Don C’s Jordan Legacy 312 Pays Tribute to Bo, Billy Hoyle & Agassi

Inspired by Mike in regards to tooling, Don C’s upcoming Jordan Legacy 312 hybrid will also pay tribute to fellow Swoosh icons.

Seen today as part of Jordan Brand’s Fall 2018 Lineup, the pair pulling from the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3 and Air Alpha Force finds inspiration from the likes of Bo Jackson, Billy Hoyle and Andre Agassi.

The first is the famed “Medicine Ball” colorway, donned on Jackson’s Air Trainer III silo and seen on screen on Spike Lee in Do The Right Thing.

The second is also cinematic, playing off the Nike Air Command Force worn on the hardwood by David Robinson but more famously on the asphalt by Billy Hoyle in White Men Can’t Jump.

The last takes to tennis, riffing off Andre Agassi and his beloved Nike Air Tech Challenge II in “Hot Lava” hues.

Get a glimpse at each get-up above slated for fall release.

Don C Reveals New Colorway of His Jordan Legacy 312

Don C, after releasing three variations of the Air Jordan 2 and a striking contribution to Nike’s AF100 installment, has moved on to thoughtfully imagining hybrids. His upcoming Jordan Legacy 312 is somewhat of a masterful Frankenstein — a melding pot of classic sneakers that pull from the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3, and the nostalgic Alpha Force, respectively.

Don revealed a final sample of the shoe today on Instagram and immediately the most noteworthy feature is the absence of Nike Air at the tongue. Fittingly, Just Don branding emboldens the Air Jordan 1 inspired tongue construction while a Nike scripted forefoot strap odes to the aforementioned Alpha Force (worn on court briefly by Mike). The shoe’s midsole is clearly tooled to represent the Air Jordan 3, as elephant print covers the mudguard and rear Visible Air also represents the coveted 88 classic.

Don would only allude to his excitement surrounding the shoe’s summer release. A more specific timeframe has not been revealed. Stay tuned.

Update 6/7: Don C has revealed a new colorway of his upcoming Jordan Legacy 312. The Black/Royal colorway is of the fragment variety. In true Don fashion, the Chicago son laced them up with Gucci trousers and the White/Red-Black colorway.

Jordan Brand Celebrates Carmelo Anthony’s 15th Season with Air Jordan 2 “Melo”

Before his current post in Oklahoma City with the Thunder, and ahead of his memorable years with the Knicks as a forceful staple in Madison Square Garden, three-time Olympic gold medalist Carmelo Anthony spent the earliest moments of his 15-year NBA tenure in the Mile High City. The 10-time NBA All-Star spent his first eight professional seasons with the Denver Nuggets. Some of which rank among his best in the Association.

Jordan Brand continues to honor Anthony’s 15th tour with a coveted relic from his Nuggets days. The adored Air Jordan 2 “Melo” player exclusive from 2004, long thought to never release much less over a decade later, will finally be available for general consumption.

Coated in lightly hued shades that ode the northwestern squad, Varsity Maize and University Blue contrasts join the primary white leather upper of Michael Jordan’s often underrated yet highly luxurious second signature silhouette. Anthony, the longest tenured Jordan Brand signature athlete, sees his long-standing presence further honored through his Melo logo perched along the sockliner and inner tongue.

Expect the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” in select stores on June 9.

Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” Takes Flight This Month

Over the last few years, Jordan Brand’s celebrated holiday offering has largely been anchored by adoring Air Jordan 11 releases. The latter months of 2018 likely won’t stray from that tradition. However, one of the most anticipated Air Jordan 11s of this year won’t release in November or December.

Taking on “Blackout” and “Prom Night” themes before being officially referenced at the Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” edition, the noir centric style takes its inspiration from the shoe’s ability to play both on court and in formal settings.

Often times brand aficionados have laced up Air Jordan 11s at prom and other ‘tux and tennis’ functions. Thus, the Air Jordan 11 over time has become something of a dressy sneaker when given the opportunity. By all measures a premium iteration of the Air Jordan 11, the upper is enhanced with suede materials alongside a metal Jumpman logo and laces inspired by graduation cords.

The Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” will release on May 26 and retail or $ 220.

The Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” Highlights Drake’s Signature at the Tongue

Although release details for the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” remain somewhat of a mystery, what does appear to be clear is that this northern-inspired iteration of the 1989 produced silhouette is indeed affiliated with Drake.

By now everyone is painfully aware of the rumors surrounding his impending move to adidas. Drake continues to  add fuel to the fire by wearing adidas almost exclusively over the last few months. But before anything official takes place (or doesn’t), there’s still Jordan Brand business at hand. The “Raptors” 4’s represent said business. Sort of.

In lieu of traditional Flight script below the Jumpman logo, Drizzy’s signature is prominently placed on the tongue acting as conclusive evidence that this release was intended for the Toronto son. Yet given the uncertainly of his future with the company, it’s likely the rollout for this shoe will be pretty quiet from a Jordan Brand standpoint. So, in whatever capacity he’s affiliated with this release, it appears to be his final Jordan Brand release.

Stay tuned for more details on the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” and peep OVO’s Clark Wallabee collaboration here.
