Nike's co-owned label with Michael Jordan can be credited with producing one of the most successful sneaker lineages of all time, Air Jordan.

Since then, the duo has consistently dropped heavy throwbacks as a part of their collection, including multiple shock drops and collaborations. These sneakers mostly associate with Michael Jordan and his heyday as a basketball legend.

The brand will launch five new iconic Air Jordan makeovers in July 2023. These sneakers will be dropped on the official e-commerce site of Nike, the SNKRS app, and select retailers on their respective release dates.
