Jordan Brand just unveiled its Spring 2021 retro sneaker releases, providing us with a taste of what's to come in the new year.

Consisting of fresh iterations of the Air Jordan 1, 4, and 5, among others, in addition to three new women’s exclusives, including the first-ever women's Air Jordan 9, the collection will begin to release in January 2021 on Nike SNKRS. Below, we take a look at each sneaker from the collection, detailing all you need to know about the individual offerings.

Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi OG

One of — if not the — clear standout from the Spring 2021 Jordan Brand collection is this UNC-themed Air Jordan 1. The 1s feature familiar colors but a fresh scheme, as University Blue leather appears on the ankle, heel, toe, and outsole; white appears on the quarter panel, midsole, tongue, and toe box; and black appears on the Swoosh and collar. The sneaker is marked with a black Wings logo with University Blue branding on the tongue.

Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi OG

The second Spring 2021 Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi OG incorporates multiple design elements from previous Air Jordan 1 models. The most noteworthy aspects include foldable eyelet flaps, exposed foam on the tongue with a reversed tongue tag and tri-tonal color-blocking of Volt, University Gold, and Sail, all harkening back to Jordan 1s of the past.

Women’s Air Jordan 1 Hi OG

This women's Air Jordan 1 flips the "Gold Toe" version of the silhouette, opting for “crinkle” silver in place of patent gold. The colorway, which is inspired by space innovation and the future of flight, pairs genuine black leather overlays on the toe, tongue, and collar with a white quarter panel and midsole, and crinkle silver details on the ankle, heel, and toe box. The sneaker will be available in both women's and men's sizes.

Air Jordan 3 Retro

This particular Air Jordan 3 Retro is releasing for the first time since 2007. With Sport Red and Orange Peel details on the tongue, eyelets, Air bag, and heel tab, the sneaker boasts true-to-form coloring and upgraded materials including a genuine leather upper, elephant print overlays on the forefoot and heel, and a matte-finished midsole. It will be available in sizes for the entire family.

Air Jordan 4 Retro

Another favorite from the upcoming spring collection, the UNC-flavored Air Jordan 4 combines premium materials with a classic Jumpman color scheme. The sneaker welcomes University Blue genuine suede leather on the upper, OG mesh netting on the quarter panel and tongue bottom with cement splatter on the midsole, heel tabs, and wings. It is completed with a woven jock tag on the tongue. The Spring 2021 Air Jordan 4 Retro comes in new packaging, available in men's and grade school sizing.

Women’s Air Jordan 4

This women's-exclusive Air Jordan 4 is a nod to the strength and beauty of the technical materials used in spacesuits. The black and Starfish Orange metallic mesh on the upper is complemented by matte TPU heel tabs and wings. Elsewhere, black mesh netting is found on the quarter panel and tongue bottom, while touches of orange appear on the toe and heel of the rubber outsole.

Air Jordan 5 Retro

An evolution of the Air Jordan 5 Stealth from 2006, this retro Air Jordan 5 has an all-white genuine leather upper, OG silver reflective tongue, midsole with blue splatter finish, and blue lace toggle and sockliner. It comes in new packaging, available in sizes for the entire family.

Air Jordan 5 Retro

This Air Jordan 5 celebrates the iconic textural elements of the silhouette, albeit in different areas of the shoe. The OG reflective material typically found on the tongue upper now appears on the quarter panel and tongue bottom, for example. The sneaker is predominantly constructed from suede leather and textile materials, and features translucent elements, a splatter finish on the midsole, and “23” branding on the heel. It will be available in men’s and grade school sizing.

Women’s Air Jordan 9

The first-ever women's Air Jordan 9, this particular sneaker references Michael Jordan's global impact and influence, as the phrase “Change the World” has been applied to the heel loop. The sneaker then features unique color schemes on each shoe and is made using vegetable-tanned materials and natural plant-based dyes.

Air Jordan 9 Retro

The second Spring 2021 Air Jordan 9 boasts a more subdued colorway, pairing black and charcoal genuine nubuck leather with hits of University Gold on the sockliner and branding on the midsole, tongue, and heel. It will be available in sizes for the entire family.

Air Jordan 13 Retro

This retro Air Jordan 13 incorporates touches of Starfish Orange, a color that is rooted in recent Jordan Brand history. The sneaker features a white genuine quilted leather upper, the familiar panther paw-like outsole, a carbon fiber shank plate, and the holographic cat’s eye. It comes in OG packaging and will be available in sizes for the entire family.
