Jordan Brand Unveils Select Spring 17 Air Jordan Silhouettes

Throughout spring 2017, Jordan Brand will celebrate its heritage by introducing a series of collections paying homage to the brand’s legacy of pushing the boundaries of style both on and off the court.

Take Flight

Building off themes of flight that run strong throughout the Jordan Brand’s design history, this collection, which includes three shoes, takes cues from military bomber jackets and fighter planes.

Incorporating a sequoia green color way inspired by the Air Jordan IX Olive, the Air Jordan VIII features pops of max orange. Additionally, the shoe is given an elevated construction and for the first time integrates neoprene materials in the upper.
