Hybrid models have become increasingly popular within the Air Jordan series. With models utilizing materials from the sneakers, and mash ups of different models that come together onto one silhouette, there’s no telling how many new hybrids will release soon. The Jordan Son of Mars is an interesting sneaker that blends popular Air Jordan sneakers together.


Inspired by the classic Air Jordan 5 is this Jordan Son of Mars Fire Red colorway that will be debuting this Spring 2017. Dressed in a White, Fire Red, Black color scheme. This Jordan Son of Mars is highlighted by its tongue and outsole that mimics the “Fire Red” Air Jordan 5. Other details include an all-White leather and perforated upper with Black detailing and Fire Red accents.

Jordan Brand and Spike Lee have a long-standing relationship based on the iconic commercials directed by the Brooklynite and starring his Mars Blackmon character and Michael Jordan. The ‘It’s Gotta Be The Shoes’ slogan helped sell some of the first Jordan signature models and Spike was rewarded with a number of hybrid silhouettes that combined the first numbered models advertised in the legendary TV spots. The Jordan Son of Mars features inspirations from the Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 5, Air Jordan 6, and Air Jordan 20 and will release in a new “Fire Red” colorway in a full family size run on February 1st, 2017.The Jordan Son of Mars Fire Red takes a simple approach with the Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” immediately coming to mind. A white base is accented by Pure Platinum elephant print, an icy outsole, and touches of black and Fire Red throughout. Borrowing the nickname ‘Fire Red’, this Jordan Son of Mars is dressed in White, Fire Red and Black color combination. The tongue along with the outsole mimics the iconic ‘Fire Red’ Air Jordan 5, hence the nickname. In addition, the base features predominate White leather with perforations and subtle designs on the strap. Elephant print is used around the toe and heel while Fire Red and Black accents are displayed. Finishing the look is a translucent outsole.
The Jordan Son Of Mars. You either hate them or love them. If you happen to fall in the latter category, we’re here to let you know that a brand new colorway of the model is set to make its debut in a few days. Known as the Jordan Son Of Mars Armory Navy, let’s get a closer look. This Jordan Son Of Mars comes in an official colorway listed as Armory Navy, White, Wolf Grey and Electrolime. Features on the shoe include the graphic print on the mid-foot strap, the elephant print overlay on the heel and toe and the bold Electrolime accents that help contrast the Navy upper very nicely. A clean White midsole balances things out a bit. Jordan Brand’s Jordan Son of Mars model was birthed from the Spizike, which was originally inspired by the all the Jordan shoes made in collaboration with famous urban director Spike Lee. This release comes dressed in a Armory Navy, White, Wolf Grey and Electrolime color scheme. Featuring it’s classic graphic print on the mid-foot strap, with elephant print overlay that’s highlighted by contrasting Electrolime accents. The Jordan Son of Mars which combines various Air Jordan Retro models will have a few releases in 2017 including the pair shown which is dressed in Armory Navy, White, Wolf Grey and Electrolime. Across the uppers we have Navy done in nubuck while elephant print wraps the toe and heel. Following is Electrolime which hits the Jumpman on the tongue and outsole. Other highlights include Wolf Grey accents and a partial White midsole.

Jordan Fly Wade Shoes

Now available at Jordan Brand retailers is the latest colorway of Dwyane Wade’s updated signature silhouette, the Fly Wade 2 EV. A look tailor-made for a potential trip to the 2012 NBA Finals, the kicks feature a Metallic Gold Coin/White-Black colorway with a black and gold upper and hits of white on the Flywire, Jumpman branding, Wade logo and outsole. Joining the Club Purple/White-Black-Spark colorway of the Jordan Fly Wade 2 EV next month is this Metallic Gold Coin/Black-White colorway of the kicks.


