The Jordan Jumpman Pro Retro just released in a brand-new mismatched DNA inspired pack.
Paying tribute to his best days as a player, this DNA pack ties in with the recently released Jordan DNA Shorts as it points to Michael Jordan’s time at the University of North Carolina and his time as a Chicago Bull — all at once.
Initially, I thought there was a new colorway that featured a black build and UNC accents — which would have been awesome — but when I clicked on the product page it showed a Black/Red and a Black/UNC pair side-by-side. Admittedly, I was confused and thought someone in charge of imagery messed up, but after further inspection I noticed the Black/Red pair is different than the OG Black/Red pair that released in 2017.
The new Black/Red version features red font on the pull tab, red Jumpman logo on the side panel, red and black checkered TPU shank amongst a few other small changes.
It’s a bit weird seeing the Jordan Jumpman Pro beings used to showcase Jordan’s legacy, but I also think it’s cool for longtime MJ fans — especially longtime fans of the Jordan Brand and its first non-signature sneaker.
