Since its inception in 1984, Jordan Brand has continued to churn out release after release that has exceeded the expectations of fans and managed to invite new consumers into the world of sneakers. 2020 by itself has been a stand-out year for the brand. From the Dior x Air Jordan 1 to the Off White x Air Jordan 5, this year has been filled with releases that make the list of most memorable sneakers.
Thankfully, Jordan Brand shows no signs of slowing down in 2021 as several pairs have already been rumored to release. In anticipation of an exciting year, we’ve compiled a list of five Jordan pairs we can expect to hit the shelves quite soon.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG
Likely to be one of the best sneaker releases of 2021 across all categories, the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG is founded upon the classic Air Jordan 1 “Chicago”. Thanks to Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus, the iconic silhouette has been reimagined through a collaboration between Trophy Room and Nike. The product of this collaboration is a white leather upper pair accompanied by red overlays bearing a glittery finish. Make sure to keep your eye out for this sneaker as it is rumored to be released in limited quantity!
Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi OG
Adding to the list of Air Jordan 1s coming in 2020, Jordan Brand is set to release the Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi OG in a UNC colorway. Donning the iconic light blue in the ankle, heel, toe, and outsole and white on the quarter panel, midsole, tongue, and toe box, this sneaker is set to be an instant classic for new sneakerheads. Adding extra flare, the pair showcases a black Wings logo with University Blue branding on the tongue.
Air Jordan 3 Retro
The last time this pair saw a release was way back in 2007. After about 14 years, the silhouette will make use of the same Sport Red and Orange Peel detailing on the tongue, eyelets, Air bag, and heel tab. Not only does this sneaker cater to aesthetics, but quality as well with the use of genuine leather for the upper, elephant print overlays on the forefoot and heel, and a matte-finished midsole.
Air Jordan 4 Retro
UNC Jordan silhouette fans will definitely be thrilled to know that 2021 has more than one UNC sneaker in-store. The Air Jordan 4 Retro will be making use of University Blue genuine suede leather on the upper, OG mesh netting on the quarter panel, and tongue bottom as well as the iconic cement splatter on the midsole, heel tabs, and wings.
Air Jordan 13 Retro
At first glance, the Air Jordan 13 Retro pays homage to the well-known shattered backboard colorway. Utilizing Starfish Orange and white tones, the sneaker provides an interesting amount of contrast between its different panels. Staying true to the Air Jordan 13 details, the sneaker boasts of a panther paw-like outsole and holographic cat’s eye.
