The 2018 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to commence on June 14th and conclude on July 15th, 2018. Russia is hosting this year’s 21st FIFA World Cup. Earlier this month, Paris Saint-Germain was victorious in the Coupe de France final by defeating Les Herbiers with a score of 2-0. It is one of the only two French football clubs to have won a European trophy, namely the 1995–96 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. Jordan Brand is apparently congratulating the celebrated football club by drawing inspiration from it for two of their upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018, which may end up arriving together.
As can be seen, one of the two sneakers drawing inspiration from the Paris-based football club is the Air Jordan 1 High. It sports the color scheme of Paris Saint-Germain’s alternate uniforms. Thus, its uppers are dressed up entirely in Black while having been paired with all-White midsoles and outsoles that are covered in Black too. The Red and White-colored vertical band that is a part of the club’s branding also makes an appearance on the midsoles and on the “Nike Air” tongue tabs. Paris Saint-Germain’s slogan “ici c’est Paris,” which means “here is Paris” in English, can also be spotted on the insoles.
The second sneaker that is inspired by Paris Saint-Germain is the Air Jordan 5. Like the Air Jordan 1 High, it also borrows the color scheme of the club’s alternate uniform. However, it appears to be all-Black, with the exception of the branding, the speckled shark-teeth pattern and its icy, translucent outsoles. The branding it features includes the “PARIS” visible on the netting, with “a” having been replaced with the “Jumpman” logo. The “45” on the sides have been replaced with “75,” which is number all Paris zip codes begin with. Finally, the Red and White-colored vertical band, a combined “PSG/Jumpman” logo can be spotted on the heels.
Although there are no official release details as of now, both of these sneakers will be among Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan releases 2018 for this summer/fall. While this may not turn out to be the case, these Air Jordan 1 High and Air Jordan 5 “Paris Saint-German” may even end up joining Jordan Brand’s “International Pack.”
