Amidst this month’s Air Jordan releases 2019, Jordan Brand will release an Air Jordan 3 “Tinker” inspired by the original Nike Air Max 1. If you know your sneaker history well enough, you may have probably figured out why Jordan Brand has chosen to draw inspiration from the Nike Air Max 1 OG colorway for this upcoming Air Jordan 3 “Tinker” iteration. It was Tinker Hatfield who actually began working on the Air Max 1 back in the mid-1980s, applying his architectural background to the design of the sneaker model. Ultimately, the Air Max 1 debuted on March 26th, 1987 as Nike’s first sneaker model equipped with Air cushioning.
Reportedly, the Air Jordan 34 could potentially make its retail debut among this year’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 in Fall. It would almost seem like it was yesterday that the unveiling of the Air Jordan 33 took place in Los Angeles on September 20th, 2018. The Air Jordan 33 eventually made its debut on October 18th, 2018 in a colorway that was dubbed “Future of Flight,” which retailed for $175. It also arrived in colorways nicknamed “Blackout,” “Visible Utility,” “Year Of The Pig,” and others. However, it is unlikely that any of you were expecting reading news about the Air Jordan 34 so early in 2019.
Amidst the final Air Jordan releases 2019, this year will mark the comeback of the Air Jordan 11 “Bred” during the Holiday Season. Back in November 2015, Nike whipped up a special colorway of the Air Trainer SC that borrowed and drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 11 “Bred.” Much like the Air Jordan 11, the mudguards of the Air Trainer SC were also made up of patent leather. It was also dressed up in the same color scheme of Black, Varsity Red and White. After having been re-released twice before in 2001 and 2012, the Air Jordan 11 “Bred” itself is returning once again.
A brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 13 that has been referred to as “Atmosphere Grey” is set to join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019. Near the end of last year, in December 2018, Jordan Brand teamed up with the lifestyle brand and streetwear label CLOT to release a Terracotta Army-inspired and an “INFRA-BRED” colorway. They both made their retail debut shortly before Christmas on December 22nd, 2018. Last month in February 2019, it was revealed that Jordan Brand would be continuing the theme of 2018’s Air Jordan 11 “Cap And Gown” by releasing a similar colorway of the Air Jordan 13 on May 18th, 2019 for $200.
After making its retail debut next month, it seems that the Jordan Proto React will join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 in more colorways. As you may know by now, the Proto React is one of Jordan Brand’s upcoming original, flight suit-inspired models that utilize their new, cutting edge Flight Utility design. Additionally, it is also equipped with Nike’s React cushioning. Jordan Brand recently confirmed that three different debuting colorways of the Proto React would hit the shelves next month. However, it seems that three other colorways of the model may also end up arriving at retailers in April 2019.
The Jordan 6 Rings does not hit the shelves very often, but it seems that upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 will include a new colorway. The 6 Rings stands out for being one of Jordan Brand’s most unique sneaker models, given that it is a hybrid that it is a combination of the Air Jordan 6 to 8, and the Air Jordan 11 to 14. Its nickname is also a reference to the teams that the Chicago Bulls defeated to become the NBA champions six different times during the 1990s. Last month in February 2019, the Jordan 6 Rings hit the shelves in a Championship-inspired Black and Gold colorway.
