Although 2022 still has four months left (and dozens of sneaker releases scheduled), several Air Jordan retros for Summer 2023 have entered the rumor mill.
Nostalgia sells and pairs like the Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” from 2006 are proof given that their rumored return after an 11-year-break has already led some netizens to express their need for the shoes on social media. Previously-seen color palettes also emerged as part of the anticipated lineup, which has been leaked by reliable source @zSneakerHeadz via YouTube: “White Infrared” takes over the Air Jordan 7; a “Toro Bravo” arrangement emboldens the Air Jordan 6; and the Air Jordan 13 is set to indulge in a “Black Flint” update to its beloved “Flint” look.
Pairs of the Air Jordan 1 are to be expected between April and June of 2023, with speculation about the holiday season’s Air Jordan 11 still unsettled. Recent years have seen Team Jumpman launch original colors of the patent leather-donning sneaker, although the “Cherry” retro set to drop on December 10th of this year interrupts the trend. According to @zSneakerHeadz, the sneaker’s “Columbia” colorway is on the table for 2023, but NIKE, Inc. may ultimately tweak the blue used on the pair to create some distinction between the originals from 1996.
Enjoy early mock-ups of the rumored retro lineup ahead, as you wait for official Nike.com and Nike SNKRS launch details. (As always, keep in mind that retail versions of products are likely to differ from unauthorized mock-ups of Brand Jordan product.)
