This past Wednesday, Jordan Brand made the announcement that the Spring Jordan release dates 2016 would be marking the retail debut of three different retro collections. According to them, these new sets of sneakers will represent all those times Michael Jordan took flight to great throughout his illustrious career. For sneaker collectors, news these new retro releases is somewhat of a blessing that will shower upon them following the conclusion of the final Jordan release dates 2015.
Considering that Jordan Brand always likes to create early hype so their fans have something to anticipate, it is no surprise that eight new sneaker releases were recently announced by them. Although Jordan Brand intends to drop the new sets next year, but there is no reason for Jordanheads not to get an early preview of the kicks that are on their way.
In order to whip up these three legacy sneaker collections, Jordan Brand drew inspiration from Michael Jordan’s career highlights. Inspiration behind the two sneaker colorways also comes from Jordan Brand advertisement campaigns featuring Michael Jordan himself, which were released during the respective debuts of the two models. The “Poster” Collection is the first one of the three that has been unveiled, and it consists of the Air Jordan 2 and Air Jordan 12.
It was back in 1986 when the Air Jordan 2 silhouette was first introduced and this new black, dark gray and white colorway with exotic croc-textured leather that is a part of the collection has been dubbed “Wing It.” Considering that next year marks the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan 12, it should not be surprising that the model is also included in this collection. The black and white sneaker with gold accents has been nicknamed “The Master” after a poster once created for Michael Jordan.
It is true that a large number of highly-anticipated Air Jordan sneakers are still slated to arrive at retailers through the remaining Jordan release dates 2015. However, many sneakerheads are now probably keeping their eyes peeled for Spring 2016. It is too early to expect a confirmation, but it is obvious that the Air Jordan “Poster” Collection and other two sets, which are a nod to the moments that defined MJ’s career, will be hitting the shelves on the Jordan release dates 2016.
