You know summer is coming when Jordan Brand unveils their newest summer styles. To help we ranked our favorites, from top to bottom, as Jordan Brand brings back iconic colorways and re-imagines classic silhouettes in new stylish ways.
1. WHY NOT ZER0.1
Five new colorways of Russell Westbrook’s debut signature shoe drop this summer. Each details a unique element of Westbrook’s professional or personal life. Here’s our favorite, which is inspired by Westbrook’s son, Noah. The shoe features an emerald color, Noah’s birthstone and birthday on the inside strap. The red and black version, featured in the six pack of images at the top of this post, run a close second.
2. AIR JORDAN 1 SHADOW
It’s hard to beat a classic. Making its debut in 1985, this original colorway is highlighted with premium leather and classic details including the Wings logo and Nike Air branding.
3. AIR JORDAN XXXII LOW NEO HERITAGE
It’s so clean. Combing light bone, Infrared and soft suede upper details, this colorway perfectly balances the style and performance design aspects of the XXXII. A “Gordon St.” street sign is stitched on the inside of each tongue as a tribute to MJ’s childhood home.
4. AIR JORDAN XVIII TORO RED
We’re not sure we’re cool enough to pull these off, but man do they look great. This all-new Air Jordan 18 colorway uses original tooling with upgraded suede for a Chicago-inspired take on MJ’s last game shoe.
5. AIR JORDAN XXXII STEALTH
The texture and subtle use of color is brilliant. Using updated materials, this colorway represents MJ’s “Black Cat” persona and honors his championships with design details on the heel.
6. AIR JORDAN X DARK SHADOW
Celebrating 23 years of the Air Jordan X, the Dark Shadow colorway retros for the first time in classic form. Coming in the original AJX box, this pair features soft suede, tumbled leather and a reversed Jumpman logo on the heel to properly mirror the 1995 version.
