By Drew Hammell

2016 was another huge year for Jordan Brand retro releases. With seemingly no end in sight, Jordan continues to bring back classic silhouettes in both original and new colorways. Inspired by the popular “Best Nine” hashtag, here’s a look back at the top nine releases of 2016.

9. Air Jordan 14 “Oxidized Green” – Release Date: 7.16.16

Unknown-5

This was the first time the Oxidized Green colorway retro’d , and it was highly slept on. The main reasons include the fact that Jordan never wore this version on court, and the colors cannot be tied to any team he ever played for. Regardless, it looks great on foot and is an outstanding performance sneaker on the court as well.

8. Air Jordan 12 “The Master” – Release Date: 2.27.16

Unknown-4

While the “Flu Game” 12s returned in 2016 and certainly were popular, a fresh version of the 12 was quite intriguing. Inspired by a poster of MJ dribbling in the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi,” this new colorway was an instant classic and sold out quickly. The sleek look of the all-black leather with subtle white tabs and gold eyelets made this model stylish on and off the court.

7. Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” – Release Date: 12.10.16

Unknown-3

Perhaps the most-hyped release of the year, and with good reason. Jordan Brand traditionally releases an AJ 11 model a week or two before Christmas. Sneakerheads young and old raved about the quality on this one – the patent leather is the identical shape as the original, along with the return of the thin white trim that was missing from earlier “Space Jam” retros.

6. Air Jordan 9 “OG”  – Release Date: 12.3.16

Unknown-2

The sneaker Michael never wore in an NBA game with the Bulls returned for the holidays, mostly to tie in with the return of the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam.” Younger sneakerheads started calling these “Space Jams” as well, since Jordan wore them in the movie before switching to the more popular 11s. Older heads would rally against that moniker, though.

5. Air Jordan 8 “Champagne” – Release Date: 6.25.16

Unknown-4

Commemorating the Bulls’ first three-peat, the “Champagne” was decked out in white with gold trim to symbolize the Larry O’Brien championship trophy. Jordan wore the AJ 8 during that third title run. Since the “Champagne” colorway was fresh and in limited supply, it sold out quickly.

4. Air Jordan 5 “Black Metallic” – Release Date: 7.23.16

Unknown-3

Another classic, also with “Nike Air” on the heel instead of the Jumpman. For whatever reason, this retro didn’t fly off of shelves as quick as some would have expected but the dedicated Jordan lovers had no problem getting their pair. Maybe it was the fact that they didn’t have a ‘23’ on the side, like the ones Jordan primarily wore. Or maybe the fact that it was a black shoe that released in the middle of the summer kept some people away.

3. Air Jordan 4 “White Cement” – Release Date: 2.13.16

Unknown-2

The return of a classic – complete with OG “Nike Air” branding on the heel instead of the Jumpman logo made this a must-have for most sneakerheads.

2. Air Jordan 3 “True Blue” – Release Date: 11.25.16

Unknown-1

The “TBs” hold a special place in a lot of sneakerheads’ hearts because both Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant wore them on the NBA hardwood. Michael sported them during his time with the Washington Wizards, and Kobe wore them while he was a sneaker free agent in 2003.

1. Air Jordan 1 “Bred” – Release Date: 9.3.16

Air Jordan 1 'Bred'

There were plenty of popular AJ 1 releases in 2016, but the return of the classic “Bred” colorway dominated the headlines as expected. Along with the original “Banned” commercial and print ads, Nike paired the AJ 1 with the launch of the new Air Jordan 31 and held a huge party in Las Vegas to unveil the newest shoe along with the return of the 1s.

Black Friday has transcended its standard discount shopping origins and become a full-fledged sneakerhead holiday; complete with corresponding releases.

About the same time that the sneakerhead market began to open up globally is when a Black Friday release of an Air Jordan Retro (or two) became something to look forward to annually. Last year we saw JB bring back the classic Air Jordan ‘Aqua’ Retro 8 and started they gave Cyber Monday its own release of a Retro 1.

Throughout the years there have been a good amount of Jordan releases on the last Friday of November, so this feature was created as a reference to the “creme of the crop” pairs. Use this article to mark time and possibly predict the direction Jordan Brand will be going in when it comes to Black Friday.

All that said, thumb thru this list of the best Air Jordan Retro releases from Black Friday throughout the years.

The Air Jordan XXX1 made its splash on the scene earlier this summer during the summer games on Jimmy Butler, a JB athlete. Once sneakerheads and basketball players alike got their eyes on the sneaker and saw how it performed on court, they had to get their hands on them. Jordan Brand is no stranger to tying in a colorway that has a back-story behind it and that is the case with this one. As you may remember, we first saw the ‘Shattered Backboard’ colorway on an Air Jordan Retro 1 back in 2015 that paid tribute to the time MJ broke the backboard in an international game.

This Jordan XXX1 is decked out in a black, starfish orange and silver colorway that has hints of white woven throughout the upper. If you’re looking for the perfect Halloween shoe then this could be it. JB didn’t skimp on the details on these, as you will notice they added ‘Shattered Backboard’ graphics on the inner tongues of the shoe. Unlike other XXX1’s that have released with icy clear soles, these will feature a translucent rubber gum sole that blends well with the upper.

Make sure you pick up your pair of the Air Jordan XXX1 ‘Shattered Backboard’ on October 8th in select stores and on Finishline.com.

Throwing it back to 1990, Jordan brand is set to release the remastered original Air Jordan 5. The shoe will remain true to form as it will come dressed in a Black, Fire Red, Metallic Silver, and White color scheme. The shoe features an all-black nubuck upper and metallic colored tongue comes in 3M to make the shoe pop. Branding comes by way of the Jumpman on the tongue and outsole, and the ‘Nike Air’ on the heel of the shoe to give it that OG look. Additional features on the shoe include the lace locks, the clear icy outsole. Jordan fans have long anticipated this release and will finally get the chance to get their hands on a pair this July.
