Released in July of 2016, the Air Jordan 5 OG ‘Metallic’ 2016 offers a remastered version of the OG colorway released back in 1990. A faithful reproduction of the original design, the sneaker features a Black nubuck upper with a reflective 3M tongue, Fire Red accents, an icy Blue outsole, and a ‘Nike Air’ logo on the heel. The Air Jordan 5 OG ‘Metallic’ sneaker was retro released in 2000, 2007, 2011, and now 2016.
The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Bred’ delivers a simplistic colorway of the minimalist lace-up, highlighted by a black Primeknit upper accented with a pronounced center seam and red SPLY-350 branding on the lateral quarter panel. A pull tab at the heel features crimson embroidered detailing for a secondary pop of color. The lightweight build is mounted on a full-length Boost midsole, wrapped in semi-translucent black rubber for added durability and support. The original launch date was February 11, 2017, with a restock release on December 5, 2020.
This inaugural colorway of Kanye West’s Yeezy Wave Runner 700 launched in November 2017, following a public debut earlier in the year as part of the Yeezy Season 5 runway show. The sneaker’s retro-inspired lines worked in tandem with a chunky silhouette reminiscent of an earlier era. A mesh base is finished in grey on the quarter panels and bright blue and teal on the forefoot. Suede overlays arrive on the toe and heel accented grey leather eyestays. Other details include neon green laces, a bulky white midsole, and pops of black and bright orange.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Turbo Green’ complements the silhouette’s clean lines with a classic two-tone design. A textured white leather base is contrasted by soft suede overlays in Turbo Green. The latter design element is burnished to give off a vintage aesthetic, a quality that’s further enhanced by a midsole finished in Off-White Sail. In addition to a woven Nike Air tongue tag in purple and yellow, exterior branding also includes a line of text at the base of the quarter panel that reads ‘SP 19 Air Jordan 1 High OG.’
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Crimson Tint’ showcases a simple two-tone design, executed on an all-leather build that incorporates both tumbled leather and smooth full-grain leather. The latter is used on the toe box, Swoosh, collar and heel panel, all finished in Crimson Tint. The black tumbled leather overlays are matched by black laces and a black nylon tongue, topped with a woven Nike tag.
The 2019 edition of the Air Jordan 4 ‘Bred’ celebrates the 30th anniversary of the classic silhouette, appearing in the same colorway that Michael Jordan wore when he sank ‘The Shot’ during the first round of the 1989 NBA playoffs. It’s rendered in a build that’s faithful to the original, complete with a black nubuck upper, visible Air Sole cushioning underfoot and Nike Air branding on the heel.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is a work of nostalgia, modernizing the 1985 icon's distinctive elements to honor Michael Jordan's legendary career arc. Debuted in August 2019, this 'Obsidian' version tributes MJ's college alma mater through a team-inspired, color block palette on the leather upper. Matching branding notes and Swooshes play their part in the homage. The Nike Air infused midsole and circular rubber outsole supply classic comfort and traction.
The Air Jordan 11 Retro 'Bred' 2019 brings back an original colorway initially debuted in 1995. The Tinker Hatfield-designed silhouette features Chicago Bulls colors, with black mesh on the upper sitting atop shiny black patent leather. A white midsole melds nicely with a translucent Varsity Red outsole, and is the same colorway that Michael Jordan wore during the 1996 NBA championship playoff run. This retro was distributed in December 2019 with OG detailing, including high-cut patent leather, signature Jumpman branding and MJ's number 23 stamped on the heel.
The 2020 edition of the Air Jordan 4 Retro 'Black Cat' brings back the all-black colorway of the classic silhouette, one that draws inspiration from one of Michael Jordan’s various nicknames. Like the original 2006 release, this pair makes use of a monochromatic black suede upper with a matching black midsole. Jumpman branding on the woven tongue tag is rendered in Light Graphite, representing the sneaker’s only contrasting design element.
