Proper dues must be paid to the Air Jordan. MJ’s footwear started the trend of releasing big-ticket items on the most infamous shopping day of the year, and it all began in 2008 when the 23rd model of the legacy launched on that fateful day. Since then, Jordan Brand has made it a tradition of sorts to unleash one of the best releases of the year a day after Thanksgiving, with highlights including the Air Jordan 5 “Oreo”, the iconic “True Blue” 3s with Nike Air on the heel, and the stylish “Aqua” edition of the Air Jordan 8.

A couple of years later, the elegant “Sesame” followed suit, while 2019’s occasion promises a re-release of the all-black “Static” version from the recent Summer months.
