Pastel Patent Leather is Highlighted on the Air Jordan 11 Low "Pure Violet" 

With the Air Jordan 11, Jordan Brand will typically save retro bring backs and high-cut releases for the winter time, but the Spring and Summer seasons are when the Air Jordan 11 Low usually gets its moments to shine. In the coming months, the Beaverton sportswear brand will be shining a light on the lifestyle model by rolling out a “Pure Violet” colorway.

Its overall design here leans on the model’s customary two-toned palette, and converges hues that are both neutrals and pastel together. Heightened parts of the kicks are materialized with white mesh and leather materials, the former of which is evident through the tongues and side panels while the latter is seen towards the heels. Rope laces, interior lining and the insoles also follow suit with their angelic exteriors. “Pure Violet” then take center stage as they wrap the patent leather mudguards, miniature Jumpman logos on the heels and Jordan insignias on the footbeds. Midsoles are left with a colorless look and ride on top of an outsole that also comes tinted with a “Pure Violet” tone.

Fat Joe Walks Out in an Iridescent Never-Before-Seen Air Jordan 3 "Space Hippie"

All eyes are on the 2022 NBA All-Star festivities as players and attendees suit up in a wide array of styles which includes Fat Joe stepping on court with a never-before-seen Air Jordan 3. The New York City rapper has been known for his sneaker game back in the 90s and 00s and is now back with a fresh pair that definitely stands out from the rest.

Dubbed as the “Space Hippie,” these Jordan 3 samples resemble that of a metallic spacesuit with silver leather uppers and iridescent toe and heel mudguards done in the classic elephant print. The heel and tongue showcase the same rainbow effects of an oil slick with an easter egg and Tinker Hatfield’s signature when seen up close. A sleek strip of black is layered over a white midsole and finished off with a Crater outsole to give the shoe the same sustainability treatment as the series its name suggests.

The Air Jordan 3 Crater “Space Hippie” may just be a sample pair specially made for Fat Joe until the Jumpman says otherwise.

Detailed Look at the Air Jordan 5 "Jade Horizon"

Throughout the Spring 2022 season, Jordan Brand will be blessing its fans with a slew of new retro releases, one being the Air Jordan 5 “Jade Horizon” colorway. This elevated variation of the 1990 silhouette first surfaced onto the scene towards the latter end of Summer 2021, but now we have a detailed look at all of its striking details and special packaging.

Top halves of this impending offering come styled with luxe color-blocking. The shoes’ “Jade Horizon” hue takes charge here as it swathes the smooth leather that makes up the toe boxes, collars, mid-foot panels and lower heels. Tongues contrast with a very faint shade of baby blue while the eye stays and tint of the lace toggles appear with a vintage yellow effect. Moving southbound, the midsoles do their best “Black Metallic” impression as they appear with black backdrops and gray spiky molds that are decorated with black splattered patterns. Treading also comes fashioned with an aged look as they are also dialed to a yellow hue.

In a similar fashion to the Union x Air Jordan 1 capsule, these kicks will come packaged in a shoebox that’s decorated with a collage of throwback Jordan images. Early reports have these slated to release on March 25 for $190 USD.