Decked out in metallic gold this time around, the kicks see white on the outsole, Flywire, Jumpman logo and tongue branding while black accents appear on the upper, tongue, laces and lining. Jordan Brand is ramping up for the NBA Finals as a new Metallic Gold Coin version of the Jordan Fly Wade 2 EV has just hit the web. For those that don’t know, the NBA does not allow their athletes to wear gold on their shoes until they actually make it to the finals. Considering the way Dwyane Wade has been playing the last few nights, we just may see him rocking these in a couple weeks. Featuring a metallic gold coin over the upper, the model rests on black for the laces, tongue and liner.
A flashy finish transcends playing style on the Jordan Fly Wade 2 EV “Metallic Gold Coin”. Black Flywire provides the base for a gold wrapped upper, set above a clean white outsole. Look for this Dwyane Wade signature to launch this June. Dwyane Wade dropped 41 points to advance to the Conference Finals and now here is a look at the new Jordan Fly Wade 2 EV “Metallic Gold Coin”. Using a Black Flywire base with Metallic Gold upper, White branding and outsole. Although, this isn’t the Gold that D. Wade initially wants but we can expect to see these drop this June ’12.
If the Miami Heat advance to the NBA Finals, it’s fair to assume that we’ll see this golden colorway of the Fly Wade 2 EV on the court. Perhaps the line’s answer to the Nike Basketball Elite Series, this Fly Wade features a metallic gold and black Hyperfuse-constructed upper, supported by Flywire restraints on the side panels. White fills in Wade’s logo on the tongue, Jumpman branding and outsole to complete the look.
A “Miami Nights” colorway of the Fly Wade II EV? Nothing is official on that front, but the newest look for Dwyane Wade’s postseason kicks carries a vibe similar to that of the “Miami Nights” LeBron 9. This pair features a Club Purple and black Hyperfuse upper, helped by white on the Wade tongue logo, Jumpman branding and sole. Giving the shoe a little Miami flavor are hits of Spark Pink on the laces, Flywire panels and Jumpman branding on the outsole. First is this Club Purple/White-Black-Spark colorway. Definitely an unorthodox look for Wade’s playoff update, the kicks see a predominately purple upper with black accents, a white outsole and branding hits and bright pink on the laces and Flywire. Earlier today we showed you what is undoubtedly the best Fly Wade 2 EV (or perhaps Fly Wade period) colorway ever. The Metallic Gold Coin matte finish worked wonders with the seamless appeal of the Fly Wade 2 EV, and the sneaker model itself, which hasn’t garnered the attention as much as, say, a LeBron or KD, received a ton of praise for the selection of color. There’s another Fly Wade 2 EV goodie for June – this Club Purple/Spark colorway that captures that original ‘Raptors’ crest using the two-toned colorway with Black and White hits around the shoe. Certainly a punchier, neon effect achieved with these, but are these better than the Fly Wade 2 ‘Gold Coin’?

Jordan Flight 45 Shoes

Available right now courtesy of Nikestore is this pair of “USC” Jordan Flight 45 High’s. With the new NCAA football season in full swing, this pair of Jordan Flight 45 High’s will surely make any fan of the Trojans extremely happy. Sporting a clean cardinal and gold color scheme, this pair of kicks as we already mentioned is available for purchase right now. Now that NCAA Football is back in full effect, you can definitely expect an uptick in the amount of sneaker colorways looking suspiciously like PEs for various universities. If we had to make a guess on this Jordan Flight 45 High we’d go with “USC”, as the pair has that cardinal and gold feel to it. For what it’s worth we’re pretty sure none of the other PAC-12 schools could ever catch up to Oregon in terms of specially colored Jordans, but this pair should satisfy Trojans for the time being.


