Here’s what you have to look forward to this week:
JORDAN RETRO 6 ‘UNIVERSITY BLUE’ – DEC. 2 AT 10 AM ET
Jordan has been paying tribute to MJ’s alma mater quite a bit this year, and it makes sense — it’s where His Airness’ legend was born. Plus, Carolina’s University Blue color always winds up looking fresh on a sneaker. This time around, it’s the Retro 6s that head back to college. A black nubuck upper is highlighted by University Blue accents along the tongue, heel, and midsole for a brand-new take on a classic retro style. Men’s $189.99. Boys’ $139.99.
JORDAN AJ XXXII LOW ‘WIN LIKE ‘96’ – DEC. 2 AT 10 AM ET
One of those previous callbacks to MJ’s college years was on Nov. 4, when Jordan dropped the AJ XXXII ‘Win Like ‘82’s. They paid homage to Mike’s legendary 1982 college season that culminated in a national championship. So, to follow up that release, they are dropping the ‘Win Like ‘96’s. They are obviously inspired by one of the greatest seasons in basketball history, MJ’s title-winning 1996 season with Chicago. Chicago’s signature red and black colors are the feature here, as well as an icy, translucent outsole that helps complete the look. Men’s $159.99. Boys’ $119.99.
GIRLS’ JORDAN RETRO 13 ‘ITALY BLUE’ – DEC. 2 AT 10 AM ET
To cap things off for this weekend’s releases, we have another fresh girls’ exclusive Jordan colorway. Influenced by MJ’s love for Italy, these Retro 13s have a smooth white leather upper, a wolf grey toe, and blue suede overlays along the heel and midsole. It’s a bold look, sure to turn plenty of heads, and it’s just what you need to upgrade your sneaker rotation. Girls’ $139.99.
