One of the many things that make the Chicago Bulls one of the NBA’s most unique franchises is the fact that very minimal changes have taken place in their look over the years. For instance, the Bulls logo has changed a few times. Overall though, the colors and design of the jerseys worn today are similar to those of the jerseys worn back in 1996 when the team debuted. Of course, the Chicago Bulls have also worn a few alternate jerseys and several different looks throughout the years as well. An example would be their Home jersey, which has inspired this new colorway of the Air Jordan 31 Low.
As mentioned, the look of the Chicago Bulls has barely changed for decades and there is a reason behind it. Their red-colored road jersey has always sported a look that can be regarded as basic yet powerful, especially when athletes like Michael Jordan wore it. During the 90s, more specifically around 1997, members of the Chicago Bulls roster even wore pinstripe uniforms. Before the Chicago Bulls there was the Chicago Stags and as a nod to their predecessors, they dressed up in a Red-colored jersey with Blue-colored shorts back in 2005. Every year, the Chicago Bulls also sport new jerseys for Christmas.
All of the sneakerheads reading this may have already read about the upcoming all-red colorway of the Air Jordan 31 Low. Apparently Jordan Brand is going for a Home and Away theme because that colorway draws inspiration from the Away jerseys of the Chicago Bulls, while the one featured here is inspired by their Home jerseys. Thus, its premium leather and woven textile uppers are predominantly clean White. Black appears over the inner lining and the flightplate midsoles, adding some contrast. Further contrast is added by the Red hue that appears over the flywire cables and the “Jumpman” branding throughout.
Many sneakerheads are now probably looking forward to copping a pair of each colorway mentioned above, both of which will be joining this month’s final Jordan releases 2017. This Air Jordan 31 Low “Home” will be making its retail debut alongside the all-red “Away” colorway on June 30th at a price of $160.
