Sneakerheads may have already read about the fact that Nike is aiming to revolutionize women’s footwear and is striving for an innovative future. This year, Nike even released bras with adaptive technology and a Pro Hijab, to symbolize women empowerment. With Nike Unlaced, the sportswear brand will now be focusing more on its female demographic than it has ever in the past. Nike also announced that many of the Nike and Air Jordan releases 2018 will be available in extended women’s sizing. Apart from the Air Jordan 1 High Zip set to debut this month, Jordan Brand has also whipped up several other women’s exclusive colorways.
This year, Jordan Brand seems to have been taking an avid interest in modifying the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. Examples of this include the Double Strap and Zip variations. In case sneakerheads have not already figured it out though, the Air Jordan 1 High Zip is going to be a women’s-only release. This variation gets its name from the zipper that runs longitudinally down the each tongue. Additionally, it lacks the signature Nike “Swoosh” logos and features sideways “Nike Air” tongue tabs. Overall, it is arriving in an all-White colorway, with the exception of the Metallic Gold over the zipper and the Red over the tongue tabs.
The above Air Jordan 3 Retro and Air Jordan 11 Low colorways are also exclusively for women. Predominantly, the uppers of both sneakers are made up of Light Pink-colored suede. The Air Jordan 3 actually sports reconstructed uppers, with exposed stitching, pressed leather detailing and Rose Gold-colored accents. It also has all-White midsoles and outsoles. The mudguard of the Air Jordan 11 Low is also covered in lustrous Rose Gold. It is also equipped with all-White midsoles while its outsoles are covered in the same Light Pink hue. Both of these colorways are a part of Nike’s larger Unlaced project, which is being launched this month.
The Air Jordan 1 Zip will hit the shelves at select retailers like Rock City Kicks on March 8 and will retail at a price of $150. While there are no official release details about them, these women’s Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 11 colorways will also end up joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018.
