Jordan Brand’s hybrids have been getting slaughtered lately with some of the harshest comments one could possibly direct towards a sneaker. Mostly, the hateful comments are coming from the older Air Jordan heads who hate seeing their favorite J’s chopped and screwed to form an entirely new silhouette.
If you’re part of that camp get ready to rant and rave in a frantic rage as Jordan Brand presents the Rare Air, a new model which fuses together design traits from atleast 4 different Air Jordans. The basic shape of the Rare Air is very similar to that of the Air Jordan VI, while the cement pattern around the heel and toe obviously comes from the Air Jordan III. The sole unit includes elements from two more Jordans with the sidewall resembling the Air Jordan IV and the heel section looking as if it’s straight off the Air Jordan V. That’s just the gist of it too, if you really give it a look through you’ll notice plenty more that’s been borrowed from different Air Jordans. Just to give you another, check out the tongue. Air Jordan V anybody?
Honestly speaking, I’ve been part of the camp which hasn’t really been feeling the new hybrids, but I gotta admit the Jordan Rare Air isn’t all to bad. Specially in the Black/Red-Cement Grey color scheme. I’ll really need to get a closer look at them in store before making a final call, but as it stands right now I could defiantly rock these.
No official release details are available at this time so stay tuned for further info. Via: RMK
