Even in the midst of a global pandemic, with whole countries of people locked inside their homes, basketball has proven its extensive reach. Netflix’s The Last Dance, which chronicled the career of Michael Jordan, has set the world’s mind on hooping. And recently, discussions over recommencing the NBA have kept us talking about the sport. Thanks in part to these big stories, basketball’s reach is at an all-time high, anchored, of course, by the sneaker world’s unending love for Air Jordans.
There has not been a time since the release of the first Nike Air Jordan shoe in 1984 that sneakerheads haven’t been fixated on bagging the newest AJ silhouettes. And while you can easily drop four, even five-figure, sums on new Jumpman kicks, it’s not always necessary. You can introduce them to your rotation without emptying your wallet, and to prove it we’ve rounded up our favorite Jordan sneakers on sale right now.
Keep it classic with this pair of 1s — the OG and probably most easily styled Jordan silhouette and an undeniable icon in the sneaker world. Black uppers contrast with silver straps, swoosh, and heel cap which make this model pop.
Taking many design cues from the Jordan 6, this pair of Jordan True Flights features an unorthodox, zig-zag upper. This is a great, lesser-known alternative to the Jordan 6, and it’s sure to keep people guessing what’s on your feet.
Make an impact this summer with this denim-decked Jordan 6. There’s something about this punchy model that screams exclusive despite its general release status.
The Jordan Retro 13 is a criminally underrated generation of the Jumpman dynasty and this pair proves it. Baby blue works perfectly in tandem with a croc-skin leather upper to make a sleek but eye-catching pair.
Paying homage to the legendary OG Air Max 95 Neon colorway, this Jordan Retro 4 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A cool grey upper is punctuated by hits of neon yellow, making a reference that true sneakerheads will pick up on.
Much like the earlier denim Jordan 6, this sweet, pink-tinged colorway feels as though it could be a highly sought-after rarity. A monogrammed upper adds even more detail to this diamond in the rough.
When has black and gold not worked? The classic color combination ensures that this pair of True Flights will be a central part of any sneaker rotation.
You kind of recognize it but you don’t, right? Well, that’s because the Jordan Mars 270 is a blend of the Air Jordan 1, 4, 5, and 6. This is the modern-day Frankenstein and we’re loving it.
