Here is a selection of the sneakers that Jordan Brand will release as part of its summer 2017 retro collection. The collection features a series of sneakers that are themed after Michael Jordan’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina. That side of the collection includes the Air Jordan 11 Retro Low, Air Jordan 7 Retro “Pantone” and Air Jordan 13 Retro Low. The second half of the collection plays off of “premium craftsmanship”…
Michael Jordan’s obsession with detail is apparent in each of his signature shoes. From the V’s original Nubuck to the patent leather on the XI, each material choice reflects a balance of performance benefit and aesthetic preference. Today, that obsession translates to a progressive approach to color and craft. This season, it’s reflected in new takes on the V and XI, a reworking of the iconic Air Jordan I and the reintroduction of the shoe that solidified the brand’s push into off-court coloring, the Air Jordan XIII Low.

Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “University Blue”
The Air Jordan XI Retro Low releases for the first time since 2001. The defining university blue color is featured prominently on the patent leather upper, while a white midsole and translucent outsole ground the clean design.
Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Suede/Patent”
A staple in Jordan Brand’s summertime lineup, the latest Air Jordan XI Low steps up to the plate this season by paying tribute to Michael Jordan’s baseball career and incorporating new materials on the classic silhouette. A black suede upper sits atop an iridescent, patent leather mudguard.
Air Jordan V Retro Premium “Pure Platinum”
Elevated materials and hand crafted execution continue this summer season with this Air Jordan V Premium silhouette. The shoe features a flooded pure platinum upper and woven leather accents.
Air Jordan 7 Retro “Pantone”
Originally showcased during the 2010 World Basketball Festival, the Air Jordan VII in university blue hits retail for the first time in 2017.
Air Jordan 13 Retro Low “Reflective Navy”
With university blue accents on the Jumpman logos, the Air Jordan XIII Retro Low re-emerges from the vault. The shoe preserves its original detailing from 1998: reflective navy material on the upper, rich midnight black suede and leather hits.
Air Jordan 13 Retro Low “Chutney”
Initially released in 1998, the Air Jordan XIII Retro Low was one of the first silhouettes to incorporate off-court, non-performance colors, like chutney, on a basketball shoe. A bold move at the time by Tinker Hatfield, this introduction of lifestyle colors on a performance shoe quickly amassed a cult following.
Air Jordan I Retro High Decon
The Air Jordan I Retro High Decon silhouette draws from the AJ1’s original detailing, but offers it up in an ultra-clean canvas upper built for elevated comfort and style.
