Every year brings new releases, and every Friday brings a new dilemma. Many new Air Jordans drop on Saturdays, so the question is — should you celebrate the end of another week, or set a Saturday morning alarm to cop new drops before bots and resellers make it nearly impossible?
To make your decision easier, Highsnobiety presents you with the most comprehensive Air Jordan release date list for 2017. We’ll update this page every time new Air Jordan release info arrives, so you might want to add this to your bookmarks.
Without further ado, here are the biggest Air Jordan release dates coming in 2017.
Air Jordan XII Low “Wolf Grey”
Unlike other colorways of the Retro XII, the leather on this particular edition was replaced with mesh, improving the previously almost non-existent breathability of the Air Jordan 12. The typical “two-3” lettering for this model, and the Jumpman logo on the tongue will be added in dark navy, while the shoe benefits from bright yellow detailing on the back and soles.
Release Date: March 18, 2017
Air Jordan IV “Motorsport”
This long-awaited colorway of the Air Jordan IV is expected to drop at the end of March 2017. A decade after it was specifically created for the members of Michael Jordan’s motorsport team, this shoe is going to be available for the first time. Motorsport 4s will look similar to the Mars Blackmon model, yet the red detailing will be replaced with blue, without Spike Lee’s face on the heel.
Release Date: March 25, 2017
Air Jordan IV “KAWS”
This recently announced and highly-anticipated sneaker by Jordan Brand, and New York’s own KAWS, is guaranteed to bring the sneaker craze. Decorated with the grey-on-grey suede upper, the shoe sits on a glow-in-the-dark sole, which is embellished with Companion’s gloves.
The official release date has not been yet announced, but there’s a chance that we might see this sneaker soon enough.
Release Date: Spring, 2017
Air Jordan XXX1 “Royal”
As you might have already noticed, Jordan Brand dropped quite a few colorways of its latest model, and some of them are dedicated to the previously released grails, such as the Banned 1s and the Space Jam XI. Utilizing the same color scheme as the upcoming Air Jordan Royal 1s, this sneaker serves as a nod to the OG Air Jordan shoe.
Release Date: April 1, 2017
Air Jordan I “Royal”
After Jordan Brand blessed the pavements of big cities with the “Banned” 1, there was major speculation of whether the “Royal” 1 would see daylight anytime soon. As it has not yet been officially confirmed, this black/blue model is rumored to drop some time in the second quarter of 2017, most probably in Spring or early Summer. Just like the “Banned” version, which was praised for the quality of the materials, this shoe will be made with the same attention to detail.
Release Date: April 1, 2017
Air Jordan XI Low “UNC”
This is the return of the Low 11 which was originally released back in 2001. The shoe utilizes the colors of His Airness’ Alma Mater — the University of North Carolina. The upper will feature signature patent leather, complemented by ice blue soles. The release date has not been announced, but this shoe is rumored to drop sometime this summer. Stay tuned for more information and click here for more images.
Release Date: April 15, 2017
Air Jordan IV “Pure Money”
First seen in 2005, this version of the Royalty IV features silver eyelets with all-white leather for the upper, soles and lining. On top of the luxurious look, this “Pure Money” execution might create feelings of paranoia about messing up the ultra-clean look. Fortunately enough, the shoe will drop mid-May to kick off hot summer holidays in a snow-white colorway.
Release Date: May 13, 2017
Air Jordan XI Low “Barons”
Another masterpiece by Tinker Hatfield will serve as reference to Michael Jordan’s first retirement and his short stint as a professional baseball player in 1995. The “Barons” 11 will be a low-top model. This Air Jordan will combine a black upper with metallic patent leather and translucent soles, similar to the previously released “72-10” colorway. The “Barons” 11s are expected to drop in May.
Release Date: May 27, 2017
Air Jordan VII “Pure Money”
This neat-looking pair promises to be a sure head-turner, making this an appealing summer crep. The VII will consist of a grey suede upper complemented with light pink leather. The Air Jordan Retro 7 is top-of-the-line when it comes to ventilation, which gives it another reason to be added to the summer rotation.
Release Date: June 3, 2017
Air Jordan IV “Black/Royal”
Jordan Brand will premiere another iteration of the Retro IV with a new colorway of this universally admired sneaker. The upper will utilize tumbled leather, which is unusual for the 4, along with grey eyelets and blue lining.
Release Date: June 17, 2017
