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.
It seems that three of next year‘s Air Jordan releases 2019 are going to be collaboratively designed by Jordan Brand and Trophy Room. For those who don’t know, Trophy Room is the boutique that Michael Jordan’s younger son Marcus Jordan opened back on May 23rd, 2016. It is located inside the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Considering Marcus Jordan’s obvious close connection with Jordan Brand, it was only natural that the boutique would be featuring many different Air Jordan PE pairs. In fact, Marcus Jordan even teamed up with Jordan Brand for a special Air Jordan release that exclusively debuted at Trophy Room’s grand opening.
