XXXVI – OG REVEAL
If you google the Air Jordan 36 right now, you’ll probably get a few different-looking results. We’ve got some various looks that have surfaced during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. BUT, the OG colorway is the Black/Hyper Violet/White/Bright Mango color scheme.
It is a VERY different colorway than all of the previous inaugural Air Jordans for a VERY different year. It takes inspiration from a lot of different Nike models like the composite mesh – a feature of the Kyrie 7s. This Jordan also includes an elongated tongue similar to the Jordan 6 that reaches up towards your lower shin.
But, the greatest update in sneaker technology is the curved accent in the center of the midsole. This Jordan 36 comes equipped with an Eclipse Plate 3.0 – a carbon fiber plate for responsiveness and firmness.
Release Date: September 9th, 2021
Style Code: DA9054-004
Retail Price: $185
In terms of colorway, the OG color scheme on this Air Jordan 36 features a LOUD blend of color! It sports violet color blocking with specks of orange accents courtesy of the vibrant outsoles. It also has a clean white midsole with flecks of black detailing all over. More details include the infinity logo on the lateral walls and a heel pull tab with an outward heel webbing.
The Air Jordan 36 drops in GS sizing first before we get an adult pair release. We don’t really know how this Jordan fits, so we’ll have to wait to test it out! But, don’t worry. We’re definitely going to get adult-sizing soon. So, we don’t recommend you cop a pair for yourself and try stretching them. Definitely cop a pair for your kiddo hypebeasts.
Start them with the Jordan love young.
Where to Buy the Air Jordan 36?
The Air Jordan 36 is an OG colorway. Grade school sizing or not, we’re all going to want to cop this Jordan. When it comes to us, we’re copping both sizes.
