Over these past couple of weeks, Jordanheads have been getting better and more detailed looks at the two Air Jordan 8 colorways from this year’s “Championship” Pack. Since the previous “Championship” Air Jordan releases have all been Champagne- and Cigar-themed, it was assumed that the 2016 iterations of the Air Jordan 8 from the pack would be drawing from the same source of inspiration. As it turned out, the nicknames of these two Air Jordan 8 renditions are actually “Championship Trophy” and “Confetti.” So, while they may not be inspired by Michael Jordan’s favorite post-championship victory treats, they still reflect the whole Championship-theme of the pack.

From the looks of it, it seems quite obvious that the Air Jordan 5 Low is one of the leading from Jordan Brand this year. It does not really matter if sales of the latest Air Jordan 5 Low colorways have been high or not, but the fact remains that the low-top silhouette will continue arriving at retailers over the course of this year. There is one particular rendition of the model that will definitely fly off the shelves, the Air Jordan 5 Low “Neymar” that is nicknamed after the famous Brazilian professional footballer who plays for the Brazilian nation team and the Spanish club, FC Barcelona.

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. Continue reading 2017 Could Mark The Release Of Not One But Two Jordan 15 Colorways
There was a time when Jordan Brand would drop only one Air Jordan 11 colorway in a year, which would usually be the annual Holiday Air Jordan 11 release of the year. However, Jordanheads are likely quite well-aware that this year will be different since the scheduled Air Jordan releases of 2016 include multiple iterations of the eleventh model. Along with this year’s Holiday release, the silhouette is also slated to arrive in a “Navy/Gum” and “Varsity Red” rendition. Surprisingly, it turns out that Jordan Brand have whipped up another Air Jordan 11 colorway too that might just make its retail debut this year.

Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan’s son, is set to officially open doors to Trophy Room at Disney Springs on May 23rd. The sneaker store, which is situated in a shopping center in Bay Lake, Florida near the Walt Disney resort there, will mark the beginning of a new era for the Jordan shopping experience. A day or two ago, a photo had surfaced of the Air Jordan 23 “Trophy Room” that has been designed in celebration of the store’s upcoming opening. However, it turns out that this might not be the only colorway of the Air Jordan 23 that joins the Jordan releases 2016 of this year. Continue reading Two New Air Jordan 23 Colorways Will Make Their Way To Retailers Soon
Less than a week remains until Jordan Brand drops the Air Jordan 10 Retro “Chicago Flag” from the “City Pack” 2016, which was formerly known simply as the “Chicago” colorway. Most Jordanheads are likely aware that the Air Jordan 10 “Rio” made its retail debut this past weekend, in fact, many of them had probably gone out and grabbed a pair to add to their collection. Apparently, many of them will be heading out to the same retailers once again in a few days in order to add another sneaker from the “City Pack” to their collection, which will be the Air Jordan 10 Retro “Chicago Flag.”
Following an exhausting and wearying 7-game play off series, the Charlotte Hornets were not able to defeat the Miami Heat. Considering that Michael Jordan owns the franchise, it should be quite obvious that he was likely feeling quite disappointed by their loss. In fact, it would not be too farfetched to assume that deep down, the G.O.A.T. was probably thinking about coming out of retirement in order to aid his franchise towards victory. Of course, MJ’s days of suiting up for an on-court performance are long gone, which is why a sneaker like the returning Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” is sure to bring back memories.
Jordanheads may or may not have noticed but there has not been much official marketing from Jordan brand for the Air Jordan 12. However, that does not change the fact that the twelfth Air Jordan model has made frequent appearances on retail shelves in 2016. Even though Jordan Brand has not dropped any O.G. colorways of the silhouette yet, every colorway that has hit the shelves, over the course of the past few months, flew off of them almost instantly. Of course, there was never a doubt that Jordanheads would be lining up to cop a pair of the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game.”
Ever since receiving a proper retro treatment back in 2003, this will be the first time that the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” returns once again featuring a similar level of quality. Instead of using nubuck like the 2009 retro, this year’s version is once again has uppers made up of full-grain leather, which are partly covered in vivid red overlays. Moreover, the sneaker does not sport any unnecessary details that were not present on it when Jordan Brand had first introduced it.
Old school Jordanheads probably even still refer to this Air Jordan 12 colorway as the “Bred” iteration because of its black and red color scheme. Regardless of what it is called, the returning Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” is scheduled to retail at a price of $190 on May 28th of jordan release dates.
