is heavily influenced by iconic Air Jordan VII “Bordeaux”, while the second ladies-focused option is inspired by gilded earrings and comes packaged with golden hoops on the shoe’s lace toggles.

Winding down to the last set of styles in the assemblage, the Air Jordan 11 Low IE makes a glorious return, and modern interpretations of the Air Jordan 12, 13 and 14 are set to drop. The former is a call back to the 1996 playoffs and comes styled in its OG black and red schemes. A duo of Air Jordan 12s are involved, the first arriving with a muted palette and NikeGrind outsoles while the latter sports classic Bulls colors with smooth white leather uppers and “Metallic Red”. The Air Jordan 13 that’s lined up is executed with OG materials of leather uppers and textile tongue bottoms, and comes treated with a familiar “Obsidian” theme. Last but not least, an Air Jordan 14 Low IE that is devised with a lipstick-like aesthetic is present. Black leather and mesh uppers are complemented by bold red collars and throats to truly give off a cosmetic effect.

Jordan Brand’s Fall 2021 retro collection will begin dropping out on Nike SNKRS and at retailers like Foot Locker in the coming months. Specific launch dates have not been confirmed as of yet.
