With a Fragment Design collaboration already set to arrive next month, the uncharacteristic rollout of the Air Jordan 35 continues today.
The latest look at the brand's new legacy model comes courtesy of Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum, who showed off what could possibly be a PE colorway of the sneakers on the NBA's official sneaker account.
The multicolor style uses a grey base with blue, infrared, and neon accents. Separating this pair from other Jordan 35s we've seen thus far is Air Jordan 5-style "23" block lettering near the heel.
As of now, the Air Jordan 35 has yet to be officially unveiled by Jordan Brand, but more details should be made available soon.
UPDATE (09/24): After it was previewed last month by its sponsored athletes, Jordan Brand has officially unveiled the Air Jordan 35, along with sharing the first look at five colorways that will be part of its release lineup.
For the new signature model, the standout feature is the Eclipse Plate 2.0 in the midsole that improves upon last year's version featured on the Air Jordan 34. The plate now wraps higher along the midfoot to help improve lateral structure and support while Zoom Air units encapsulated at the forefoot and heel allow for additional on-court responsiveness. The upper borrow cues from the classic Air Jordan 5, including the design of the tongue and molded foam pods around the ankle collar.
"Integrating premium materials and textures was a priority for the Air Jordan 35," says Jordan Brand footwear designer, Tate Kuerbis. "The brand has a history of giving these materials an aspirational quality. When players see it, when they touch it, they feel like they have the power of the Jumpman behind them. Everything we do has to tie back to making the best basketball shoe on the planet."
The Air Jordan 35 will debut in the "Center of Gravity" colorway in China starting Sept. 27 before It releases globally on Oct. 17. Preview more upcoming makeups below.
