Air Jordan 13 "Playoffs" Set to Return This Spring/Summer
The Air Jordan 13 silhouette is set to take over 2017 by adding its “Playoff” colorway to this year’s releases. The familiar shoes’ black base is complemented by tumbled leather throughout the upper and is contrasted by white along its paw-like midsole. You’ll also find True Red coloring on the outsole and Jumpman logo on the tongue for a subtle touch. The colorway is finished with a jewel located on the lateral side of each shoe, inspired by a cat’s eye.
The Air Jordan 13 “Playoffs” is expected to hit European retailers on June 20 for approximately $190 USD with a stateside launch assumed to follow.
A Closer Look at the Air Jordan 11 Low "University Blue”
First previewing the re-release of the Air Jordan 11 Low “University Blue” colorway late last year, we’re back this time with a closer look at this retro classic. First breaking out onto the scene in 2001 featuring a “Columbia Blue” tonal palette, the new design pays homage to His Airness’ alma mater with this UNC—inspired theme. While the uppers feature a clean white/”University Blue” mixture, the sole unit takes on a similar motif mixing in white with a blue-tinged translucent rubber outer. The new design of the Air Jordan 11 Low will retail for $175 USD and is expected to hit participating retailers as of April 15.
The Air Jordan 1 Gets Covered in Grey Suede
Earlier this month, the high-top Air Jordan 1 surfaced in monochromatic red and grey colorways — for kids. Thankfully, the red pair surfaced in adult sizing just a few short days later along with a corresponding blue pair to boot. The grey pair, however, was nowhere to found. Now, though, it looks like the grey kicks will indeed drop in larger sizes as Jordan Brand has unveiled the men’s take on the design. Arguably the best of the bunch, the kicks come decked out in grey suede, coupling the construction with matching laces and a nylon tongue. The only real “drawback” here is that the high-tops don’t come in OG form — Jumpman branding appears in place of the original “Nike Air” insignia.
Nonetheless, Jordan fans can expect the Air Jordan 1 High “Wolf Grey” to land at select spots on April 20 for $140 USD.
The Air Jordan 5 Premium Receives A "Pure Platinum" Upgrade
Air Jordan 13 Navy Returns This Summer After Two Decades
Jordan Brand’s 2017 summer lineup will add a retro of the navy Air Jordan 13 alongside all-new University Blue Air Jordan 7s, pure platinum Air Jordan 5s, and a pair of pastel blue and pink Air Jordan 1 Decons to a group that already includes University Blue 11s, Baron 11s and Chutney 13s. The navy 13s, which have University Blue accents on the Jumpman logos on the tongue, will be the first time the colorway has been retroed since its 1998 debut. Originally showcased in 2010 at the World Basketball Festival, the new 7s will hit retail shops for the first time in a University Blue colorway that the brand is focused on promoting in 2017. Premium leather was chosen to encase the pure platinum 5s which mirror the construction and quality on the “Take Flight” model. Finally, a duo of new models that draw inspiration from the original Air Jordan 1 model will offer a canvas upper for a daily lifestyle look.
The New Air Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 Is a Sleek Upgrade to the Original
The original Air Jordan Ultra.Fly made its debut exactly one year ago. Today, Jordan Brand gives the head-turning basketball shoe a sleek sequel for the spring season. The Air Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 strips back the OG’s elaborate caged upper and replaces it with a modern sock-like mesh construction. Its streamlined upper is topped off by a curled collar (reminiscent of the Air Jordan 15) and is anchored by a rippled Zoom Air midsole for added texture. The all-white makeup sees a coated mudguard and hits of black on the collar lining, lace eyelets, Jumpman branding and outsole for some contrast to the tonal colorway.
You can find the new Air Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 for CHF 159.90 (approximately $160 USD) at Titolo now.
