The news of the 2015 remastering of Air Jordan retros has resulted in a load of early photos featuring next year’s Jordans. Normally at this time we’d be stuck pondering what was to come based off early product sheets and such, but this time around we’ve got high res previews of everything for your viewing pleasure. This time around: the Air Jordan 7 “French Blue”. So far the group of Spring 2015 Air Jordans has been a newer leaning group, and this retro+ colorway sticks with that trend.

Jordan Brand is going way back to the dawn of Retro+ colorways for their 2015 remastering process. Hence the retun of the Air Jordan 4 “Columbia” with its lush leather build. If the info coming from Jordan Brand is to believed, the pair should show up with materials that are a cut above what we’re used to, Jumpman branding that is finely detailed, and lines that adhere to those found on the original Air Jordan IV. Of course all this is not without its price: Jordan retros prices are expected to increase “10%-15% depending on the model” as a result. There are full images for the Jordan 4 “Columbia” below, so get a glimpse and wait with us for this exciting retro.

Is the Air Jordan 4 “Oreo” the most anticipated pair amongst the remastered Jordans for 2015? We’d say so – the only pair really threatening that spot is the other early Retro+ creation the “Columbia”, but the Oreo might have a bit more steam thanks to its slightly more OG style derived from the speckled touches. Thankfully we’ve got a whole host of detailed images to help familiarize you with the 2015 version of this sometimes-forgotten Jordan gem. See those below and check back in with us in the coming months for an “Oreo” Air Jordan 4 release date.

A History of Luxury Sneaker Copycats

saint laurent jordan 1 A History of Luxury Sneaker Copycats

Yesterday, news broke that New Balance is suing Karl Lagerfeld over a sneaker being sold by the German fashion designer that features an awfully NB-looking shape, complete with an “K” across the side in place of the usual “N”. That sort of appropriation is nothing new in terms of luxury brands though, and there are plenty of other pairs on the market that owe varying degrees of their DNA to more pedestrian sneaker designs. Legal activity in this realm isn’t an entirely new thing either – Jordan Brand previously chased down Gourmet for their tributes and even New Balance had previous a win in this category following their settlement with Louis Vuitton over a 574 ripoff from 2009.
