Find out which ones they are now.
Innovating, but also remaining firmly rooted in the past: this is the winning blend that has always characterised the Nike brand, until today. The iconic models, born for basketball in the 80s and 90s, are those most loved by collectors and trainer enthusiasts
Here’s a list of 5 Jordan and Nike releases that will return in 2024 in all their OG glory.
1) The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ from 2012.
When the Foamposite One Galaxy was last released in 2012, fans camped outside nike stores for over a week to get their hands on the legendary trainer, which was included in Nike’s All-Star collection that year. This rare and objectively crazy colourway is already sending collectors into raptures, ahead of its release in Spring 2024.
Unlike the 2018 release, next year’s will include the iconic graphic on the upper, mini swooshes on the toe and glow-in-the-dark sole.
2) The Air Jordan Retro 5 “Olive” from 2006
It was back in 2006 when Jordan last released the Air Jordan 5 Olive: one of the first non-GO colourways to feature military colours and eye-catching details, such as butter-coloured suede panels, matching laces and eyelets, 3M-bottomed tongue and a touch of orange in the Jumpman logo.
An unmissable gem that will return for spring 2024 in a Retro version.
3) The 2010 Air Jordan 9 “Power Blue” 30th Anniversary
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first release, Jordan is preparing for the return of the iconic Air Jordan 9 Powder Blue silhouette, released in 1994 and inspired by Michael Jordan’s Alma Mater Chapel Hill.
Designed by Tinker Hatflield, this trainer remained in the archives until 2010, when it saw an updated re-release of the OG model; unlike its predecessor, the 2024 one will have the #23 logo embroidered on the heel, to faithfully replicate the 1994 OG version.
4) From 2012 Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue”
The much-loved Air Jordan 4 will finally see the light of day from summer 2024, when it will return in the “Military Blue” colourway, following the inspiration of the “Off White / Royal Blue” colourway. Made.
The upcoming re-release is expected to feature almost identical specifications to the 1989 debut: the shoe’s shape should be in line with Jordan’s “Remastered” series, while the logo on the sole should read “Nike Air“.
5) From 2018 Nike Air Max Plus Hyper Blue
Air Max fans can start rejoicing: for Spring 2024, the legendary plus OG Hyper Blue will return, one of the most beloved colorways for nostalgic trainers of the past, and not only.
We’ll have to wait until next Air Max Day, then, to get our hands on this grail, after last years’ launches of the Air Max 95 “Neon”, Air Max 90 “Infrared”, Air Max 1 “Sport Red” and Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet”.
