Travis Scott recently provided an up-close preview of his Air Jordan 6 colorway that will be among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Travis Scott seems to have been rather busy as of late. He recently teamed up with SZA and The Weeknd to sing a song titled “Power Is Power,” which is essential Jon Snow’s theme song as a part of HBO’s Game of Thrones companion music album. In other (not-so-favorable) news, a court has ordered Travis Scott to pay almost $400,000 to a Minneapolis-based promotion company for a gig he canceled on the day of the Super Bowl LIII.
It seems that Jordan Brand is going to be introducing a brand new sneaker models along with all the Air Jordan releases 2019 this summer. It is certainly not a common occurrence for Jordan Brand to introduce a new basketball sneaker model that is not a part of their signature Air Jordan line. In fact, you probably cannot even recall the last time Jordan Brand unveiled such a model. Most recently, it happened this very year on January 10th, 2019 when Russell Westbrook’s Why Not Zer0.2 debuted. This new model named the Jordan Zero Gravity seems to be potentially inspired by it and even has a similar name.
Air Jordan releases 2019 set to make their retail debut in the coming weeks will also include this new colorway of the Jordan Apex-React. Unveiled last year, the Jordan Apex-React comes equipped with Jordan Brand’s Flight Utility design and technology, which were first introduced last year with the debut of the Air Jordan 33. Flight Utility has been referred to as the future of Jordan Brand’s design, which will now emphasize more on functionality and innovation, while still retaining their core DNA. One look at the Jordan Apex-React, or even the Proto-Max 720 or the Proto-React, makes it obvious that Jordan Brand has adopted a new design ethos.
You may now get a better look at the Air Jordan 1 “Dynamic Yellow,” which will be among the Air Jordan releases 2019 in the coming months. Back in 2016, the Air Jordan 1 High got completely deconstructed. It was the first time that the Air Jordan 1 High had undergone such an extreme transformation. The Air Jordan 1 High Deconstructed was a minimalistic variation that had one-piece uppers with no overlays at all. Its stripped down uppers merely featured stitching in places where the overlays would have been to make it more distinguishable. The Air Jordan 1 High Deconstructed made its retail in a “Black/Sail” and “Ivory/White” colorway.
While he did not cop any of the recent Air Jordan releases 2019, Kemba Walker grabbed several kicks on the recent “Sneaker Shopping” episode. In case you don’t already know, Sneaker Shopping is Complex’s hit miniseries that was initially, episodically released on Complex.com and YouTube. While you can still watch the series there, it now also airs on television ever since Complex Networks partnered with MSG Networks. Currently, every new episode of “Sneaker Shopping” airs as a part of the network’s “MSG Shorts” programming. The series literally revolves around Complex’s Joe La Puma taking various artists and athletes for some sneaker shopping at leading sneaker retailers around the U.S.
It has been officially confirmed that the Air Jordan 4 “Bred” is indeed returning and will be among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Rumors that the Air Jordan 4 “Bred” would be making a comeback began circulating as far back as June 2018. Of course, release information was scarce and a couple of sources reported that it would hit the shelves at some point in April 2019, which is certainly not the case as everyone likely knows by now. Considering though that the Air Jordan 4 “Bred” is definitely returning during the first week of next month, it is about time Jordan Brand officially unveiled this year’s version.
Reportedly, Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan releases 2019 for this year’s Holiday Season will include a washed denim iteration of the Air Jordan 6. The Air Jordan 6 has received the denim treatment twice before, although unofficially, so neither of those iterations hit the shelves. Of these custom Air Jordan 6 “Ostrich and Denim” designed by JBF Customs back in September 2013. JBF Customs used the Air Jordan 6 “Olympic” to serve as the base for his custom creation. As its nickname likely suggests, its uppers made up of denim and faux ostrich leather. It wasn’t until four years later that another custom, denim Air Jordan 6 iteration was designed.
