It is certainly true that the Jordan Instigator has not gained a similar level of popularity as Jordan Brand’s signature models in their basketball sneaker lineup. However, it is far too soon for Jordan Brand to give up on their new lifestyle model. For Jordanheads this means that they are being presented with another opportunity to get their hands on a new rendition of the Instigator. This upcoming iteration of the Jordan Instigator takes up the nickname “Golden Tan,” considering its nearly all-gold appearance, and this colorway will hit the shelves on one of the future Jordan release dates 2015.
For sneakerheads who do not already know, the Instigator draws its inspiration from the Air Jordan 1, which is the reason it probably reminds them of Jordan Brand’s first signature silhouette. The overall structure of this model also matches that of the Air Jordan 1 and even the midsole is as simple as the AJ1’s. Moreover, the back heel of the Jordan Instigator also bears some resemblance to Nike’s Kyrie 1 iD basketball sneaker. However, unlike those two sneakers, Jordan Brand’s new lifestyle silhouette has not exactly been welcomed with similar enthusiasm and fervor.
The toebox of this new jordans is wrapped up in glossy golden tan-colored patent leather, which quite impressively gradients into the upper, which itself is made up of “Wheat” like nubuck leather and the Kyrie 1-like diamond structure makes the heel stand out. The only portion of this sneaker that is not dressed up in the golden tan hue is the outsole, which is actually white.
One thing that Jordanheads cannot deny is that the color scheme and construction of Jordan Brand’s lifestyle model does indeed make it look like a sneaker meant to be worn off-court. Despite Jordan Brand’s intention to continue expanding their lifestyle selection, they have not yet announced any potential Jordan release dates 2015 on which the Jordan Instigator “Golden Tan” will arrive at retailers.
