Dino Hatfield (@baltsneakershow), who is known for being a reliable source for sneaker-related information and news, has revealed three potential Air Jordan releases 2017 that might actually happen. While Jordanheads obviously have no choice but to regard this information as a rumor and take it with a grain of salt and regard it as a rumor, they should also never say never, at least not yet. According to Dino Hatfield, 2017 will mark the comeback of the Air Jordan 4 “Motorsport” and the Air Jordan 13 OG “White/True Red-Black,” while a brand new Air Jordan 8 “UNDFTD” is apparently on its way too.
Back in 2006, Jordan Brand had dropped the Air Jordan 4 in a “Mars” colorway. Soon after its release, everyone who was a part of Michael Jordan’s Motorsports Team received an alternate version that sported Royal Blue detailing in celebration of the 4th Anniversary of the team. That version was dubbed “Motorsport” and Jordan Brand had merely whipped up a handful of pairs of the sneaker, one which was auctioned off on eBay back in 2015. Astonishingly, the pair on eBay was listed at a whopping $30,000. Fortunately, Jordanheads will not have to pay that much if Jordan Brand really does decide to release it in 2017 for the very first time.
The Air Jordan 13 OG “White/True Red-Black” had made its retail debut back on November 1, 1997. As the nickname likely suggests, the leather uppers of this sneaker were originally dressed up in a combination of Red and White. The Jumpman logo was featured on the tongues and the panther’s paw-shaped outsoles were both covered in ominous Black, adding a third hue to the color combination. As always, the sneaker also featured a hologram Jumpman near the heels as well and Zoom Air was incorporated into its insoles. Hopefully, this year’s version will look the same too.
It must be pointed out that the sneaker that can be seen above is actually the Air Jordan 4 “UNDFTD” that had hit the shelves back in 2005. The reason behind posting a photo of the Air Jordan 4 “UNDFTD” is that Dino Hatfield has claimed that the upcoming Air Jordan 8 UNDFTD, if Jordan Brand is indeed working on it, will look the same. Essentially, this means that the uppers of the Air Jordan 8 “UNDFTD” will also be dressed up in an Olive hue along with Orange accents on top. While none of the above information has been confirmed yet, any or all of the above three sneakers could potentially end up being one of the Jordan releases 2017.
