Earlier this month, a number of upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 were unveiled at the Nike NYHQ, which was opened back in June 2017. Among the sneakers unveiled was an Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Hyper Royal,” an Air Jordan 3 “Burgundy” and an Air Jordan 13 with faux croc-skin detailing. Also unveiled were another Air Jordan 3 and an Air Jordan 12 iteration, both of which were revealed to be a part of an “International” Pack that Jordan Brand has been working on. As of now, not much is known about the theme behind this upcoming “International” Pack, but the sneakers it consists of are featured here.
2018 is being referred to as the year of the Air Jordan 3, considering that this year marked its 30th anniversary. Thus, the colorway that is a part of the “International” Pack is just one of many that will be joining this year’s Air Jordan releases 2018. While there has been no official announcement about the theme behind this iteration’s color scheme, nor do they seem to be any reports or rumors regarding it, but it might be borrowing from the flag of France. Perhaps that is why it is dressed up in a combination of Blue, Red and White, along with light shade of Grey appearing throughout.
Unlike the Air Jordan 3 from this “International” Pack, the theme behind the Air Jordan 12, which is a part of it, appears to be more obvious. This Air Jordan 12 colorway appears to draw inspiration from Japan. Its uppers seem to be predominantly made up of Navy-colored suede with a debossed floral print covering it, while a scaly texture can be spotted over its plain White mudguards. In addition to the floral print that covers the inner lining; Japanese writing can also be spotted over the heels and inner lining. It is also interesting to note that the Air Jordan 12 itself was inspired by the Japanese flag.
The Air Jordan 3 from this “International” Pack will be the first to make its retail debut, scheduled to arrive at retailers on July 7th, but its price is unknown as of now. The Air Jordan 12 from this pack will hit the shelves a month after that on September 8th, 2018 and it will retail at a price of $190.
