As summertime continues to enliven the northern hemisphere, Jordan Brand has put together a preview of what to expect from its retro offerings for the fall. Per usual, the Air Jordan 1 High OG, 1 Low OG, 2, 2 Low are present with contributions from the AJ3, 4, 5, 8, 12 and 13 as well. A key element to this season’s collection is the celebration of the Air Jordan 3’s 35th anniversary, with looks such as the iconic “Black Cement” appearing on the Air Jordan 2 and the arrival of the Air Jordan 3 “Palomino.” Note that many of the included looks in the preview have already released and have been excluded from this round-up.
Taking it from the top, the Air Jordan 1 High OG is entering the mix with a dark brown “Palomino” and a women’s-exclusive “Praline” that is inspired by handbags. As for its low-top counterpart, a clean “Atmosphere Grey” is set to grace the silhouette with the revered “Black Toe” treatment finally returning to the shoe as well. As mentioned, the brand has just revealed the AJ3’s famous “Black Cement” presentation on the Air Jordan 2 alongside a “Soft Pink” version of the shoe. Pivoting to its low version, “Sky J Orange” offers a finish that is inspired by the Chicago skyline spotted in the background of Michael Jordan’s original Jumpman image.
Looking to the Air Jordan 4, the recently-surfaced “Red Cement” is a past-meets-present iteration of the cement series. Celebrating the immortalization of women in statues, the “Frozen Moments” pair features prominent chrome detailing on the AJ4. Looking back to 2006, the Air Jordan 5 “Burgundy” blends dark red suede with semi-translucent blue detailing and silver accents. Another pair set to return this year is the “Playoffs” version of the Air Jordan 8, commemorating the silhouette’s 30th anniversary.
Wrapping things up, the Air Jordan 12 “Field Purple” takes on a Los Angeles Lakers-esque presentation with purple and black dominating the upper and gold shimmering at the eyestays and heel. Lastly, the Air Jordan 13 “Wolf Grey” looks to the silhouette’s 25th anniversary and serves as a flip to the “Neutral Grey” colorway from 2005.
Enjoy a preview of the 14 colorways above as pairs such as the Air Jordan 3 “Palomino” are set to release as early as this week via Nike SNKRS. For more release details, be sure to check out our individual coverage of each look.
