Way back in early January, images of the Air Jordan Accolades leaked (and like everything Jordan Brand, word quickly turned to wildfire as fan interest grew). Earlier this month, the Jumpman unleashed the first of the Jordan Accolades to retail in the form of the aptly titled Premier (Black / Varsity Red). Jordan Brand have since announced the White / Black-Cement Grey (featuring their famous elephant print) and the Black / Varsity Red-White editions. Both have received mix reviews from various outlets in the blog-o-sphere but that chatter has ceased now that the triangle has become a square with the inclusion of the White / Gold-Red version - which recently landed online. This mid-cut Accolade, complete with white leather and two varsity red Jumpman logos, features gold laser-etchings (based on Michael Jordan’s greatest hardwood accomplishments) which have been lifted from the Air Jordan XX. Combined with the Air Jordan X’s midsole / outsole, the Accolade is now the hybrid that we hoped it would be – and you’ve gotta love the intentional 2010 reference.
