With the holiday season on its way Jordan Brand just unveiled its Holiday 2021 Air Jordan retro collection. Consisting of 13 styles in all, the collection revisits some of Michael Jordan’s most lovable signature models by giving them some modern fashion touches like coating the Air Jordan 1 in patent leather to applying camo to the Air Jordan 3, and many more.
To start off the collection is a four-pack of Air Jordan 1s. Firstly, we have the Air Jordan 1 “Patent Bred” following a premium take on the OG Air Jordan 1 “Bred” viz. fully coated in patent leather. Next, there’s the Air Jordan 1 “Bordeaux”, a color-flipped take on the CO.JP line’s Air Jordan 1 “Midnight Navy.” Also, there’s this Air Jordan “Handcrafted”- a fall-ready with style having widespread color and rich in detail, and the Air Jordan 1 “Atmosphere” featuring a pink patent leather-designed sneaker inspired by MJ’s love for bubble gums.
After the Air Jordan 1’s there are two takes on the Air Jordan 3 and two designs for the Air Jordan 5. The Air Jordan 3 “Pine Green” comes with a combination of Oregon Ducks color and classic cement print. And the camo-covered Air Jordan 3 features a rain, leaf, and woodland camo pattern at the top. A material mixes that has everything from the Waxed canvas to twill, ripstop, and herringbone. Both the Air Jordan 5s are of women’s style, with “Jade Horizon” featuring a light jade upper and aged eyestays whilst the other style comes with a bright bluebird tone with icy soles to match.
Finishing up with the collection there are 5 singular Air Jordan models, naming the Air Jordan 9, Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 13, Air Jordan 14, and Air Jordan 14 low. The Air Jordan 9 with the “Chile Red” has a very attractive look that resembles the 2012’s Air Jordan 9 “Motorboat Jones” to some extent. The Air Jordan 12 “royalty” is basically an Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” having some extra gold details. The Air Jordan 13 “Court Purple” is just a striking twist to a classic style. Next, the Air Jordan 14 comes in a winterized build of vacuum-molded wheat upper with a sturdy suede. Lastly, the Air Jordan 14 low features in women’s sized shock pink colorway which is said to be inspired by Jumpman for being “Boldly and Unapologetically yourself.
The collection is said to release on the Nike SNKRS app in October, as there are no official release dates revealed yet.
