The newest model to a growing arsenal of Jordan Brand retro hybrid creations is the Air Jordan Flight Remix. Using features predominantly from the V and XX2 with hints of the AJ XV, the first release of the Air Jordan Flight Remix will be a black/vibrant yellow-cool grey drop. Features from the AJ V are probably the most obvious to the eyes of early Jordan Retro lovers. The mid foot web sits in the middle of the upper below the unmistakeable ankle support of the V and the iconic 3M tongue. From the XX2 the Air Jordan Flight Remix uses the accented stitching pattern and heel plate inspiration, as well as the general shape of the silhouette. And last but not least, the rubber strip up the heel and toe box shape are taken from the XV. The shoe’s midsole is a new look from Jordan, not seen on any of the three models used to blend the Remix but it does include a V inspired design “teeth” design on the icy outsole.
The Air Jordan Flight Remix “Vibrant Yellow” drops Wednesday, July 26th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and at Footlocker.com for $ 160.
Two pairs of the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99 – the “Black Toe” and the “Vibrant” – are now available. The Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99 takes the famous silhouette of the original Air Jordan and incorporates elements of the Air Jordan XIV into the design of the shoe’s upper. The Retro 1 ’99 features the ribbed stitching, suede toe box, rubber heel piece, and branded lace caps that were iconic elements of the Retro AJ XIV – a shoe originally inspired by Michael Jordan’s sports car collection. The two colorways dropping tomorrow each have a significance of their own. The “Black Toe” is a white/black-gym red colorway that is customary to grace every pair of Jays. The “Thunder” release is a cool grey/vibrant yellow-black-white release which succeeds the the Retro XIV “Vibrant Yellow” release of last weekend.
Each pair of the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99 will retail for $ 130. The “Black Toe” release will be available at Foot Locker and House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com, while the “Vibrant Yellow” release will be at House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores and also on Footlocker.com.
Boldly featuring a black, vibrant yellow and white color, this sneaker takes designed cues from high-end sports vehicles. This edition of the Air Jordan XIV is special in the fact that its colors aren’t derivative from one of Jordan’s previous teams. The AJ14 was the last pair MJ wore as a Chicago Bull, however, worn for his last game while making the “Last Shot” in the 1998 NBA Finals. Taking the iconic silhouette and replacing the red with a vibrant yellow accent while keeping the signature black nubuck upper makes this an overall slick shoe.
Available in stores and online Friday. Check out Release Locator for stores.
Inspired by the sleek lines and aerodynamic design of one of the world’s fastest automobiles, the Air Jordan 14 Retro ‘Vibrant Yellow’ features the Jumpman shield logo and midsole painted in Vibrant Yellow.
