Due to its 30th anniversary this year, most Air Jordan releases 2019 will be Air Jordan 4 colorways, such as the latest one dubbed “Hot Lava.” Earlier last month, the Air Jordan 4 “Berry Pink” made its retail debut on February 9th, 2019 at a price of $140. The color scheme made it obvious that it had designed for female sneakerheads and while not explicitly stated, this colorway was essentially Jordan Brand’s Valentine’s Day release. Furthermore, it was also meant to be a part of Jordan Brand’s historic “For The Love Of The Game” series due to the little “basketball heart” logo it featured on its True Berry-colored uppers.
“Black Leather” and “Hot Punch” colorways of the Air Jordan 4 already joined last month’s Air Jordan releases 2019 and more are on their way. Back in January, Jalen Ramsey also shared a photo of a Jacksonville Jaguars-themed Air Jordan 4“Laser” iteration. Earlier this month, @hanzuying also posted the very first photos of this 2019 version of the Air Jordan 4 “Bred” on Instagram, one of which is featured below. Of course, as you may know, it is the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4 this year. Hence, it should be expected that plenty of other Air Jordan 4 colorways will hit the shelves in the coming months.
One of the recent Air Jordan releases 2019 was an “All–Star” colorway of the Air Jordan 33 that debuted a month before the All–Star Weekend. Earlier this month, Jordan Brand released an all–Red Air Jordan 33 iteration that looked like a hybrid of the Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” and the Don C x Air Jordan 2 due to featuring similar quilted uppers. In commemoration of the Chinese New Year, which officially begins on February 5th, a “Year of the Pig” colorway of the Air Jordan 33 will also be making its retail debut next month. Before that though, Jordan Brand recently dropped the “All-Star” colorway you see here.
As Jordan Brand keeps up with its annual tradition, so one of next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will celebrate the Chinese New Year. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 will be the Year of the Pig. The pig also happens to be the last animal in the Chinese 12–year cycle. The Chinese zodiac also claims that people born in the Year of the Pig tend to develop beautiful personalities and are likely to be blessed with good fortune in their lives. Much like last year and the years before it, Jordan Brand will once again be celebrating the Chinese New Year by releasing a new Air Jordan colorway.
For the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4, several new colorways of the model will be joining next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. You may already know about the two Air Jordan 4 colorways that draw inspiration from Spike Lee’s comedy–drama film, Do the Right Thing. Based on the Photoshop illustrations, one of the two iterations seemed like it borrowed the colors from the Gucci stripes. Of course, they are both actually inspired by the Italian flag and “Sal’s Pizzeria” from the film. In addition to these two colorways though, many others will arrive next year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4.
One of the Air Jordan 11‘s most iconic colorways will make its comeback as a part of next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Jordan Brand might be setting a new annual Holiday Season tradition of bringing back iconic Air Jordan 11 colorways during December. The Air Jordan 11 “Concord” made its highly-anticipated return this year. In fact, it just hit the shelves at a long list of retailers on December 8th so hurry up and grab your pair(s) now at a price of $220. While the Air Jordan 11 “Bred” has been re-released before, those who do not own a pair yet would not want to miss its return.
