To mark the Air Jordan 7’s 23rd anniversary, Jordan Brand is set to release the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Hare.” The “Hare Jordan” commercial, which aired in February 1992 and featured Bugs Bunny in a pair of custom sneakers, helped kick-start the colorway’s popularity, eventually spurring the creation of Space Jam. Last released as part of a countdown pack in 2008, sneakerheads had hoped it would make its solo debut someday. They will get their wish when this retro lands this weekend, at Air Jordan stockists.
Introducing the Air Jordan Element 11Lab4. The Jordan LAB series got its start with Jordan Brand taking the elephant print from the Air Jordan 3 and covering the Air Jordan 5 with it.
Probably the most defining element on the Air Jordan XI is its dapper application of patent leather. Taking that defining element, Jordan Brand covers the Air Jordan 4 with patent leather. The colour choice is black, which covers the design with the exception of white on the heel of the midsole. Elegant and ready for dressy occasions.
The almighty, success driven Jordan brand has done it again, they are bring us what they call “Future” or rightly named, Air Jordan Future. Now I’ll be honest, the first images of this sneaker, had me like no way, I don’t like that. But now that the brand has released official images prior to it’s March 15th release, I have to say, my opinion has changed dramatically. This is a luxury looking sneaker, and a fine looking one at that. The Jumpman brand have done away with a leather upper for this sneaker, and have given it the woven material treatment. They say that this creation is “symbiotic relationship between the court and the street”. The Future silhouette is designed with an Air Jordan XI sole with a chukka style upper, complete with an asymmetrical lace-up system.
Jordan Brand’s description of the sneaker says:
With a carbon fiber plate and full-length air outsole, the Jordan Future offers lightweight comfort and cushioning. Enhancing the minimalist nature of the shoe, the deconstructed upper foregoes a heel counter and toe enforcer. The asymmetrical lacing reduces pressure across the top of the foot, while the suede interior and ankle collar enhance comfort.
The release date for the Jordan Future is Saturday 15th March, and the colour ways they have shown us are that of the Black / Glow OR Black/ Infrared version. In my opinion, I will purchase one for sure, something different and as the name says, it’s looking ahead to the Future, not trying to recreate the OG colourways and designs that so many sneaker heads would like to see protected, and remain as classics with no re-productions.
So it’s looking like the holiday season will be packed with heat coming from the Jumpman brand. There are images of a Air Jordan 11 nickname “Gamma Blue” doing the rounds. Along with the Air Jordan 11 Taxi being released this winter, it would seem that the Jumpman brand will be dropping this new colour way for the masses. No release information has been posted out officially by Nike, but the early birds are taking orders, and the chinese whispers are heating up about this release.

After months of previews and speculation a release date for the Air Jordan 4 Retro entry to the Fear Pack is known. The often times Oreo dubbed colourway is expected to release on the 24th of August.
So it’s 7 days until the supposed end of the world, and seems many are on some end of the world hype. The only hype I’m following is the release of the Jordan 11 BRED’s which are scheduled for release on December 21st. These sneakers are iconic, not just because they are another Jordan brand release, but the history behind them, and the championship that Michael Jordan lead his team to makes these a special release indeed. So the question is, where will you be on Friday 21st December 2012?
