The weekend is nearly upon us, and it’s bringing with it a fleet of dope drops from Jordan Brand and Nike alike; for performance and style alike.
Performance? Take your pick. The Nike Kobe 11 Black Horse brings a striking palette to the innovative Flyknit upper, fading from black through the forefoot to maroon through the midfoot and olive green around the heel. Below, a gum brown sole completes the cool, fashion-meets-function look.
The Air Jordan 31 Fine Print, meanwhile, brings a classic black-and-white palette to the XXX1’s game-changing upper, a past-meets-present construction that combines leather and Flyknit. On the outsole, Michael Jordan’s famous signature is emblazoned across the forefoot, a nod to MJ’s first contract with Nike.
Finally, Jordan Brand unleashes its latest high-fashion take on a classic J on Saturday. The Air Jordan 4 Premium Navy incorporates luxe quilted blue leather on the upper, a look that’s as fitting in the streets as it is on hardwood. Copper embellishments round out the aesthetic in style, keeping the timeless hoops design firmly rooted in fashion.
All three shoes launch Saturday, September 17, at select retailers nationwide. Official photos and launch info are below, along with the FootLocker.com purchase link for the Kobe 11. AJs IV and XXX1 will be available on the SNKRS app and in select brick-and-mortars.
