The OG Air Jordan XI Low IE Is Back

June 17, 2021 - This fall’s Air Jordan retro preview is headlined by the return of the OG Air Jordan XI Low IE in red and black, a variation renowned for its seasonal adaptation through material updates — and for its appearance during the ’96 playoffs. Similarly, four women’s exclusive styles for this season feature revised color palettes and material choices for new, energized interpretations of classic models.

Air Jordan XI Low IE
A final chapter of the 25th anniversary of the Air Jordan XI, the OG black and red Air Jordan XI Low IE returns, re-engineered to the exact 1995 specs. The model features a genuine leather and mesh upper, molded sock liner and an exposed carbon fiber shank plate contrasted by the recognizable herringbone rubber outsole. The shoe arrives in OG packaging.

Women’s Air Jordan I Hi OG
Inspired by the calming colors of sage, this women’s exclusive style features soft, tumbled leather with premium nubuck overlays. Completing the look is a subtle, two-toned lace inspired by the string used to tie bundles of sage. The shoe also comes with a hangtag and two extra sets of laces.

Women’s Air Jordan IV
This women’s exclusive style takes inspiration from varying neutral shades of makeup. This model is highlighted by buttery soft nubuck overlays and burnished leather meant to age and sheen naturally with time. The shoe also features transparent TPU wings and lace locks and is topped off by metallic, electroplated Jumpman branding on the tongue, reminiscent of the mirrors used in makeup palettes.  

Women’s Air Jordan VI
Taking inspiration from gold earrings, this women’s exclusive adds interconnected gold hoops that are attached to the shoe’s Air Jordan VI lace toggle. Materials on this model include white medium grain tumbled leather with gold underlays, a semi-gloss lining and a milky-white translucent rubber outsole.

Women’s Air Jordan XIV Low
The women’s exclusive style features a color palette inspired by red lipstick. Materials like matte nubuck and suede leather provide the cosmetic base against metallic silver accents, while OG elements include the tongue and the laces with frosted-platinum aglets. The writing on the sockliner is modeled after strokes of lipstick; the shoe arrives in lipstick-stained tissue paper.

Air Jordan I HI OG
Employing a fresh, seasonal color scheme, this Air Jordan I HI OG features a genuine black leather upper with premium Pollen leather overlays and detailing atop a white midsole and a Pollen rubber outsole. The shoe comes with new packaging and will be available in full family and extended women's sizing.

Air Jordan I HI OG
This new take on the Air Jordan I HI OG involves crafted leather and nubuck overlays with hits of reflective silver throughout. With a perforated collar, this model can be customized both into a high or low top. Applying a fresh color scheme to both the shoe and packaging, this release comes in full family and extended sizing for women.

Air Jordan I HI OG
Another seasonal iteration of the Air Jordan I HI OG, this fall model uses an Electro Orange, black and white color scheme with updated color blocking. Made with premium, genuine leather, the shoe is highlighted by a metallic finish on the collar. The shoe also releases in full family and extended sizing for women.

Air Jordan III Retro
Applying a familiar color and color-blocking scheme, this Air Jordan III Retro comes with a subtle material twist. The shoe features premium leather and a new reflective material on the iconic elephant print on the heel and toe. This model, which will come in new packaging, releases in full-family sizing.

Air Jordan V Retro
This fresh spin on the Air Jordan V applies a mixture of materials from genuine leathers to exposed foam and textiles. The shoe’s collar, quarter panel and tongue bottom are layered with textile mesh, while the tongue maintains its OG reflective finish. The model is accented by black-tinted eyelets and a transparent lace lock and is completed by a matte-finished midsole and a muslin-tinted rubber outsole.  

Air Jordan VI
Continuing the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan VI, this new iteration of the Retro model is inspired by the iconic Air Jordan VII Bordeaux colorway. True to the Air Jordan VI’s original specs, this model employs a genuine nubuck upper with a Bordeaux-printed translucent tongue and sock liner. Coming in familiar packaging with a fresh color twist, this shoe releases in Men’s and GS sizing.

Air Jordan XII Retro
Putting a new, clean twist on the Air Jordan XII, this model applies hits of metallic red throughout an all-white upper and midsole. The shoe features genuine leather, complemented by the OG faux-lizard print mudguard. This offering comes with OG packaging and will release in full-family sizing.

Air Jordan XII
The model combines a Nike Grind outsole, made with at least 3% Nike Grind, with a ballistic mesh tongue. The shoe also applies genuine leather to the upper and suede to the midsole atop the faux-lizard print mudguard. The shoe releases in full-family sizing.

Air Jordan XIII Retro
This retro combines a familiar Obsidian colorway with classic, OG materials, true to form with a leather upper, textile tongue bottom and cat-eye hologram. This model arrives in OG packaging and in full-family sizing.
