Jordan Fall Footwear

Jordan Brand already has a head start on the upcoming Fall season. Continuing the lineage of the Air Jordan signature series, some of the most notable models receive an off-court makeover. Jordan heads will be provided with the Air Jordan 1, 2, 8, 11 and 13, all exuding inspiration from MJ’s casual style.

Both the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 2 become rebuilt thanks to premium materials on each respective upper. Premium tumbled leather makes its way onto the paneling of MJ’s first signature sneaker while the GOAT’s second model continues the previously launched “Decon” iteration in black, navy or sail colorway options. The aforementioned Air Jordan 1 will don all-black on its upper with subtle red detailing on its tongue labeling, which was previously teased back in May.

Next in line is the Air Jordan 8. Set to drop in two new colorways, the model pays homage to highly notable colorways of the past: “Cement” and “Cool Grey.” Each display suede on their mid-foot straps while a special “1993″ hit makes its way on each heel tab.

The Air Jordan 4′s “Fire Red” color scheme makes its way onto the Air Jordan 11 Low IE. Only seen as a sample worn by Michael Jordan in 1996, MJ never actually played in this model. It’s white base is complemented by subtle black on its tongue logo and sock lining while “Fire Red” makes its way around the silhouette and on its outsole.

Closing out the range is the Air Jordan 13 “History of Flight.” Initially unveiled back in 2009, this special edition was accompanied by the rest of Jordan’s signatures in order to celebrate the line’s 25th anniversary. Up until now the white-based 13 could only be admired from a distance behind glass. Soon, you’ll be able to add it to your own collection in celebration of the Air Jordan 13′s twenty-year anniversary.

Take a look at the images above of Jordan Brand’s upcoming fall footwear offering and stay tuned for concrete release info for each.

Jordan x Chinese New Year

We are Sure you have seen the Air Jordan 12 in a black and white colorway celebrating 2017′s Chinese New Year, but Jordan Brand has another colorway of the 12 up its sleeve for the occasion. Paired together in a pack, the second colorway is a neutral beige and gold makeup. Inspired by Chinese woven bamboo, the shoe’s tongue is embroidered with the Chinese words “er shi,” meaning 20, celebrating Jordan Brand’s 20th anniversary in the Chinese market. Additionally, the pack includes an Air Jordan XXXI equipped with Flyweave and Flightspeed technology. Available in limited quantities, the Chinese New Year pack will be available in Hong Kong on December 25, and online on January 7.

Three Stripes

Pairing knit uppers with the multicolor effect is a surefire recipe for sneaker success, so it comes as no surprise that adidas has now given its new Ultra Boost ST the rainbow treatment. Fresh off the release of its similarly-executed “Year of the Monkey” Ultra Boost, the Three Stripes’ latest running silhouette features a primarily tonal blue color scheme accented by polychromatic threading near the toebox. The luxurious stability shoe’s more performance-related features, meanwhile, include a plush-but-supportive Boost-cushioned midsole, adaptive Primeknit upper and STRETCHWEB outsole, which provides the Ultra Boost ST with a smooth, yet stable ride. Look for the adidas Ultra Boost ST “Multicolor” now at select adidas retailers worldwide.

Mystery Grey

Multicolored Primeknit debuted with the Samba Primeknit back in 2014 and now the look has come to the beloved Ultra Boost in honor of the Chinese New Year. Hot on the heels of the limited edition “Mystery Grey” colorway, the “Year of the Monkey” look celebrates the occasion with special tongue branding and bright red lining as a predominately navy upper is accompanied by a multicolored knit that mimics the look of a mudguard. As expected, the fan-favorite Boost midsole and Continental rubber outsole finish things off.
Though sold out online, the special Ultra Boosts can be found now at select Three Stripes stockists.

Kentucky Blue

In the midst of coaching the Toronto team during the NBA’s All-Star games and receiving the keys to his hometown, Drake is undoubtedly having an event-filled weekend. Nevertheless, he took to Instagram to unveil a pair of OVO x Air Jordan 8 retro sneakers in a Kentucky blue colorway. The timing doesn’t seem coincidental as Jordan Brand dropped the Retro 10 “OVO” today, alongside an apparel collection. While there’s no word yet on whether these are player exclusives, we’re hoping more information will be revealed soon.
