Jordan Brand has never had a problem with creativity. As a testament to that, Jordan released Jordan Future just last year and though unusual with regards to the typical Jordan sneakers, the Jordan Future proved to be a success, especially in the lifestyle department. Given such a success, it’s no wonder that the brand is now slating another lifestyle sneaker of almost the same ilk – the Jordan Horizon.
Release Date:January 6, 2016
From early September to late December, Sneaker News provided sneaker heads several updates starting with the development of the Jordan Future that will become a brand new design for the Air Jordan 11s up until its latest alterations.
Casual looking with the same classic tooling that Jordan shoes are known for, the Air Jordan Horizon is another lifestyle shoe that fans would be heading out for especially now that it had its official release date in China earlier this December.
Up close, the AJ Horizon noticeably had its design based on the silhouette of the Air Jordan 13, which so far will make its debut on 2016. But while the Horizon takes the shape of the AJ13s, the traditional leather upper were swapped for a mesh construction to provide more breathable space and comfort for wearers. It’s an accepted standard given that the shoes are more a lifestyle shoes than something you would bring on the hard court.
The Air Jordan Horizon are also monochromatic in tone so it uses just a single color for the mesh upper in either new red or navy colorways except the midsole which is done in clean white and is finished off with a translucent outsole bottom.
As of this December, some of the altered Horizons are now sporting boot ankle collars that are leather-like and can be folded over for an added support. Collaborations are also granted with the Public School New York where the shoes are rendered to become graphic-heavy with geometric shapes.
All in all, the monochromatic Air Jordan Horizons are perfect choices if you opt for a cleaner look. On the other hand, PSNY’s collaboration is more suited for people who wish to own a pair with bolder and more colorful patterns.
But given that the Air Jordan Horizon will be making its big debut on Jordan Brand retailers worldwide in 2016, what we can do for now is wait for more editions of the shoes and see whether Jordan Brand is holding up more surprises.
