Drake’s Gold Dipped Air Jordan 20 PE Emerges

Though the emergence of Drake’s Nike NOCTA Hot Step 2 signature model exemplifies him leaning towards the Swoosh in recent years, his era with the Jumpman left an indelible mark during the 2010s. A handful of releases brought his collection to the general public, but many, many more were issued to Drizzy personally in the years surrounding those drops. New photos have just emerged of another shoe from that time period, a gold-centric Air Jordan 20 PE.

These flip the color scheme we now associate most with Drake’s Jordans, the white and gold combination that graced pairs like the “OVO” Air Jordan 8, 10 and 12. “Flip” is the operative word there, as those publicly released versions put a snowy platinum white front and center. On this PE, it’s in distant second place, with reflective champagne/championship gold the dominant tone. Iconic AJ20 design features like the intricately patterned strap and detached ankle collar share that shade, while neighboring hues of brown and sand hit the sockliner and outsole.

While we’re unsure of the exact timeframe for this PE, one has to imagine that the silhouette’s 2015 retro run is a decent approximation. Regardless of where they land on it, this illustrates a formative point in the Drake x Air Jordan timeline, helping us understand the inspiration behind pairs we can actually get our hands on.

Staying on the JB side of things, the Air Jordan 5 “Sail” shapes up as this weekend’s biggest release.
