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.
Michael Jordan rocked the Air Jordan 7 in 1992, the year in which the Chicago Bulls won their second consecutive NBA Championship. This second Reflective iteration is a variation of the “Cardinal” colorway iteration, which was one of the five colorways from 1992. The Air Jordan 7 OG “Cardinal” was eventually re-released twice after that, once in 2006 and then in 2011. Once again, when compared to the original, 3M reflective material has replaced the plain White uppers. However, the Red-, Gold- and White-colored detailing, including the embroidered “Jumpman” logo, can still be spotted. Moreover, its soles are similarly covered in Black, almost entirely.
Last but not least, the third “Reflective” iteration that will be joining this summer’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will be that of the Air Jordan 8. More specifically, it is essentially the Air Jordan 8 “Bugs Bunny” but 3M reflective uppers instead of plain White ones. The OG “Bugs Bunny” colorway of the Air Jordan 8 made its retail debut back on April 20th, 2013 at a price of $160. Apart from the reflective uppers, this variation still features the same color blocking and detailing, which includes Black-, Grey- and True Red-colored accents. Even the chenille “Jumpman” logo on its tongues sports the same color scheme.
