Brand New Jordans finally Unveiled?

The Air Jordan 35 released in September 2020, only a few months ago. Yet it seems that Jordan Brand is already preparing for the release of its successor – the Jordan 36 (XXXVI).

The sneaker was originally unveiled by WNBA player Satou Sabally, who – being a key ambassador of the brand – received an early pair directly from Jordan Brand. However, the video posted on Twitter only briefly showed the sneaker, with many questions remaining unanswered and sneakerheads demanding a better look at the shoe.



A few days later, the sneaker was spotted on feet of Celtics player Jayson Tatum during a pre-game warm up, finally providing fans with a better look. The sneaker confirms previous leaks and blurry images – a clean silhouette with a purple mesh upper that stretches from the heel to the toe seamlessly. The sole consists of a purple-white contrasting mudguard and midsole that is connected by the beloved black Eclipse Plate, as seen on the 34 and 35. Matching the heeltabs, the rubber outsole is dressed in a striking orange tone, adding to the vividness of the shoe. The original Jordan logo is only spotted on the tongue element, while the lateral tags sport a Jordan infinity logo.


The Jordan 36 shows the path that Jordan Brand aims to take. After the Jordan 35 only being a minimal upgrade to the Jordan 34, the Jordan 36 implements a completely redesigned look which harmonically combines athleticism and aesthetics. Of course, the sneaker is constructed with Basketball performance in mind, but be sure that the sneaker is more than street-ready!


There has been no official announcement or statement made by Jordan Brand, but speculations indicate to a release in the upcoming months, getting fans’ hopes up of a release before Autumn 2021! Whether this colourway will be the original, or whether the brand decides to rethink the colour blocking and keep this beautiful purple a sample version remains to be seen. The shoe definitely has potential, especially if dressed in classic colourways, such as a Bred or Royal version.
