As Jordan Brand looks to celebrate Air Jordan’s 30th Anniversary during All-Star weekend, it derives inspiration from this year’s host city and Michael Jordan’s birthplace to produce two Air Jordan X color ways.
Each Air Jordan X All-Star colorway was created through Jordan Brand’s remastering initiative, a new manufacturing process used to produce retro sneakers that are closer to their originals in terms of quality, look and feel. Among the first retro sneakers to be remastered, the Air Jordan X All-Star color ways pay homage to the concrete jungle and its historic impact on the Jordan Brand’s enduring legacy.
Given this year’s All-Star location, it was only appropriate that Jordan Brand pay tribute to a city integral to its history. The teal accent on the inner lining and outsole is meant to reference the iconic New York City statue.
