Jordan Brand has officially revealed its Spring 2021 retro collection. Building upon the ethos of its Holiday 2020 retro collection by blending bringbacks of classic colorways with new takes on beloved silhouttes, the 11-shoe slate offers up fresh Air Jordan 1s, familiar Air Jordan 3s and Air Jordan 5s plus much more.
Unquestionably the Jumpman’s most ubiquitous silhouette of the last several years, the Air Jordan 1 appears in a trio of makeups. First is the “University Blue,” which provides a nod to Michael Jordan‘s collegiate days with the UNC Tar Heels thanks to its masterful use of light blue accents — all laid out in an Air Jordan 1 “Chicago”-esque color scheme. Next up is a silver-equipped style, drawing from the metallic nature of the popular Air Jordan 1 “Gold Toe,” but swapping out patent leather for a shimmering, crinkled silver material. It’s a women’s makeup but will be available in an extended size run. Finally, a crisp “Sail” pair with black trim, “Volt/University Gold accents” and a new tongue tag offers an energetic interpretation of the AJ1’s classic ethos.
