Although Michael Jordan’s legacy will always live through the kicks that made him fly, Jordan Brand is now looking to explore these special moments through apparel. We got an exclusive first look at the OG Vault Flight Suit to see just how the Jumpman brand is extending the retro catalogue beyond sneakers.
The Jordan OG Vault Flight Suit will release in a fan-favorite royal blue and black colorway, paying homage to a classic Nike advertisement featuring MJ on an airstrip. A classic combination of nylon and mesh wrap the jacket and pants with a vintage sheen.
The kit also bears subtle updates including a double zipper and ankle zips, adding modern functionality.
“We wanted to offer a 1-to-1 recreation of these original icons,” Jordan Energy Designer Frank Cooke tells us about the ideas behind the collection. “Gemo (Wong, VP of Jordan Energy) and I went to the archives to really bring back those OG materials and finishes similar to the way we do footwear. We really hope the fans appreciate it.”
