Even though school has started for some, it’s never too late to stay, not only well equipped but well fitted for the remainder of the year. From 1s to 13s, check out all of these Jordan retros featuring timeless designs that will never go out of style.

Air Jordan 4 Military Black

The Air Jordan 4 Military Black pays homage to one of Jordan Brand’s classic colorways, the Military Blue. The Military Blue 4 was one of Michael Jordan’s OG colorways from 1989 when the Jordan 4 debuted. While the sneaker has been retroed three other times, the colorway is still regarded as one of the greatest to hit the Jordan series. This year, instead of bringing back the blue and white sneaker, the brand has switched it out for black in a similar pattern. The Air Jordan 4 Military Black has all the looks of the original 4s colorway but makes it even more versatile for multiple fits. 

Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred

Speaking of new takes on original colorways, 2021’s Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred is a shiny take on the famous Bred Jordan 1. The Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred’s patent leather upper is the sneaker’s instant head-turner, bringing all eyes to your kicks at school. Its signature black and red upper will be a timeless Jordan colorway that will continue to be a popular pick.

Air Jordan 3 Fire Red 2022

The Air Jordan 3 Fire Red returns this year for the first time in its complete OG form. The Fire Red 3 debuted in 1988 when the Jordan 3 hit the hardwood court on MJ’s feet, alongside other notable colorways like the White Cement and Black Cement. The Air Jordan 3 Fire Red features all the elements that make it a true OG remake. From the white tumbled leather uppers and Fire Red accents, to the Nike Air on the heel and the original shape, the Air Jordan 3 Fire Red is here to be your shoe of choice for the year.

Air Jordan 3 A Ma Maniére

Another notable Jordan 3 comes in the form of a collaboration with one of the most popular boutiques in the sneaker game, A Ma Maniére. This collab was birthed in 2021 and brings a more neutral tone to the usually vibrant Jordan 3. But looks can be deceiving, as its slightly minimalist look doesn’t necessarily limit its panache. Its elevated use of suedes and leathers helps elevate the basketball sneaker into a luxury piece. Not only are these kicks executed with such a luxe touch, their mix of white and beige help pair` it with any outfit you put together.

Air Jordan 13 French Blue

The Air Jordan 13 French Blue is another sneaker for everyday wear. This pair takes on French Blue accents on the heel while white tumbled leather on the upper makes it a nice and clean sneaker.