Jordan Brand has just launched a brand new Jordan Flight 45 High in the USC Trojan colors. This new colorway features a Burgundy base with Yellow accents and a Black strap sitting atop a White midsole. You can now purchase these at select JB accounts.
One of Jordan Brand’s less recognized models has just hit NIKEiD with hopes of sneakerheads customizing it for their 30th year anniversary. The Jordan Flight 45 High is now available for you to put your own twist on. We understand that many people may not be fans of this JB silhouette but there are people who do like this sneaker. So remember rock what you like not what everyone else is wearing. You can place a variety of textures/prints on this Flight 45 that include elephant print, a premium color availability and pearly finishes.
Jordan Brand accounts in September are these colorways in the Jordan Flight 45 TRK. The shoe is an upgraded version of the Flight 45, making them Fall / Winter ready. The newly-incorporated features makes the shoe more durable and able to endure the upcoming months. The official colorways include Velvet Brown/Khaki-Dark Copper, Black/Vivid Pink-Anthracite-Imperial Blue, Cool Grey/Cool Grey-Obsidian, and Black/Black-City Grey.
In case you haven’t heard, summer is OVER! With that being said, you are sure to see companies begin releasing fall / winter collections, and with that being said, take a look at this new colorway in the Jordan Flight 45 TRK. Just to recap, the TRK version is fall / winter ready. You can even go further and say it’s Jordan Brand’s answer to Nike’s ACG series. This version of the shoe features a predominantly black design along with anthracite inserts. The overall somber look is given some depth with vibrant vivid pink and imperial blue accents, which are scattered throughout.

Jordan Fusion Shoes

Jordan Brand unleashed the Air Jordan Fusion 8 in an abundance of colorways throughout the first half, however, tomorrow marks the initial release of the Air Jordan Fusion 12. Obviously, the Air Jordan Fusion 12 borrows some of its design cues from MJ’s 12 signature sneaker, the Air Jordan XII. Specifically, the stitched-panel upper is the most noticeable inspiration from this Fusion’s predecessor. Yet, it also contains characteristics of its own such as the ankle strap. As for this colorway, black nubuck and textured leather make up most of the upper, while Blue Sapphire stitching graces the nubuck sections. Lastly, a Cyber-stitched swoosh provides a nice complimentary color accent. 
Some of you have had enough of the Fusion models, but Jordan Brand will launch again the Air Jordan Fusion 12 this summer. Although the hybrid Jordans can get tiresome, the 12’s actually sold well when originally released. The new colorway at hand features Black/Blue Sapphire-Cyber, while the contrast stitching gives them a solid look.


Though Jordan Brand is in the process of winding down their Air Jordan “Fusion” collection, they still have a couple more colorways of the AJF8 to release. This pair is obviously inspired by the “Playoffs” Air Jordan 8, and thus hosts a black nubuck upper with varsity red accents on the outsole, tongue, and rear pattern and flint grey accents on the Air Force 1 midsole.
No other shoe in recent Jordan Brand history has received an equal amount of acclaim and hatred like the Air Jordan Force Fusions have. Jordan purists stayed away and chastised the designers, while Air Force 1 lovers and those with an open mind (particular the younger generation) embraced the hybridization of these two iconic kicks. The AJF series now reaches the Air Jordan VIII, and it contains all the features that made the 8s a standout, with it’s criss-crossed instep strap, fuzzy emblem on the tongue, and paint-streak design above the midsole. The Air Jordan Fusion 12 has been spotted in an all new colorway set for late summer.? The latest installment of the newly-designed Fusion features a black suede and leather upper complemented by blue sapphire and cyber contrast stitching?

Jordan Spizike Shoes

Riding alongside other ‘Soar’ releases at the end of the month, Jordan Brand has a pair of the Spizike planned to drop. Unfortunately the Jordan Spizike GS ‘Soar’ will be a kids exclusive. Through the base is where your soar blue will land. Following is Copa which is a lighter shade of blue that is used on the outsole, eyelets, Jumpman logo, lace lock and speckled across the black midsole. The last touch is black filling in the elephant print, tongue, mesh and liner.


