Over the past decade or so, Jordan Brand have become more focused on function and performance. However, the Jumpman have also begun catering to sneakerheads who prefer to make a fashion statement with their footwear. After having dominated the world of basketball, Jordan Brand had eventually established their presence in the lifestyle footwear market too with the Air Jordan Future. It is likely that the Jumpman will keep on continuing the Air Jordan lineup for years even though Michael Jordan retired ages ago. However, it also seems that they are spend time on whipping up new colorways for lifestyle models like the Jordan Horizon.
The Air Jordan Future really was the future of Air Jordan footwear and the silhouette came armed with plenty of hype, so much so that Jordan Brand even crafted a low-top form. However, the Jordan Horizon has not been as fortunate, considering that Air Jordan fans have not paid as much attention to the Horizon as much as they did in the case of the Jordan Future. Perhaps that will all change once this new premium Jordan Horizon iteration hits the shelves. This revamped and upgraded Horizon rendition that sports a never-before-seen aesthetic was recently previewed by Instagram user @realchickenwop.
This new, luxurious version of the Jordan Horizon features uppers made up black leather embossed with croc skin texture all over it. This faux croc skin construction really does allow the silhouette to boast a premium aesthetic. In fact, it is the true definition of an all-black sneaker since even the soles are covered in the ominous hue. The only other hue, i.e. red, is not visible directly and can only be viewed upon taking a look beneath the soles.
As of right now, it is being rumored that this Jordan Horizon colorway could be a result of a collaboration or that it is will be a part of the Pinnacle series. Whatever the case, Jordan Brand has not revealed anything as of yet, including a potential release date.
