For the first time since 2008’s Countdown Pack, the Air Jordan 15 is set to return to shelves in OG form. A retro of the oft-maligned Air Jordan silhouette was hinted by 2016’s LAIKA x Air Jordan 15 ‘Kubo’ collaboration, which modified the shoe’s original construction with a zippered-ankle, but fans will now be able to cop the X15 rocket plane-inspired design in its vintage form – protruding ‘tongue’ and all.
At this stage, only the OG ‘Stealth’ colourway has been confirmed for retro duties, which sees the woven silhouette hit with a mostly black make-up and a few crimson highlights –including the signature ‘Prada stripe’ at the heel. We’ll need to wait and see if Jordan Brand are planning to revive more classic colourways from the archives.
The Air Jordan 15 ‘Stealth’ will hit Nike.com and select Jordan Brand stockists on January 7, 2017.
