An Air Jordan 12 iteration, which will be among next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019, will have uppers made up of cow fur and faux snakeskin. When referring to fur, a lot of you may have been thinking about the Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Viotech” that recently made its retail debut on December 15th at a price of $160. It actually came with cowhide laces and faux fur on its tongues, which could be dethatched. This is actually not the first time that an Air Jordan release has featured fur. In fact, Jordan Brand released a similar Air Jordan 4 iteration back in 2016.
Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan 4 was originally released back in 1989. As you may have realized, next year will mark its 30th anniversary, so it is understandable that old and new colorways of the model will be among the Air Jordan releases 2019. The Air Jordan 4 is already trending because of the collaborative “Cactus Jack” iteration that recently made its retail debut and the other variations of it that Travis Scott has laced up in so far. Even a Levi’s x Air Jordan 4 Collection is arriving later this month. Two other Air Jordan 4 colorways that will potentially debut next year have also surfaced.
One of these colorways has apparently been dubbed “Pale Citron.” zSneakerHeadz was the one who shared the image at the top and has revealed the nickname of this iteration. The image is actually a Photoshop rendering that was created by Jays•are•dead (@jayzrdead), but you may expect the colorway to look somewhat like this. As can be seen, a majority of the uppers of this iteration will be clean White, while featuring Black-, Crimson- and Pale Citron-colored accents. Currently, nothing is known about what materials its uppers will be made up of and where it draws inspiration from, but there is still plenty of time for more details to surface.
The second colorway of the Air Jordan 4 that will reportedly make its retail debut has apparently been dubbed “Pink Patent” and as you may or may not have guessed, it is a women’s exclusive. The above image is also a Photoshop rendering that was collaboratively created by HOUSE OF HEAT (@thehouseofheat) and Sneaker Info. (@pinoe77). Its design might actually be inspired by the Jordan Brand’s hybrid 11Lab4 line. As its nickname suggests, its uppers are completely made up of patent leather and are dressed up in a vibrant Pink hue, which also covers its midsoles and outsoles, making it a monochrome iteration.
Despite the lack of more information, these colorways will reportedly be joining January’s Air Jordan releases 2019 next year. Furthermore, these Air Jordan 4 “Pale Citron” and “Patent Pink” will retail at a price of $190.
The NBA All-Star Game is scheduled to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on February 18, 2018. This year’s NBA All-Star voting has already concluded. While the fans had likely voted for their favorites, they do not exactly have the final say in who will actually end up playing in the game. In fact, the voting only makes up 50% of the committee that picks the starters, while the other half consists of the media and players, both of whom have a 25% say in it. Apparently, Jordan Brand wants to get a head start on the festivities with a new Air Jordan 1 High release. Continue reading Get A Head Start On All-Star Festivities With This Air Jordan 1 “LA”

Sneakerheads may or may not have realized it, but the Air Jordan 1 “Igloo” and the Air Jordan 1 NRG “Rust Pink” are a part of a collection that has been dubbed the “Art Basel” Pack. Jordan Brand and Social Status teamed up for the launch of this pack via a pop-up installation that they set up in Miami Beach. This pack was inspired by and designed for the special Art Basel 2017 event that recently took place between December 7th and 10th, 2017 in Miami Beach. However, the Air Jordan 1 “Art Basel” Pack did not end up retailing at the intended pop-up location due to unforeseen circumstances.

Back in 2014, Nike Sportswear’s 21 Mercer store underwent renovation for an entire month and was then reopened as their brand new Nike Lab concept store. Apart from offering sneakerheads the latest Jordan Brand and Nike products, NikeLab 21M also serves as a space for Nike to showcase their heritage and innovations. Nike also revealed that they plan to introduce similar retail concept stores in Hong Kong, London, Milan, Paris and Shanghai, so that sneakerheads can avail the same retail experience all over the world. Unfortunately, NikeLab 21M in New York City had to cancel the recent exclusive release of the Air Jordan 1 “Top 3 Gold.” Continue reading Will The Air Jordan 1 “Top 3 Gold” Ever Return After Being Cancelled?
