Jordan Brand is dipping into their archives and bringing us back to the mid 80s with their latest release. The Air Jordan II "White/Red" originally released in 1986 and was known for its refined look and craftsmanship. They were manufactured in Italy, featured faux lizard skin, a Swoosh-less design, and full-length Air unit. Michael Jordan won his first Slam Dunk Contest while wearing the AJII, and 2014 marks only the second time Jordan Brand has re-released the "White/Red" model since it first debuted. A lot of sneakerheads have been anxiously waiting for this release making it another hard to get Air Jordan Retro.

The latest model from the Air Jordan Elements collection, which transfers iconic design elements from one Air Jordan to another, looks very similar to the last release. But instead of silver, it's black. The Air Jordan 5Lab3 "Black 3M"
model borrows the reflective tongue design from the Air Jordan V, features elephant print details (because an Air Jordan III would not be complete without it), has reflective thread on the laces, and a blue-tinted translucent outsole. Like every model in the Air Jordan Elements collection, they are very limited and come packaged in an exclusive box.

sports a classic colorway with white Cordura upper, wraparound black patent leather detail, carbon fiber shank plate, and blue-tinted icey translucent sole. Available in a wide range of sizes, this highly-anticipated sneaker will most likely be the "it" sneaker of summer 2014.

Following his first three-peat, on October 6, 1993 Michael Jordan shocked the world and announced his retirement from basketball. To add to the surprises, he then began to pursue a career in baseball. In 1994, Jordan played for the Birmingham Barons (a Double-A minor league affiliate of the Chicago White Sox), the team that inspired both of these retro models. The Air Jordan 1 "Barons"
and Air Jordan IX "Barons"
both have a striking white, black and grey colorway, which matches the Barons' team colors. The AJIX is also adorned with Jordan's baseball jersey number "45" on the heel to further reinforce the baseball connection. Like most retro Jordan releases, these models are in high demand and available in limited quantities.

The last time Jordan Brand released the iconic Air Jordan 1 "Bred"
model it was 2009 and part of the Defining Moments Pack, which also included a Boston Celtics-inspired Air Jordan 1. Although that was only four years ago (many still have a DS pair from that release), the demand is still extremely high for this 2013 version because of several design differences. The major changes include the upper material, tongue tag, and removal of the "Jumpman" logo on the heel. All of these alterations mean the 2013 version is extremely close to the original, which has also made the demand absolutely huge. Check out the sided-by-side pics for a closer look.

Before Michael Jordan became an international icon. Before he was "Air" Jordan. Before his 2nd retirement and the comeback. Before his 1st retirement and comeback. Before he was Bull, and before he was a Tarheel, Jordan was a Buccaneer at Emsley A. Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. Nike pays tribute Jordan's alma mater with the Air Jordan 1 High OG "Laney."
Inspired by Laney's school colors, the upper features a combination of leather and suede with the leather in Varsity Maize, and the soft suede in Game Royal. They also have mesh tongue with OG "Nike AIR" tongue tag, and staying true to the original Air Jordan 1, the heel is sans "Jumpman." Now available, this is a great addition to any Jordan collection.
