Apart from this clever, customizable tongue, each is built from a cornucopia of different suedes and meshes. Thick and plush, the suede selected draws from Birkenstock
sandals while the mesh is fully traditional for a nod to old-school ’80s kicks. “Guava Ice” and “Off Noir” alike continue the “Bred/Storm Blue” and “Neutral Grey/Black Toe” looks of the aforementioned Air Jordan 1
s by mixing black, white red and blue — but use muted versions of all four colors for an alternate look. Translucent “wings” bring in a touch of conceptual style, and yellowed midsoles round the look off.
Elsewhere, the Zoom ‘92 takes on a “Guava Ice” colorway and combines elements of the Air Jordan 7
, Air Max 180
and Air Force 5 for a hybrid look that’s equal parts past and present. The Delta Mid is a high-cut version of the Delta
and Delta SP
silhouettes that debuted earlier this year
. It’s dressed in “Off Noir” with a mesh and suede upper that features red and blue pops towards the heel. Seamless interiors and thick foam tongues provide comfort, and a React midsole finalizes the look.
An official release date for the Union x Jordan Brand 2020 footwear collection has yet to be announced, but a countdown clock on the Union webstore
indicates an August 29 drop. Retail prices are forthcoming as well.