The Air Jordan Spizike is expected to receive another GS iteration this season, as the most recent notable release consisted of the Wolf Grey rendition for men’s. With a first preview image showcased, the sneaker incorporates a predominantly Blue build. Nubuck overlays comprises the upper composition, while elephant leather overlays across the heel and toe cap provide a subtle contrasting touch. Offset with Black accents gracing the tongue, eyelets, laces, vamp and heel tab, slight speckling is also seen across the midsole unit. In addition, lighter hits of Blue adorn the outsole, lace lock and upper eyelet component to round out its vibrant composition.
Jordan Brand will be introducing another Jordan Spizike colorway for the month of October, with the debut of this kids exclusive Jordan Spizike GS “Soar” colorway. Dressed in a Soar, Copa and Black color scheme. The shoe features an all-Soar Blue base upper with shades of Light Blue hitting the lace lock, Jumpman logo, eyelets, speckled hitting the Black midsole and outsole. Other details include Black detailing covering the traditional elephant print, tongue, mesh and liner.
The Air Jordan Spizike is arguably one of the best Jordan hybrid models Jordan Brand has ever released. Although it utilizes many features and characteristics of Jordan retro models, it still manages to create a look of its own. With that being said, we’re here to let you know that the OG colorway, the Air Jordan Spizike Cement is expected to make a return this Summer. The Air Jordan Spizike Cement comes in a White leather upper contrasted by the Grey on the mudguard, elephant print on the toe and heel and Red on the lining, sole unit, heel branding and honeycomb eyelets. Granted, the Spizike is not as popular as it was back when it made its debut in 2016, but we’re pretty sure a handful of readers will be happy to hear about this OG colorway making a return.
The most popular Air Jordan hybrid model of all time is back once again this fall, as the Jordan Spiz’ike returns to the shelves in a clean white and navy colorway. The new, high-contrast color block with dark blue for most of the upper and white at its base seems a bit more grown-up looking than most previous Spiz’ike colorways, perhaps because of the solid white toe and heel paneling that’s usually reserved for the iconic elephant print pattern. Spiz’ike fans can look forward to this striking new colorway to hit select Jordan Brand retailers later this fall.

Jordan 31 Shoes

Check out the Air Jordan 31 Fine Print. Any guesses as to what the inspiration behind this Fine Print colorway is? Jordan takes it way back for this latest inspiration the Jordan 31. How back do they take it, you say? All the way back to the exact moment when the young rookie (Michael Jordan) signed his contract with Nike. Coming in a Black and White upper, the colors on the shoe are meant to represent the colors seen on the document/contract: White paper, Black ink. Aside from the two-toned look on the shoe, there are also minimal hits of Wolf Grey strategically placed all around the shoe. A cool feature on the shoe lies on the outsole, as Michael Jordan’s John Hancock can be seen in Black to complete the theme of the shoe.


