Jordan Brand has barely disclosed anything about potential Air Jordan releases 2017, which is understandable considering that the present year is not even halfway through. Hence, there are many sneakers that the Jumpman could potentially bring back. Since February 2016 already passed and February 7, 2017 will mark the 30th anniversary of the 1987 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, so one particular sneaker that should definitely return is the Air Jordan 2 “Made In Italy.” It cannot really be confirmed whether this sneaker will actually make its comeback, but this much is certain that the Air Jordan 15 is scheduled to make a comeback next year.
Ever since mid-March of this year, rumors had begun circulating that the Air Jordan 15 would be returning in Spring 2017. Instagram user @zsneakerheadz even shared a photo of next year’s Air Jordan 15 iteration. From the looks of it, it is quite possibly the remastered version of the “Black/Varsity Red” colorway dubbed “Stealth,” which Jordan Brand had dropped back on November 15, 2007. If it is indeed the same sneaker, it is arriving at retailers once again after nine years. However, apparently it may not be the only Air Jordan 15 that the Jumpman has planned for next year.
Apart from the abovementioned nearly all-black Air Jordan 15, Twitter user @SneakerSpy also posted a photo of another colorway in the beginning of this month. Both the sleek woven component that is a part of this sneaker’s uppers and the leather overlay that is wrapped around the mudguard are both dressed up in a Navy hue. This sneaker also features a textured overlay on its heels, which are covered in a contrasting Grey hue, while rubber sole units that this sneaker is equipped with, alternate between Black and White.
So far, it has not really been confirmed if either of these two sneakers will actually be one of the Air Jordan releases 2017. Rumor has it that the Air Jordan 15 “Stealth” will indeed hit the shelves next year, but nothing is really certain about this other Navy & Grey colorway.
