UPDATE: At long last, Jordan Brand's curious runner/trainer hybrid has returned to shelves in hometown colours. The Jordan Trunner LX 'Bulls' is available right now from select Jordan Brand stockists, including Kith. Don't wait too long to cop your pair though – these won't last long!
UPDATE: After weeks of waiting, a release date for the Jordan Trunner LX 'Bulls' has finally been announced. You'll be able to cop your pair on May 3 from Nike's online store and select Jordan Brand stockists. It's worth noting that these official release photos show the red to be noticeably lighter than earlier photos – a welcome change and one more in line with the classic Bulls colour combo.
It is rare for a Jordan Brand silhouette outside the flagship Air Jordan lineage to leave a lasting impression on the sneaker world – but such is the legacy of the Trunner. The cult-classic silhouette made a surprise – and much praised – return earlier this year as part of the 2017 BHM release line-up, but now it is finally coming back in OG colours. Last seen in 2006, this 'Bulls' make-up is a classic combination of black, white and deep vermillion for the woven runner x trainer hybrid. Hopefully this is a sign that more OG colourways are in the pipeline.
No release date has been announced for the Jordan Trunner LX 'Bulls' at the time of writing, but stay tuned for updates!
