Can we just skip 2020 and fast-forward to when life goes back to normal? I’m saying! All humor aside, a silver lining that we have gotten in 2020 are the releases that Jordan Brand has been dishing out. We’re a little bit more than one-third of the way done with 2020, and we’ve already gotten rereleases of classics such as the Air Jordan 6 DMP, Air Jordan 4 Black Cat and Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, while also getting brand new flavors of your favorite retros that include the Off-White x Air Jordan 5, the highly coveted Air Jordan 1 ‘85 Varsity Red, and the slept-on Air Jordan 3 Red Cement.

With a little bit less than two-thirds of the year remaining, what Jordan Brand releases are there to look forward to? Although tough to narrow down, we’ve compiled a list of what we feel are 5 of the best upcoming Jordan drops of 2020. Needless to say, sports would never be the same without Air Jordan. What upcoming Jordan Brand release are you most excited about?

Air Jordan 13 Flint

After years or rumors and speculation, Jordan Brand will finally be bringing back the Air Jordan 13 Flint. Considered one of the best OG colorways of the model, the Air Jordan 13 Flint returns for the first time since 2010 and it does so in true OG form as it mimics the look of the OG pair from 1998. Just like the recently released Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, this is a must-have in everyone’s collection. Look for these to drop on May 30th.

Air Jordan 1 High OG WMNS Satin Snake

I know everyone is waiting for the Air Jordan 1 High OG Chicago to rerelease, and although this is not it, this upcoming Air Jordan 1 High is definitely one that should not be overlooked. Initially believed to be an altered Air Jordan 1 in a Chicago color scheme, leaked images show that this women’s-exclusive colorway of the model is simply a premium variation of the iconic model.

No, it’s not done in exact Chicago color blocking, but it definitely is reflective of the Chicago 1s. That said, the satin and snakeskin textured material for its overall construction will definitely make this a release you should not be sleeping on. Said to be releasing in August, take notice the increase in interest this release will be getting the closer we get to the drop.

Air Jordan 5 Oregon Ducks

No, this won’t be the PE version, but it will be similar to the player exclusive version that was initially released in 2013 without its official school logos. No images of the shoe have been released, but if it looks anything like the PE that resells for thousands of dollars, this will definitely be one of the coolest new Air Jordan 5 colorways that we’ve seen in quite some time. Look for these to drop sometime in August.

Air Jordan 4 OG Fire Red 2020

Arguably one of the best OG colorways of the Air Jordan 4, the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red is slated to get the retro treatment in OG fashion during Black Friday 2020. This means Nike Air on the heels, which would mark the first time the shoe would come with OG branding since the OG dropped back in 1989. I mean, this is definitely a must-cop, right? Maybe even a double-up?

J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 High OG

After a first look during Super Bowl 54 this past February, it was recently announced that the J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 is slated to debut in November sometime during the holiday season. If the shoe does end up releasing, it would mark the first time that a Latino artist collaborates with Jordan Brand. That’s history in the making. A wild-looking Air Jordan 1 to say the least, this J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 High OG will without a doubt be a highly coveted piece of footwear.

Fighting with an injured knee

The most challenging fight for Pawel was the fight in the final of the Open Championship, held in Croatia in 2012.
