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.
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.
The Air Jordan V takes design cues from a P51 flight bomber jacket. The leather wrapped midsole, a new construction technique to the Air Jordan V, beautifully grounds the sequoia green silhouette and is balanced by premium materials throughout the upper.
Originally released in 1999, the Air Jordan XV OG was inspired by a stealth fighter plane. The silhouette returns with premium materials and construction.
