Many of the recent colorways of the Jordan Eclipse that were released not so long ago were somewhat of a nod to Jordan Brand’s past. The latest colorway of the hybrid silhouette to do the same is this Black and Metallic Gold Jordan Eclipse iteration, which appears to be subtly referencing the Defining Moments Pack. Therefore, Jordanheads would want to stay tuned for an announcement of one of the near future Jordan release dates 2015 for the arrival of this new Eclipse colorway at US retailers.
It was back in 2006 when Jordan Brand released the “Defining Moments Pack,” which included an Air Jordan 6 and an Air Jordan 11 pair. The concept of this package was introduced in honor of the greatest moments that Michael Jordan achieved during his professional basketball career, especially his NBA Championship victories in 1991 and 1996. The “Hare” colorway and the recent “Elephant Print” iteration of the Jordan Eclipse make it obvious that it has been borrowing from Air Jordan classics. This time the minimalist silhouette is dressed in a palette that resembles the kicks from the “Defining Moments Pack.”
The upper of this Jordan Eclipse rendition looks more like the Jordan 6 from the “Defining Moments Pack” due to being covered in entirely in Black, including the mesh wave through the sidewalls and tongue. The heel of this sneaker features metallic gold Jordan “Jumpman” and “Air” branding, while an all-White midsole and outsole complete the look.
While it is just an assumption that this Air Jordan Eclipse colorway may have been inspired by Jordan Brand’s most glorious colorways, the resemblance cannot be denied. Moreover, considering Jordan Brand’s recent trend of exploring past themes when it comes to the Eclipse, this assumption could very well be correct. Regardless, even though none of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2015 have been confirmed for a US retail debut, this Jordan Eclipse sneaker has already hit the shelves at international retailers like Titolo.
