Jordan Brand will be introducing two brand new, futuristic sneaker models as a part of this year’s Air jordan releases 2019. Despite borrowing from the Air Jordan 3, the Air Jordan 33 looks nothing like it. As in the past, the Air Jordan 33 introduced Jordan Brand’s latest performance innovation, the FastFit system. The design of the Air Jordan 33 made it apparent that it had a “space flight” theme, along with having a somewhat exposed and deconstructed look. However, Jordan Brand’s venture into futuristic, technological advanced footwear is stepping beyond the Air Jordan 33 with the two new sneaker models, the Apex-Utility and the Proto Utility.
One of three colorways of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 that will be joining next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019 has been dubbed “The Family.” Russell Westbrook’s second signature sneaker model from Jordan Brand made its retail debut earlier last month on January 10th at a price of $130. Soon after its retail debut, Jordan Brand-sponsored collegiate teams also received exclusive iterations of the Why Not Zer0.2 sporting their respective team colors. In addition to the “BHM” color that will hit the shelves next month, a Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 colorway dubbed “Own The Game” will also be a part of Jordan Brand’s 2019 NBA All-Star Footwear Collection.
Having hit the shelves four times before, the Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” is returning once more amongst next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. The Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” was the sneaker Michael Jordan was wearing when he led the Chicago Bulls towards their first NBA championship victory and it was that very year that Jordan Brand released it. Following its original retail debut, it was re–released thrice, once in 2000, then in 2010, and finally in 2014. The most recent re-release was a remastered editions and so far, it was closest to the original, in terms of accuracy and resemblance. Perhaps this year’s version will be even better.
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.
The Chinese New Year is scheduled to begin on February 5th and Jordan Brand will commemorate the festival with two Air Jordan releases 2019. Nike is actually commemorating the Year of the Pig with an entire collection. The collection includes the Air Max 90, Air Max 98, Air Max 270 and the Kyrie 5. Also included is the Chuck 70. As a part of this collection, Jordan Brand will be dropping special colorways of two different models, namely the Air Jordan 12 and the Air Jordan 33. All of these sneakers will feature Chinese zodiac-inspired detailing and patterns, as well as Bai Jia Yi, which is Chinese patchwork.
This year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will mark the retail debut of an Air Jordan 6 “Flint” inspired by a similar colorway from the past. The “Flint” is one of Jordan Brand’s most recognized and well-known colorways that dates back to February 14th, 1998 when it debuted on the Air Jordan 13. This Air Jordan 13 iteration was released three days before Michael Jordan’s 35th birthday and was dressed up in a combination of Carolina Blue, Flint Grey, Navy and White. It was retroed and then re–retroed in 2005 and 2010, respectively. However, the upcoming Air Jordan 6 colorway mentioned here is inspired by an entirely different “Flint” colorway.
