This spring, Jordan Brand reimagines the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 13 with new interpretations of classic colourways and reaches into the vault for previously-unreleased styles. In addition, special attention is granted to the Air Jordan 10, which celebrates its 23rd year in 2018.
AIR JORDAN 1 – BRED TOE
Release Date: 24 February 2018
Using an unmistakable combination of colours, this reinterpretation of the Air Jordan I “Bred” delivers a new colourway with an OG feel. It is highlighted by soft tumbled leather features and is accentuated by the addition of Summit White.
AIR JORDAN 1 – GAME ROYAL
Release Date: March 2018
Following the blueprint set on the classic Chicago colourway 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.
AIR JORDAN 9 – BRED
Release Date: 10 March 2018
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 colourway is punctuated by its red accents.
AIR JORDAN 10 – COOL GREY
Release Date: 27 January 2018
This version of the Air Jordan 10 adds colour and context to the stories scripted on its outsole. The AJ 10 outsole famously lists Michael Jordan’s early career achievements, and now, those words come to life by taking on the team colours of his opponents during those milestones, while the upper adopts Cool Grey for the second time in AJ 10 history.
AIR JORDAN 10 – I’M BACK
Release Date: 18 March 2018
Michael Jordan was never supposed to play in the Air Jordan 10. 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 AJ 10 comes dressed in a clean white and black colourway with “3.8.95” and “I’m Back” stitched in Infrared23 on the left and right heel tabs, respectively.
AIR JORDAN 13 – BLACK/OLIVE
Made famous on the Air Jordan 9, the “Olive” colourway of the 13swaps the model’s traditional tumbled leather upper for an all-suede construction. From the olive and black colour blocking to the red accents on the tongue and outsole, the shoe then takes the famed Jordan makeup at every detail.
AIR JORDAN 13 – HYPER ROYAL
Release Date: 03 March 2018
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 colourway, this version swaps out red for Hyper Royal while maintaining details like a tumbled leather upper and suede midsole.
AIR JORDAN 18 – SPORT ROYAL
Release Date: 22 January 2018
Retroing solo for the first time, the AJ 18 comes dressed in white, metallic silver and Sport Royal. The shoe’s original tooling remains, but the leather has been upgraded.
