Travis Scott, whose Midas touch has led to Nike x Off-White more than a handful of sought after sneakers, infused his own personal style into the model back in Fall of 2019. New Jordans have become a given since 1985, when the Air Jordan line was unofficially introduced. From the Air Jordan 1 to the latest Air Jordan 35, Jordan Brand has built a strong legacy predicated on the legendary Michael Jordan.
The tongue, however, swaps the reflective silver from the original in place of a sporty and breathable white jersey mesh, while the lacelock is made of an opaque safety orange. A familiar name – as the Paris storefront joined Edison Chen, Melody Ehsani, Off-White x Air Max 90 and many others for the FEARLESS ONES – Maison Chateau Rouge is taking a different approach with the Air Jordan 2. The Luka 1 is designed for the deceptive, off-speed play of Luka Doni, featuring a new IsoPlate system with full-length Formula 23 performance foam in the midsole.
Elite athlete feedback played a huge role in revamping the already incredibly successful system that increases running economy. The pack includes an inverted color scheme of the original Air Max 90 Duck Camo shoe, and an Air Max 2090 with the duck camo print peeking Nike Off White out of a translucent-layered upper. A FlyEase cage on the heel flexes, collapses and rebounds for stepping into the shoe hands-free.
In all seriousness, this upcoming Air Jordan 3 Retro for women captures the original 1988 colorway of Black and Cement Grey, but curiously adds a touch a gold on those aforementioned panels. The model had a bigger Air unit than its predecessors, as well as improved flexibility and a variable, multi-port lacing system that allowed more fit options. While we may feel a bit deprived of AJ1s, there will be a big wave of OG 1s coming this summer 2022 – one of which being this Stage Haze colorway.
