What up folks, I am jacques Slade and today Jordan Brand revealed a new collection of footwear for Spring 2016. The collection features everything from the Air Jordan 1 to the Air J0rdan 12, and they are separated into three collection, the Poster Collection, the The Alternate Collection, and the Dunk from Above collection. Let’s talk some kicks.
First up is the Poster Collection. As you can imagine, this collection is inspired by 2 iconic images of Jordan and features the Air Jordan 2 and the Air Jordan 12. Lets start with the Jordan 2. This model is basically black and white and features the words “Wing It” on the heel tag as a tribute to the original Jordan 2 Wing It campaign poster back in 1986. The second pair in that collection is the Air Jordan 12 “The Master”. This one also pulls from a campaign poster and looks to take inspiration directly from Mike’s shirt as the shoe is in all black. The touch of gold on the eyelets is a nice detail in case you missed it. ?
The second part of the Spring 2016 look is probably my favorite of the bunch and it is called the Alternate Collection. This collection features the Air Jordan II, the Air Jordan IV, and the Air Jordan V Low. The inspiration for this collection is the modern day Player Exclusive and what Jordan’s footwear would look like today. All three pairs are based in Chicago based team colors black and red or white and red and they have updated names to match. The AIr Jordan II is the 87, the Jordan IV is the ‘89, and the Jordan V Low is the ‘90. Jordan Designers even through “Alternate 89” on the reverse of the heel pull on the Jordan IV. Love the attention to detail. Those fours are easily one of my favorites.
Next up is “The Dunk From Above” collection. Which features the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau, another Air Jordan IV, and another Air Jordan V Low. Using Soar as the theme of the collection, Jordan Brand took inspiration from Aviator glasses for the color changing Nike Swoosh on the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau. According to Nike, the Nouveau is the first shoe in the Jordan Brand franchise to features the wings logo. The Air Jordan IV, which introduced the word “Flight” into the Jordan Brand lexicon is definitely one of my favorite colorways in the pack. That gum bottom mixed with the navy upper is a win in my book. Finally the Air Jordan V Low, which is a chopped version of the Mid that was inspired by a fighter jet from World War II, uses a white leather base with navy and gold as the accents.
Of course the big question is pricing and Jordan Brand has not revealed that information yet. I reached out to the brand for some details, but as of the posting of this video, there has not been any concrete information. However, if we are going to speculate, the prices have been going up and my thought is that they would hit the $200 marker with the lows coming in at $180. Again that is all speculation. The prices could very well stay the same as they are now at $190 for the Mid and $170 for the Low. My hope is that the prices stay the same, but you never know.
The QOTV is easy, which pair is your favorite? For me, I am trying to decide between the Jordan 4s, and I think the Dunk From Above Jordan 4 is going to take the cake. Let me know your favorites in the comments down below. I am your host Jacques Slade and this is everything you need to know about the Spring 2016 Jordan Collection, and as always, I appreciate you, I’ll see you soon, peace.
