Jordan Brand 2018 Holiday Preview

Jordan Brand 2018 Holiday Preview 105

This holiday season, Jordan Brand offers a selection of Flight Utility-inspired Air Jordan XXXIIIs, never-before-seen colorways of classic silhouettes and an icon straight from the vault. 

Air Jordan XXXIII

Following the initial October 18 launch of the Future Flight Air Jordan XXXIII, there will be two additional colorways that build on the shoe’s futuristic design this season.

Icons Collide

Michael Jordan’s footwear legacy always begins with the Air Jordans he wore on court, but his off-court looks have also had a profound effect on sneaker culture. This collection reimagines some of his best off-court sneaker moments through an Air Jordan lens.

Air Jordan VI Trainer SC II
Worn by MJ early in his career, the Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Trainer SC II is one of the most beloved heritage training shoes in Nike history. The Air Jordan VI shares the same release year, and in 2018 will apply one of its famous color schemes for the first time.

Air Jordan III Air Trainer I
Tinker Hatfield’s game-changing Nike Trainer 1, which revolutionized cross-training, introduced the world to Chlorphyll color schemes in 1988. For this holiday season, that silhouette will meet a Jordan icon, the Air Jordan III, for a marriage of two Hatfield classics.

Air Jordan VIII Air Raid II
“For outdoor use only” is how the Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Air Raid was advertised when it debuted. The Air Raid’s signature cross-strap design later informed the direction of the Air Jordan VIII — fittingly this AJVIII pays homage to its forbearer.

 

Air Jordan X Air Huarache Lite
Both the Air Jordan X and Nike Huarache Lite are known for their unique designs and unmatched comfort. The common denominator is legendary designer Tinker Hatfield, who is credited for both.

From the Vault

Air Jordan XVIII OG
Capping off its 15-year anniversary, the Air Jordan XVIII returns in its original Black and Sport Royal colorway for the first time, equipped with original tooling and a signature soft suede upper.

New Premium

Air Jordan I High Rookie of the Year
The AJI High Golden Harvest and black colorway pays homage to MJ’s historic rookie season and takes inspiration from his look the day he accepted the ROY award. Highlights include premium leather and detached collar flaps that display his rookie season statistics and a quote from his acceptance speech. The AJI High Rookie of the Year will release in unisex sizing.

 

Air Jordan I High A Star is Born
This AJI High colorway remembers one of MJ’s first magazine covers as a professional. The “A Star is Born” declaration made by its publishers is embossed on the inside of the detached collar flaps.

Air Jordan XI Platinum Tint
The Air Jordan XI has become synonymous with special moments on and off the court. The Platinum Tint AJXI continues that legacy with an elegant swap of patent leather for soft buck.

The 2018 Jordan Brand holiday collection will be available on SNKRS, nike.com and select retailers.
