Hoping to channel future nostalgia, Fujiwara adds his signature touches to the Air Jordan 3, brand new Jordan Cadence model and the yet-to-be-revealed Air Jordan 35 silhouette. He uses a black and white palette that references the Orca pack for the AJ3 and shades of grey on the Cadence, similar to an old AJ3 sample he teased back in May.
This specific pair of Jordan 3's will feature the signature fragment thunderbolt on the heel and tooling codes along the lateral. The Cadence uses the exposed Air unit of the AJ3 and adds a combination of lifestyle and running that was previously seen on HTM collabs.
Long-sleeves, tees and nylon pants make up the apparel which is inspired by vintage memorabilia - which Hiroshi hopes his collection becomes eventually.
"I was looking at the vintage Jordan collections. I wanted to feel what the clothes looked like — the atmosphere and what it felt like to wear them then, including nylon tracksuits... Maybe these shoes will be a holy grail in 10 years, I don’t know.”
The AJ3, Cadence and apparel will release on September 17 via SNKRS app and select retailers while the Air Jordan 35 is slated to release on October 28 after it's officially unveiled in the fall. In related news, Supreme and Nike dropped their Fall/Winter 2020 collaboration yesterday.
Release Date: 9/17/20 (Thursday)
