As a part of the 2019 Nike N7 Collection, this year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will include an Air Jordan 8 made up of Pendleton fabrics. Around Fall, Jordan Brand and Nike are known to team up and put together a collection that contributes to the N7 Fund, supporting Aboriginal communities and Native American sport organizations. Aboriginal rapper Taboo was the fact of last year’s N7 Collection, which drew inspiration from his personal Native American cultural heritage and roots. He reported that his style was influenced by the outfits of traditional Native American dancers in East L.A. The color palette and “intricate beadwork patterning” also influenced the collection.
Jordan Brand’s three upcoming Air Jordan releases are “Reflective” varitions of OG colorways from the Bulls’ first championship three-peat. Starting with the Air Jordan 6 that you can see above, you may have recognized that this “Reflective” is using the OG “Infared” colorway as its base. At the time when the Air Jordan 6 was introduced and Michael Jordan laced up in it, he was on his way towards leading the Chicago Bulls to their first NBA Championship victory. Instead of nearly all-Black, its uppers are now completely reflective. Black still appears over the heels, laces, midsoles and tongues, and the Infrared-colored accents are the same as the original.
This year marked the debut of renditions of the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 3, which Tinker Hatfield modified to resemble his original, respective sketches of these two models. The Air Jordan 3 “Tinker” arrived on April 30th, which was Tinker Hatfield’s birthday, while the Air Jordan 13 was transformed into a completely different model, which was dubbed the Jordan Black Cat. It seems that upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 are going to include a “Tinker” series of sneakers of a slightly different nature. It will consist of Air Jordan models inspired by some of Michael Jordan’s favorite Nike sneakers that were designed by Tinker Hatfield.
