Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue vs Air Jordan 12 ‘Wings’ vs Air Jordan 17+ Copper: Battle of Best Kicks in Town, Which One Is The Best For You?
The best of the Air Jordan line is just about to be seen this year. Though the popular basketball shoes line had amazing releases last 2015, this year is an all-out war for its new designs.
The top Air Jordan types for the year are Air Jordan 11, Air Jordan 12 and the all-new Air Jordan 17+ Copper. To see which of the new releases would fit your personal needs, see our comparison below.
Air Jordan 11 Wide Variety Plus New Retro Low ‘Cherry’ Summer Release
The Air Jordan 11 line has a lot of varieties. According to FightClub, there are about 50 different Air Jordan 11 styles. However, the line’s latest release is the new Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue. KicksonFire just received its first look on the shoes and noted that the Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue is a fit for the spring and summer seasons.
During these seasons, low-top rubber shoes renditions are very useful. Aside from it is flawless use in the basketball ring, the Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue can also be used for practical purposes.
The Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue has the color of its namesake. It also has a “ballistic mesh upper and the patent leather mudguard.” Comfort is still the top priority for the new Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue since it has a gum outsole, a feature that has not been seen on the previously launched Air Jordan 11 styles. Though preview photos were already released, it was not announced when the Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue would come out. However, with the summer season just around the corner, fans could expect the release in the earlier part of the year.
Air Jordan 12—Wings Soaring High
The Air Jordan 12 “Wings” has been one of the most popular headlines over the past week. With multiple feature images released, fans are excited to get their hands on the new Air Jordan 12 release. Just like the Air Jordan 11, the Air Jordan 12 line has multiple varieties, but their newest one would have to be the Air Jordan 12 “Wings.”
The high cut Air Jordan 12 “Wings” is made in black and classic gold. The design is somewhat more formal than the Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue. According to Highsnobiety, the design can be considered as “playoff retro.” It has a wing-graphic embedded in gold, while the black leather upper part soothes the overall surface. The Air Jordan 12 “Wings” also has a side panel, insole and outsole and lace stays. Unlike the Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Blue, the Air Jordan 12 “Wings” is ready for purchase starting Saturday, April 2. The Air Jordan 12 “Wings” is being sold at $225.
Air Jordan 17+ Copper On The Rise
Last but not the least is the Air Jordan 17+ Copper. The good news for fans is it will be released a week after the Air Jordan 12 “Wings.” The exciting back-to-back releases just makes it a lot more challenging for fans to decide which one to buy.
To compare the Air Jordan 17+ Copper from the other two kicks, it is primarily white, but it has an OG Copper colorway, according to KicksonFire. The Air Jordan 17+ Copper also comes as a revival for the Air Jordan line because it has been about 14 years since the style was first released.
The comeback was a pleasure since it has been an improvement on the previous 2002 version. It is made of white leather and it has croc skin layers at the back. The copper overlays can be seen at the tongue and heel of the Air Jordan 17+ Copper. It also has some blue accents on the soles.
The Air Jordan 17+ Copper will be available on April 9 for $250.
