Jordans release date is set September 3 and the NBA legend’s fans are expected to troop to stores to get their latest shoes of Air Jordans.
Michael Jordan has been regarded as one of the greatest athletes in history and arguably the best basketball player of all time. He did not only gain popularity in the U.S. but also around the globe.
Although he has long been retired, his popularity continues to live on, not on the basketball court, but through his signature shoes. Every fan of the game knows how much MJ changed the world of basketball and one of his legacies is his signature Air Jordan shoes.
Jordans release date set Saturday
According to Sneakers Cartel, September of this year is proving to be a strong month for sneaker lovers and Air Jordan collectors. A solid lineup of three ‘Banned’ inspired Air Jordans will be out Sept. 3.
Air Jordan Trainer 1 Low, Air Jordan XXXI and Air Jordan 1 High OG are all part of the ‘Banned’ theme representing the original Air Jordan 1 in 1985 that got banned because of the NBA’s uniform rules which were in place at that time.
“The NBA fined Jordan $5,000 each time he wore the banned Nikes, but Nike was happy to pay it in exchange for the publicity,” as reported by Fox Sports.
The sneakers all flaunt black, red and white style with a bold text beneath their translucent soles that reads the word ‘Banned’. Aside from having the classic color and a theme inspired series, Trainer 1 Lows’ upper part showcases a unique elephant print together with a classic Air Jordan emblem in the outer mid-center of the shoe.
One the other hand, Air Jordan XXXI have a high-top vibe which shows both the Nike and Jordan brand logos while the Air Jordan 1 High OG sneakers give a more classic and simple touch.
If you consider yourself a sneakerhead, then expect long lines in front of outlet stores because these Air Jordans are deemed to be very much in demand.
