Every Air Jordan Retro Reported for 2020

Business is booming for Jordan Brand.

Rivaling the run of the AF1’s retro resurgence in the early 00s, the Air Jordan 1 is far and away the toast of the sneaker culture and it’s been that way for the better part of this decade. The best part for JB? It’s adored in OG and new takes alike.

While the shoe that started it all has the Jumpman in good graces with old and young alike, partnerships with Travis Scott, Paris Saint German, Zion Williamson and a handful of top collegiate programs has Mike and Co. spreading their wings far beyond hardwood heritage.

Thus far, leaks for 2020 Air Jordan retro releases preview a mix of new takes on old favorites, re-retros for the first time ever and homages to OGs with Nike Air. See what’s reported to be on deck – keep in mind nothing is official yet – in the renderings and release calendar below.
