Jordan Brand has been on a mission for quite some time to work us over with their hybrids and new silhouettes. Unfortunately, their success has been limited in the past, with more naysayers then takers when it comes to most of the designs. Their latest project though may stand a chance in the world, thanks to the fact it brings something completely new to the market.
Unlike a lot of the new sneakers emerging from Jordan Brand factories, this new model dubbed the Air Jordan AR takes no cues from previous Air Jordan’s and uses a design that’s totally originally to the Jordan Brand lineup. The upper of the shoes feature white patent leather on the toe with glossy black on the heel, and white leather side panels consisting of large cutouts displaying a breathable black mesh sock lining. Both black and red combine for the mid-sole, while subtle accents of red appear within the visible air unit in the heel and on a few other places throughout the sneakers. Keeping in mind that the sneakers are designed for basketball and not so much casual fashion, we gotta respect Jordan Brand for this one, specially since it’s original this time. We’ve been waiting for something original from Jordan Brand for quite some time, something which doesn’t fuse together a slew of other J’s.
No official release is available at this time but MarqueeSole has managed to get their hands on a few pairs to offer up as an early release. A couple more photos follow after the jump.
