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.
Emsley A. Laney High School provides the inspiration for one of next year’s most anticipated Air Jordan releases 2019. In case you are wondering, it is the high school where Michael Jordan studied and was the star of its junior varsity basketball team. It was around that time that he rose to prominence, despite almost not making the cut for the team back during the 1978-79 season. This is not the first time that Michael Jordan’s alma mater is serving as inspiration for an Air Jordan colorway. This is actually not even the first time that the colors of Laney High School are appearing on the Air Jordan 5.
Amidst all the Air Jordan releases 2018, it is somewhat rare to see a LeBron 15 pair drawing inspiration from Jordan Brand’s signature line. Earlier this month, Nike launched the #LeBronWatch campaign. As a part of it, LeBron James appeared on the court laced up in special LeBron 15 colorways drawing inspiration from Nike’s illustrious history. These included colorways inspired by the Air Diamond Turf Air Max 95 “Neon,” Air Mowabb, Ken Griffey Jr., and even a Nike shoe box from 1972. Unexpectedly though, LeBron James was recently spotted rocking a LeBron 15 iteration that features the color scheme and detailing of a highly coveted Air Jordan 5 colorway.
Back in 2016, Jordan Brand unveiled the Air Jordan 1 Satin as a limited edition variation of the model, which made its retail debut on October 18th that year at a price of $175. This was the first time that a majority of the Air Jordan 1’s uppers were made up of satin material instead of the traditional leather. At the time of its debut, the Air Jordan 1 Satin was dressed up in the “Banned” or “Bred” color scheme. For the very first time, the Air Jordan 5 is also receiving the Satin treatment and it will also be dressed up in a “Bred” color scheme.
