For Jordanheads who do not already know, the Charlotte Hornets is a professional basketball team that Michael Jordan largely owns. Despite this fact, the brand that is named after Michael Jordan himself has not dropped that many sneakers sporting color scheme’s inspired by MJ’s franchise. Sure, there have been a few Hornets-inspired colorways, but nothing major, and this trend is apparently going to change when this Air Jordan 1 High iteration hits the shelves on one of the upcoming 2015 air jordan release dates.
Back near the end of July, photos of a very unusual Air Jordan 1 High “Hornets” Sample popped up on the Internet and this upcoming Hornets-inspired rendition of the Air Jordan 1 High looks quite similar. The pair unveiled last month was actually mismatched, which makes them quite interesting. Even more surprisingly, the photos came from eBay, where the colorway was apparently being sold in a size 13 and has probably been copped by now.
As seen in the photos, the side panels and toe boxes of both shoes are made up of white leather. However, the reason they are mismatched is because one shoe sports a greater amount of the teal accents while the other shoe sports a greater amount of the silver accents. Although not mismatched, the upcoming Air Jordan 1 High “Hornets” looks quite similar to the sample pair.
Finally, Jordan Brand utilized their first iconic signature sneaker model to officially pay tribute to the franchise that Michael Jordan owns. Inspired the team’s official colors, the sneaker’s leather upper is predominantly dressed up in crisp white match the midsole and outsole, while the upper is also dominated by purple accents as well. To complete this Hornets-inspired color scheme, the Jordan Wings logo and the Nike Swoosh are both covered in teal.
Jordan Brand has yet to drop any hint regarding that mismatched Hornets-inspired Air Jordan 1 High pair that went up on sale on eBay. Moreover, one of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2015 has yet to be confirmed for the retail debut of the Air Jordan 1 High “Hornets.”
