Nike ups its basketball game with updated retro Jordans.
Nike’s Jordan Brand announced it will rework some of its most classic silhouettes this summer. By incorporating sneaker styles that date back to the late ‘90s with updated materials and colors, the brand gives eight retro sneakers a modern twist.
Three of the sneakers the Jordan Brand will roll out feature the University of North Carolina blue, in honor of Michael Jordan’s alma mater. The Air Jordan XI Retro Low, Air Jordan VII Retro and Air Jordan XIII Retro Low all offer the subtle nod to Jordan.
The revamped styles feature suede, nubuck, patent leather, canvas and some pastel color schemes.