Jordan Brand’s celebration of their latest signature silhouette, the Air Jordan 31, is also a celebration of Michael Jordan’s first model. Not only did they start things off with a bang thanks to a “Banned” inspiration based on the iconic Air Jordan 1 colorway, but this September 17th, a brand new pair will be releasing that celebrates what started MJ’s legendary partnership with Nike in the fist place – a contractual obligation. While that might not seem like the most ideal inspiration behind a new colorway, Jordan Brand takes a luxurious approach to the first contract Mike ever signed with Nike, as the Air Jordan 31 Fine Print features premium black leather, a woven Flyweave upper that dons both a gradient Nike Swoosh and white Jumpman branding, and an icy outsole featuring Michael Jordan’s iconic signature.The first contract Michael Jordan ever signed with Nike went into effect on October 24th, 1984 before he even donned a Chicago Bulls jersey in a regular season game. The simple, understated black and white upper is inspired by the stark paper and print on the contract while the icy outsole bares MJ’s signature in all its oversized glory. A premium leather finish finds its way onto the heel construction in honor of the Air Jordan 1 while the medial side sports embossed Wings branding to bring things back to 1985.
The Air Jordan XXX1 is already around the corner and has a scheduled release date for Summer which is way before many of us thought they would launch. Back in January, Tinker Hatfield who has crafted the Air Jordan XXX1 has already stated the shoe is designed and are already working on the 32. He had also mentioned that the Air Jordan XXX was a rush job, the reasoning behind the similarities to the previous model.
The Air Jordan XXX1 ‘Brazil’ is the latest Air Jordan XXX1 to leak which will be apart of Jordan Brand’s Olympic releases. As well, there is also a USA themed Air Jordan XXX1. Looking closer, this Air Jordan XXX1 features shades of Blue and Green through the base that represents Brazil, where the 2016 Olympic Games are being held. In addition to the Green to Blue gradient across the base, the brand has used a White midsole and translucent outsole. Other details include a subtle Swoosh and a White Jumpman by the heel. Alongside the inaugural Banned colorway, the newly-introduced Air Jordan 31 will be offered in two other variations this season as a tribute to the 2016 Summer Olympics. Particularly paying homage to the host nation, Brazil, the basketball silhouette is treated in the country’s traditional Rio colors with vibrant green and blue predominant across the flyweave and synthetic leather upper. Offset with a crisp white midsole unit and icy translucent outsole, a USA-themed iteration of the model is also introduced, as it’ll be worn by both Carmelo Anthony and Jimmy Butler throughout the Olympics.
Jordan Brand just released a Team USA image today, which unveiled the Air Jordan XXX1 USA colorway on the feet of Carmelo Anthony and Jimmy Butler. The Air Jordan XXX1 is inspired by the Air Jordan 1, which includes Nike Swooshes on the side panels. This release is dressed in the traditional USA colors of Red, White and Blue. They’ll be worn throughout the Summer Olympics by both brand athletes Jimmy Butler and Carmelo Anthony. The first official colorway of the Air Jordan XXX1 to debut will be the “Bred” version that drops on September 3rd. The Air Jordan XXX1 ‘USA’ was spotted on the feet of team members Jimmy Butler and Carmelo Anthony. We have also learned they will release at Jordan Brand retailers during August. For those that don’t know, the Air Jordan XXX1 features elements and overall inspiration from the Air Jordan 1. Although appearing modern, the Nike Swooshes shown on the panels pin-points to the (now brands) early days. For the Olympic edition, you will see Jordan Brand team members like Carmelo Anthony and Jimmy Butler wearing them on the court. Recently released at the Brooklyn Bowl in Vegas, was the “Olympic” Air Jordan XXX1 and the “Tinker Alternate” Air Jordan 7. The shoe comes dressed in the traditional Team USA colors of Red, White and Blue and includes some original detail as a nod to the Air Jordan 1.

Jrodan 30 Shoes

Exactly when the Air Jordan XXX design journey began is up for debate. Arguments could be made for February 17, 1963, Michael Jordan’s birthday — or October 24, 1984, the day his Airness signed with Nike. There’s also April 1, 1985, when his first signature shoe hit market and February 6, 1988, the date he soared solo in Chicago as he debuted the Air Jordan III. There’s a litany of moments — game-winning shots, personal triumphs and titles — that form the Jordan legacy. But to dissect the journey is to miss the forest for the trees. The Air Jordan XXX is a unique synthesis of Jordan’s evolution as a player and a design collaborator. An “XXX”, signifying 30, transformed into a basketball net. Stars symbolized the athlete’s otherworldly talents and planets orbiting the Jordan universe took on surfaces — elephant print or carbon fiber — related to innovations initiated by past Jordan models. Elaborating his drawing, with help of fellow designer Mark Smith, Hatfield broadened the Jordan narrative and formed the story of the Air Jordan XXX, one that references a storied yet timeless lineage with an eye towards the future.


The Air Jordan XXX has officially been unveiled. Can you believe it’s been just over 30 years since Michael Jordan donned his debut signature sneaker, the Air Jordan I? A lot has changed since that original high-top silhouette was introduced to the world. Jordan Brand as an entity has gone out and altered the way we look at and think about basketball shoes thanks to those sweet, creative vibes that innovators like Peter Moore, Mark Smith and Tinker Hatfield have brought to the table.
Melding casual wear without losing focus in the performance department, each and every one of these kicks has helped turn the Air Jordan line into a perennial powerhouse. Now, without apologies, the company has gone out and introduced the coveted Air Jordan XXX—the latest release to come with the Jumpman moniker attached to the shoe.

