UPDATE: The release date is just days away and now we can now get up close with this long-awaited retro. With tumbled leather construction, lustrous metallic ‘Midnight Navy’ patent leather accents and holographic Jumpman all on point, it is clear that Jordan Brand are sparing no expense to bring back this OG colourway in true one-to-one retro form.
After a Trophy Room colab that got shine from DJ Khaled and the return of this OG colourway – it’s looking like the Air Jordan 16 is edging back into the spotlight. First released in 2001, this ‘Midnight Navy’ AJ16 has reappeared with a make-up faithful to the OG. White, full grain leather caps the upper, fastening under the midsole like a helmet. Its titular colour then pops on patent leather on the toe box and tongue, and mesh that reaches around the heel.
The Air Jordan 16 in Midnight Navy is slated for a December 22 release. We’ll keep you updated as more info comes in.
