This spring, Jordan Brand reimagines the Air Jordan I and Air Jordan XIII with new interpretations of classic colorways and reaches into the vault for previously-unreleased styles. In addition, special attention is granted to the Air Jordan X, which celebrates its 23rd year in 2018.
CLASSIC COLORWAYS REIMAGINED
Air Jordan XIII Olive
Made famous on the Air Jordan IX, the “Olive” colorway of the XIII swaps the model’s traditoinal tumbled leather upper for an all-suede construction. From the olive and black color blocking to the red accents on the tongue and outsole, the shoe then takes the famed Jordan makeup at every detail.
Air Jordan I Bred Toe
Using an unmistakable combination of colors, this reinterpretation of the Air Jordan I “Bred” delivers a new colorway with an OG feel. It is highlighted by soft tumbled leather features, and is accentuated by the addition of Summit White.
Air Jordan 1 Alternate Black/Game Royal
Following the blueprint set on the classic Chicago colorway of the AJ1, this makeup complements the Game Royal and white dominated upper with black details, including the tongue, sock liner, Swoosh and Wings logo.
FROM THE VAULT
Air Jordan XVIII OG
Retroing solo for the first time, the AJ XVIII comes dressed in white, metallic silver and Sport Royal. The shoe’s original tooling remains, but the leather has been upgraded.
Air Jordan XIII White/Hyper Royal/Black
Previously reserved only for Jordan Brand family members, the white, Hyper Royal, and black Air Jordan XIII comes out of the vault for its first ever public release. A spinoff of an OG colorway, this version swaps out red for Hyper Royal while maintaining details like a tumbled leather upper and suede midsole.
Air Jordan IX Black/University Red
Another PE from the Jordan Brand family vault, the black and University Red IX is highlighted by patent leather detailing on the upper. This sleek colorway is punctuated by its red accents.
XXIII Years of X
Air Jordan X Cool Grey
This version of the Air Jordan X adds color and context to the stories scripted on its outsole. The AJX outsole famously lists Michael Jordan’s early career achievements, and now, those words come to life by taking on the team colors of his opponents during those milestones, while the upper adopts Cool Grey for the second time in AJX history.
Air Jordan X “I’m Back”
Michael Jordan was never supposed to play in the Air Jordan X. In fact, its outsole design listed his career achievements as a tribute to the recently retired (at the time) superstar. That all changed on March 18, 1995 with a fax reading a straight-to-the-point declaration: “I’m Back.” Honoring that moment, this AJX comes dressed in a clean white and black colorway with “3.18.95” and “I’m Back” stitched in Infrared23 on the left and right heel tabs, respectively.