The Air Jordan XXX starts and finishes with a performance-driven, woven upper. This is a natural continuation for the brand, considering the XX9 was such a home run in terms of wearability. With the XXX, you get a shoe that’s even lighter than its predecessor, and who doesn’t love that? To go along with that avenue of thinking, it’s important to note that the XXX is coming out at a time when mesh-based and woven kicks are making a heavy impact. Take the Adidas Ultra Boost for example. That shoe—among others—has taken the industry by storm. Another critical element basketball players will love when it comes to this shoe is that the Air Jordan XXX will feature a FlightSpeed-based midsole. For those unfamiliar, that technology provides an extra coat of responsiveness and cushioning that can actually be felt when you’re moving around.
The FlightSpeed-based midsole isn’t just another randomly named piece of technology consumers will get confused about. It actually matters. Combine all of that with an updated traction system, and what you have is a sneaker that is well prepared to shatter expectations. Those who wanted Jordan Brand to make a return toward “older” silhouettes could be disappointed by this release. But the point of advancing sneaker culture isn’t focusing on what has worked—we have retro releases for that. It’s about building and crafting the future. Jordan Brand is a company that strives to give athletes everywhere the very best product.
Conversing about the shoe’s aesthetics, the Air Jordan XXX clearly was focused on adding futuristic elements. It builds on the basic look of the XX9, enhancing various areas using complex woven patterns. Anyone with an athletic-driven state of mind will appreciate the pure, unfiltered craftsmanship Hatfield and Smith put forth with this sneaker. And in terms of NBA athletes playing in these kicks, look out for Oklahoma City Thunder guard—and Jordan Brand advocate—Russell Westbrook to be the first.
The results of this novel approach are represented by five of the Air Jordan XXX’s key components:

1. HEIGHT
“I remember thinking about how silhouettes are important in the world of basketball, not just for performance – whether it’s a mid cut or high or low or something in-between – but as a hallmark of that year,” explains Hatfield, recalling how changing the top line of a shoe from one Jordan model to another became a standard brand practice. “We kept marveling at how we were able to keep the dimensions down and make it look slick,” says Hatfield. He also recalls that Jordan’s singular demand was to “make it look fast,” a request augmented by the “XXX” graphic that wraps the heel and extends through the forefoot.

2. TOE
Another trademark of later Jordan silhouettes is a smooth toe piece. “Michael has always been very infatuated with the toe-down look of a shoe,” notes Hatfield. A prime example can be seen on the XI, where the patent extends up the vamp so gracefully that its protective properties appear almost as an afterthought.

3. TRACTION
Less apparent than the collar and toe, but nonetheless important, is the traction treatment. The FlightSpeed architecture of the Air Jordan XX9, Hatfield explains, is “probably the best performing Jordan chassis we’d ever done.” Still, Hatfield and Smith didn’t just serve up a new herringbone pattern on the Air Jordan XXX. Instead, they drew a new traction system inspired by the Jordan quote: “Excellence is never second place,” which has been rendered in 3D to serve the needs of pinnacle athletes, like Russell Westbrook.

4. MATERIAL
Since the brand’s inception, material interplay has also been critical to the success of Jordan silhouettes. Likewise, a proprietary mix defines the upper composition of the Air Jordan XXX, which debuts an exclusive mix of woven, knit and printed materials. For Hatfield, it’s about putting the right characteristic in the right place. The woven upper provides “strength,” he explains, “and makes good sense for the body of the shoe, because you can bring in strength and graphic elements that are actually woven right in.” At the ankle and through the interior, knit offers “softness and breathability.”

5. FIT
Knit also allowed the designers to consider the shoe’s fit, from the inside out. “We go to great lengths to make sure that when you put on a shoe, your calcaneus, which is the bottom part of the heel or the bony part of the heel, is locked,” says Hatfield. On the Air Jordan XXX, a knit cradle keeps the heel in place and at the same time reduces the amount of glue needed to make the shoe. “We should be gaining wisdom and learning from our mistakes and successes,” confirms Hatfield.
