From the mind of Marcus Jordan and the legacy of Michael Jordan, Trophy Room is a speciality sneaker store known for its high heat offerings with an array of exclusive sneakers to shop from. The store itself is an ode to Marcus’ father and the OG GOAT, Michael Jordan.
Inspired by the actual trophy room at the Jordan family residence, Trophy Room merges past and present as the Orlando-based sneaker store is emblematic of the origins and trajectory of Air Jordan.
The store’s interior includes displays of trophies, photos, and memorabilia belonging to Michael Jordan and his iconic career. The trophy room in the Jordan house was always the spot for family gatherings and holiday celebrations, and also served as a reminder to Marcus to strive for greatness.
Marcus wanted to recreate this feeling for Jordan fans and sneakerheads alike, which Trophy Room aims to do through showcasing Jordan family home videos and photos throughout the store.
Trophy Room is also recognized for its exclusive Air Jordan collabs, which have been a regular occurrence since the store’s inception and have included both fan-favorite and sleeper silhouettes.
While we patiently wait for the upcoming Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Low OG to release this holiday season, take a look at the full Trophy Room x Air Jordan timeline below.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 23 “White”
Release Date: May 23, 2016
To celebrate the launch of Trophy Room, Marcus Jordan worked with Jordan Brand to release a collaborative Air Jordan 23. Only 523 individually numbered pairs were available globally. The white leather upper features Michael Jordan’s initials, as well as his signature on the toe cap. The tongue displays “5” and “23” as a reference to Marcus’ and his father’s jersey numbers.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 23 “Black”
Release Date: May 28, 2016
Limited to 5,000 pairs, this online exclusive followed the previous white/gold iteration that only had 523 pairs released. Each shoe is individually numbered and was released during the store’s grand opening on May 23rd. The shoe boasts MJ’s initials on the upper and signature on the toe cap. It also features golden “HEIR JORDAN” lettering on the tongue and Trophy Room branding on the translucent outsole.
Trophy Room x Jordan Reveal “Black Pine”
Release Date: August 27, 2016
In celebration of Trophy Room’s first three months in business, Marcus Jordan unveiled a Trophy Room x Jordan Reveal collab. The sneaker has an all black upper with the shop’s logo on the heel tab. Yellow and green highlights dress the tongue and lining, with a gradient stripe going down the middle of the shoe.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 16 “Rose Gold” Sample
This unreleased Air Jordan 16 sample has a metallic rose gold upper and was made to look like a real life trophy, with “Trophy Room” text printed on the lace cover. This sneaker never officially released as Marcus Jordan decided to move forward with a “French Blue” iteration instead.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 16 “French Blue”
Release Date: November 5, 2016
For their second collaboration, Trophy Room and Jordan Brand dropped the Air Jordan 16 “French Blue.” Limited to 5,000 pairs, the campaign featured fellow Florida-man DJ Khaled, who was selected to reveal the sneaker. The upper has monochromatic French Blue patent leather overlays, a premium leather shroud, and an icy translucent outsole. On release day, DJ Khaled hosted a pop-up event at Tier Nightclub in Orlando.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 17 “Cool Grey”
Release Date: October 28, 2017
In October 2017, Marcus Jordan released the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 17. This sneaker has a cool grey suede build with a removable lace cover and a line of music notes on the side. The midsole, lining, and tongue are all black, while the heel counter has a metallic gold finish that corresponds with the eyelets. This silhouette was originally released in 2002 and was the first shoe to feature Jordan’s Blow-Molded Air system, a full-length composite shank plate, and TPU heel stabilizer.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 5 “Ice Blue”
Release Date: May 18, 2019
Keeping the Jordan Family trophy room as the main point of inspiration, this Trophy Room x Air Jordan 5 features a translucent rubber sole with a wood-grain finish designed to look like the court-style flooring found in MJ’s trophy room. Released in May 2019, only 7,000 pairs were available with each set individually numbered. The sneaker has smooth “Ice Blue” suede with accents of “University Red,” “Sail,” and a metallic gold lace lock. The lateral heels of the sneaker are embroidered with metallic gold numbers that correspond with both “MJ” jersey numbers — 23 for Michael and 5 for Marcus.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 5 “Friends & Family”
Alongside the Air Jordan 5 mentioned above, Trophy Room also released a “Friends & Family” iteration. This sneaker was limited to only 223 pairs and exclusively given to close friends and family of Marcus Jordan. The shoe has the same details as the “Ice Blue” pair, with the biggest difference being the “University Red” suede upper, representing Michael Jordan’s iconic run with the Chicago Bulls.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG SP “Chicago“
Release Date: February 10, 2021
Marcus Jordan reimagined the legendary Air Jordan 1 “Chicago,” a colorway that served as moment in sports, sneakers, and Jordan Family history. Limited to just 12,000 pairs, the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG SP “Chicago” added more sports history to the colorway as this iteration was inspired by the “freeze out.” In 1985, when Michael Jordan played in his first ever All-Star Game, MJ was reportedly denied the ball by fellow teammates who wanted to embarrass him as a rising star. The “freeze out” is materialized by the sneaker’s frosty finish across the iconic red leather overlays.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG SP “Friends & Family”
Marcus Jordan made history of his own with this one (IYKYK), but this Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG SP “Chicago” was reserved for friends and family. While we may never know the true story behind the infamous blue laces, this sneaker boasts all the same details as the aforementioned pair. Ironically, the phrase “Rumor has it …” is printed on the laces, which is yet another nod to the 1985 NBA All-Star Game controversy.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 “New Sheriff in Town”
Release Date: November 3, 2022
Taking inspiration from the 1992 Barcelona Games, the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 “New Sheriff in Town” celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the silhouette and the original Air Jordan 7 “Olympic.” The sneaker has a suede upper with a red base, ivory overlays, a navy neoprene tongue, and multicolor heel tabs that nod to the Olympic rings. Other notable details include a Jumpman on the ankle, mismatched heel badges with the Trophy Room logo, and MJ’s Olympic jersey number. On the back of the tongue, “New Sheriff in Town” is embroidered, which is a reference to the taunting one-liner that MJ said to Magic Johnson and Larry Bird during an infamous Dream Team scrimmage.
