Hoop dreams aren’t just for the boys. This January, get reacquainted with the women’s Air Jordan that started it all back in 1998: Air Jordan Women’s OG.
Score a pair of these collectible women’s Jordans in the OG white, University Red and black colorway online or at a Hibbett | City Gear near you starting January 16.
The 2020 re-release of the AJ Women’s OG Retro basketball sneaker takes its design cues from the Air Jordan 13 but adds a bit of 21st-century flair to its overall aesthetic via visible carbon-fiber plating on the mid-foot, a prominently displayed embroidered “W” on the shoe’s heel in black stitching rather than Metallic Silver and a wave-like upper.
The white leather upper artfully swirls with black mesh, while curves and the overall shape provide durability suited for long practices or all-day wear. Dimpled leather overlays add dimension and visible texture to the shoe’s dynamic upper, and perforated holes running along the latter half of the tongue enhance breathability.
Nike Air cushioning bolster’s the shoe’s overall comfort, while the visible midfoot shank keeps arches supported and enhances stability. The outsole includes four hemispheres of rubber pods, strategically providing traction where you need it most.
Black insoles anoint the shoe’s insides, and University Red Jumpman logos on the sides and tongue play well with the other colors.
The retro release, re-entering the market for the first time since its debut, offers the perfect balance of retro appeal and newness with its svelte design and boundary-breaking technology.
