The short-lived Jordan Nu’ Retro line started over a decade ago and lasted just two models – the Jordan Nu’ Retro 1 and the Nu’ Retro 2. Both designs were revamped and updated spins on the earliest Air Jordan models, with the Air Jordan 1 using the classic Wings logo in larger format on a redesigned Dunk Low-inspired upper. A few GS sizes were brought back in 2007, but one version that never made it to light was this kid-friendly ‘Hearts’ colorway, which features a barrage of soft-colored pastel hearts done all-over style and a confetti graphic on the midsole. Although this 2007 sample was scrapped the heartfelt graphics on the upper and the special laces could pass for a Doernbecher Freestyle design because quite frankly, it looks like a kid designed it!
