AJ 1s across its leather upper
The Infrared, which effectively started strong a legacy still on-going, has seen a number of Retro releases since its inception – the most recent of which took place not too long ago in February of 2019. Despite launching in 1985 at the inception of the Air Jordan line, the sneaker has since largely deviated from its original design. This neon-heavy mix of colors seems to work well with this modern, utility-driven approach to the Air Jordan 1 that was intended for use among those with physical challenges.
According to the available mock-up, the Air Jordan 6 Georgetown will feature a dark grey suede across its upper. A white base lays underneath in the same material, matching the midsole but not its tread nor the dark shade of the laces and tongue. It returned in the two original White Cement and Black Cement, while introducing two LS or Lifestyle models that boasted a Jumpman logo at the heel and leather panels in place of the netting.
And, with a subtle DNA touch, the breathable tongue is nod to another pioneering Nike running shoe, the Lunar Racer. Easily one of the best colorways of the AJ4 we’ve seen in a minute, this upcoming August release contains all the classy elements you’d want in a Jordan 4 Retro – even if it doesn’t have the Nike Air on the heel. Seemingly inspired by the original Air Jordan 1’s Royal ensemble from 1985, the upcoming retro opts for a two-tone arrangement AJ 1s across its leather upper.
In all seriousness, this upcoming Air Jordan 3 Retro for women captures the original 1988 colorway of Black and Cement Air Jordan Shoes Grey, but curiously adds a touch a gold on those aforementioned panels. The Chicago forward tells his personal story through his Freak 1 silhouette – printing Underdog on the inside of the tongue of his shoes, which represents how he felt he was under-recruited throughout his career.
Today’s weather – in New York City, at least – was one of the earliest signs of Spring, as the temperature finally reached just under 70 degrees. An Egyptian solar diety represented by the scarab beetle, Khepri, the god of creation, is associated with resurrection – explicitly known for rolling the sun above the horizon each morning and carrying it through the other world after sunset.
Compared to its last appearance in 2013, this pair thankfully forgoes the Jumpman logo at the rear. In the Mount Rushmore of footwear sits the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, which is as identifiable as it is Air Jordan 1 Mid legendary. Fast is the focus with these training and racing shoes that are designed to meet the needs of every runner – from world-class marathoners to those who just want to log I-feel-amazing miles on the weekends.
