It is not surprising that the present generation of sneakerheads is still crazy about Air Jordan sneakers even after the passage of so many years. Ever since their introduction back in 1985, Air Jordan sneakers have been quite an important part of the history of sneakers. It all started when Michael Jordan got banned for wearing the Air Jordan 1 that did not meet the NBA’s uniform regulations. Many of the fans of Air Jordan sneakers were not even around when Michael Jordan was at the pinnacle of his career. This is all because Jordan Brand continues to be innovative with new models like the Air Jordan Generation.
Jordan Brand claims to have drawn inspiration from the Air Jordan 12 for the Air Jordan Generation, which will likely end up joining upcoming Jordan releases 2017. The Air Jordan 12 was designed by Tinker Hatfield back in 1996 and it retailed at a price of $135 back then. While the Air Jordan 12 borrowed several features from its predecessor, such as the carbon spring plate, it was also the first Air Jordan model that had Zoom Air incorporated into it. The Air Jordan 12 is also considered the most durable Air Jordan silhouette. The Air Jordan 12 finally received the retro treatment back in 2003.
The Air Jordan Generation has been revealed as Jordan Brand’s latest hybrid model. The uppers of this model appear to be made up of a combination of mesh and neoprene materials. It also appears to be equipped with two straps, a larger midfoot one that features “Jumpman” branding and the other one is at the ankle area. Both its midfoot straps and tongues appear to be featuring a liner design, which makes this hybrid sneaker look even more futuristic. The Air Jordan Generation also borrows its soles from the Air Jordan 12.
Apparently, the Air Jordan Generation will debut in two different colorways, one dressed up in a combination of Black and Chrome, and the other in a combination of Light Bone and Olive. However, so far it has not been when exactly Jordan Brand will drop the Air Jordan Generation, but it will likely be arriving in the coming months.
