One strategy that Jordan Brand will often implement in its footwear category is that it will take some of its most notable color schemes from its retro lineup and allow its inline releases to borrow them. It’s a playful way to repurpose a classic palette, and this forthcoming Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT “Hare” iteration does exactly that.
The makeup is an overt salute to the Air Jordan 7 “Hare” offering that’s inspired by Michael Jordan‘s on-screen relationship with Bugs Bunny. While unaffiliated with the Looney Tunes icon, the kicks translate his look through the uppers which feature crisp white leather paneling as well as buttery gray suede toe boxes and quarters. Vibrant pops of red also poke out through the throat, the ball-and-wings logos and the Zoom branding on the tongues. To further express its “Hare” mantra, the high-cut sneakers are ornamented with the same multi-colored tribal patterns as its muse on the tongues and insoles.
It’s unclear as to when these will officially drop, but Nike will more than likely be launching these in the coming months. Retail price will be the standard $140 USD.
