The Best Jordans 2016 Had To Offer
Last year was a pretty big year for Nike’s sneaker division. Bringing back some old school favorites as well as some newer pieces meant there was a great mix for sneakerheads. We’ve put together our list of some of the best Air Jordans 2016 brought us.
Air Jordan 1 “Black/Red”
If you are trying to cop some iconic jordan, the signature ‘black and Red’ should be your first choice. This release was the first chance in a long time for people to cop one of the most famous kicks around. Nostalgia aside it’s a dope fair of sneakers but you can’t separate it from the history and that alone would be enough to make it worthwhile.
Air Jordan Retro 11 Low White Gold
For the Air Jordans 2016 was the year of the retro releases. The Banned 1s got most of the attention but the Low White Gold got a lot of well deserved attention. Deceptively simple and styled for high end looks, they’re worth picking up even if the throwback means nothing to you.
Nike Zoom HyperRev ‘Be True’
Nike have taken the unisex nature of their kicks to heart in recent years and the ‘Be True’ shows that clearer than most. Touching on the Citysock/NMD shape, they’re some of the most forward thinking kicks, stylistically. Nike has seen some largely undue criticism for the amount of retro releases in the Jordans 2016 calendar, suggesting they’re running out of inspiration. Releases like this prove that that’s not true.
Air Jordan 10 Retro ‘OVO’
Drake hype alone would get this ‘Octobers Very Own’ collaboration a lot of attention. Luckily the hype is backed up by a great sneaker. At the eye of the hype tornado of Air Jordans and Drake, these kicks are pretty expensive to cop but if you’re willing to drop around $700 on them, you’re getting something really exclusive.
Nike Air Jordan Retro 15 ‘Cement’
The ‘Cement’ is a weird case in Air Jordans. It’s never seen the kind of hype some other releases have but is probably the most universally agreed on dope sneaker. You’d probably struggle to find anyone who hates it which can’t be said of many other kicks. The Retro release last year capitalized on the enduring name the ‘Cement’ has. They’re easier to cop than ever before and definitely worth it for one of the most consistently stylish sneakers ever released.
