These Air Jordan 1 & Air Jordan 5 “Triple Black” Colorways Will During Summer

White is widely recognized as the color of summer, but it is actually black-colored attire and footwear that people should be wearing during the summer. While it would seem that darker outfits and footwear heat up quicker than lighter ones, it also depends on their fitting and the wind conditions. Those who favor white for the summer would find it strange that Bedouins living in fiery deserts tend to wear black-colored robes. Perhaps Jordan Brand believes both are suitable and so along with their upcoming all-White Air Jordan releases 2017, they have also whipped up “Triple Black” colorways of the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 5.

The reason people prefer to wear white during summer is due to the belief and notion that white, or lighter colors, reflect the heat of the sun. However, many of these people do not take into consideration the fact that our own body also generates heat during summer and the heat emanating from the body is far closer than that coming from the sun. When wearing white or lighter colors, the heat being generated by the body has no way of escaping into the environment, rather it is reflected back. On the other hand, black or darker colors absorb that heat that emanates from the body.

With the two “Triple Black” sneaker iterations featured here, sneakerheads will hopefully not have to worry about their feet getting sweaty during summer. The Air Jordan 5 “Triple Black” featured here is actually a Premium release. Its side panels and tongue are made up of ribbed leather, while even more leather has been used throughout. Even the Air Jordan 1 Retro High looks quite premium with its sleek, push leather uppers and its tongues feature University Red-colored “Nike Air” branding. Of course, both sneakers are entirely dressed up in Black, as their nickname suggests.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Triple Black” is scheduled to retail at a price of $160 among the June Air Jordan releases 2017. As for the Air Jordan 5 Premium “Triple Black,” it will also hit the shelves in June, but its retail price will be a whopping $400.
