Just about everyone reading this is likely aware that Black Friday marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. On Black Friday, all the malls throughout the country become jam-packed with shoppers in search of deals and exclusives that are not generally available the rest of the year. Of course, sneakerheads are quite accustomed with lining outside of retail stores during weekends in order to cop a pair of the latest sneaker release, such as those by Jordan Brand and Nike. Although the Air Jordan 3 OG 88 “True Blue” is this year’s Black Friday release, but apparently Jordan Brand will drop an Air Jordan 31 on Black Friday.
Hence, there will be not one but two Black Friday Jordan releases in 2016, and maybe even more. Back in 2015, the highlight of the week around Black Friday had been the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua.” Whether they now own a pair or not, plenty of sneakerheads probably know that the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” was a returning colorway that Michael Jordan had worn in Salt Lake City during the 1993 NBA All-Star Game. For years and years, sneakerheads had wished that this iteration would receive the retro treatment and finally their wish had been granted when Jordan Brand had dropped it last year.
ComplexCon had recently taken place in Long Beach, California between November 5th and 6th. Over the weekend during which ComplexCon was held, a never-before-seen iteration of the Air Jordan 31 had also been unveiled. Clark Kent, the hip hop DJ, was the one who previewed this brand new Air Jordan 31 colorway at the exhibition and festival. The fact that its all-Black uppers are apparently made up of leather and suede suggests that this is perhaps a premium rendition. Furthermore, it is also equipped with Black-colored Nike “Swoosh” logos, a few Red-colored accents, off-White outsoles and waxed laces.
Considering that Black Friday is weeks away, Jordan Brand may end up unveiling a few other kicks that they may drop on that special day. For the time being, sneakerheads can expect this premium Air Jordan 31 iteration to also hit the shelves on November 25th.
