air jordan unreleased samples through the years Unreleased Air Jordan Samples Through The Years

Over the years we’ve seen some amazing (and questionable) colorways of Air Jordans and Air Jordan Retros surface on the web. In fact, there might be as many unreleased mock-ups as there are produced versions, but who knows what’s really stowed in the deep dark vaults inside the Jordan Brand headquarters and overseas factories? We’ve compiled a fairly thorough gallery of some notable Air Jordan sample colorways that have never seen the light of day at retail; some of these already have noted legends behind them, like the Air Jordan VI “Infrared” Retro with the flipped midsole and the Air Jordan V “Gold” that may or may not have been made for an employee, but some of the stuff we’ve come across cause us to question why the shoes were never released, or why they were created in the first place! Of course, this gallery isn’t a complete list of every unreleased sample, but take a moment to skim through the gallery below and let us know which unreleased Air Jordan sample catches your eyes the most.

Air Jordan XVII “28 Days of Flight” on eBay

April 25th, 2013 by | 14 comments

air jordan xvii 28 days of flight ebay Air Jordan XVII 28 Days of Flight on eBay

After we unveiled all the winners from the Jordan Brand #XX8DaysofFlight contest, a number of the recipients made the hard decision of putting them up for sale. We’re not seeing the Air Jordan XVII, which looks especially appealing considering it features the nice luxurious black leather upper that we haven’t seen since the shoe first released 2002. Will Jordan Brand ever move forward with a mass-retro of its Air Jordan models in the post-Air Jordan XIV era? Last year’s scrapping of the Air Jordan XVI Retros was rather disappointing, so let’s hope the same fate isn’t met by the XVII. We’ve got a detailed gallery below so take a look and check out the asking price from jamieaustin23 on eBay.

Air Jordan #XX8DaysOfFlight Winners

April 15th, 2013 by | 31 comments

air jordan xx8daysofflight winners Air Jordan #XX8DaysOfFlight Winners

It appears that the massive “XX8 Days of Flight” set of Air Jordans given away by Jordan Brand has finally begun to make its way into the hands of the winners. You’ll recall that entry involved snapping a pic of yourself on Instagram using #XX8DaysofFlight wearing the Air Jordan model corresponding to that day. The black and green sneakers have popped up across Instagram, as the lucky Air Jordan enthusiasts who received their pairs have been eager to show them off (and it looks like Jordan Brand unknowingly selected one user to receive two pairs). Now that the pairs are out there, it will be a test of will power to see who ends up keeping these one of a kind sneakers in their personal collection and who ends up taking the “other” route to cash out, although the 1-of-1 factor might be to tough to let go! Check out most of the Air Jordan “XX8 Days of Flight” pairs that have been doled out right after the jump and tell us in the comments which pair is your favorite.

Wale in Air Jordan XVII “Lightning”

While you wait around to see whether or not the Air Jordan IV “Lightning” materializes in 2013, Wale has that angle covered as far as Air Jordans go. The rapper recently showed up to 106 & and Park taping wearing a lightning-colored Air Jordan of old-the Air Jordan XVII from back in 2002. And given his long-standing sneakerhead status, we have the feeling that this is something that’s been sitting in his closet for a minute rather than a random Flight Club purchase for the NY trip. See all the photos of Wale with his Lightnings on right after the jump and tell us if you’ve gained some more respect for the MMG rapper with this most recent wear.

The news of the entire set of the Air Jordan ‘Black/Neon’ Collection being given away was definitely music to the ears, but no Air Jordan sounded as blissful as the Air Jordan XVII. Directly inspired by Michael Jordan’s love for jazz music, the Air Jordan XVII features musical notes molded into the upper of the shoe, which played right into the grown-up businessman motif of the Air Jordan XVII original release (the shoes came with a dang briefcase). Get a load of the Air Jordan XVII from the ‘Black/Neon’ Collection below and stay tuned for more!
