Having earlier showcased the Air Jordan 5 “Red Suede” silhouette, we’re back this time with images for its “Game Royal” counterpart. Sporting a vibrant blue color scheme, the uppers feature a premium suede finish with a matching-hued mesh cage landing on the side region. Finishing off the retro classic is the 3M reflective tongue, translucent icy outsole and the subtle hits of black found on the midsole shark teeth pattern and rear side Jumpman logo. Retailing for $190 USD, look for these new Air Jordan models at participating Jordan Brand retailers come July.
Jordan Brand’s “Pantone” edition of the Air Jordan 7 is set to hit shelves, after being previewed within its summer lineup alongside the Air Jordan 13 Low “Navy.” The colorway pays homage to Michael Jordan’s alma mater of UNC thanks to the coloring on its upper. Its midsole and sole host white coloring which are complemented by a white Jumpman on its lateral side in addition to further branding on each tongue.
The Air Jordan 7 “Pantone” is slated to launch on April 29 for $190 USD.
Eleven years after the initial Defining Moments Pack (DMP) released with a duo of Air Jordan 6s and Air Jordan 11s, Jordan Brand will be revisiting the black, white and gold color palette for an Air Jordan 13/14 DMP set. Celebrating the Bulls’ ’98 championship and both signature styles MJ wore during the run, the black, white and gold DMP hues will also sport red accents.
The AJ13 gets treated to a white upper coupled with a gold midsole that transitions up the side quarter panel and is finished off with a ’98 hologram with MJ’s iconic “Last Shot.” The AJ14 gets an all-black treatment with gold accents on its Jumpman logo and outsole panel along with rich red accents on the rear heel. Both sneakers feature the phrase “THEY CAN’T WIN” “UNTIL WE QUIT” on the inside of the tongue, an ode to MJ and the Bulls dominance in the NBA as they won their sixth ring and second three-peat.
Coming with special packaging, the Air Jordan 13/14 DMP pack will release on June 14 in both adult and kids sizes.
Eye-catching teasers of the Air Jordan 5 “Fab Five” via social media have finally been followed up with official imagery. Spearheaded by Tinker Hatfield, the design commemorates one of the most unforgettable teams in college basketball history during the ’90s, the Michigan Wolverines. The silhouette is kicked off with a suede maize-colored upper resting atop of a black midsole hosting maize speckling. Black continues to be the contrast of its upper via its lacelock and tongue, which is highlighted by an embroidered “M” logo. The inside of each tongue displays special nods to the nostalgic team with “Hail To” and “The Victors” stitched respectively on the left and right tongues. The Air Jordan 5 “Fab Five” is concluded with a logo created by Hatfield reflecting the squad’s “five times” signal that they used frequently during games.
Unfortunately you won’t be able to add these to your personal collection as the Air Jordan 5 “Fab Five” will serve as a gift from Tinker Hatfield to the friends and family of Jordan Brand.
After bringing back the navy colorway of the silhouette for the first time since 1998, Jordan Brand is dropping yet another low-top rendition of the Air Jordan 13 this month. This time around, the kicks get a clean “Pure Platinum” look as an unofficial followup of sorts to the “Pure Money” Air Jordan 4. Here, light grey nubuck combines with tumbled white leather while all of the 13′s usual black cat-inspired details remain intact.
Look for the Air Jordan 13 Low “Pure Platinum” to hit shelves on May 20 for $175 USD and stay tuned for more 13 goodness this summer: the beloved “Chutney” colorway is making a comeback on June 10 while the silhouette will be joined by the 14 as part of a regal DMP release on June 14.
