Released: March

When we introduced the Jordan Future in January, we noted it represented Jordan Brand's first foray into a pure play lifestyle shoe. Combining a woven upper with the familiar XI sole married modern minimal tastes with the Jumpan's on-court legacy. It's a simple chukka that menswear dudes in cuffed chinos and streetwear heads in jogger pants could equally rock. The first models became a non-retro release that generated as much hype as a retro, partly thanks to a super limited, retail-only sales strategy. While some people claim the shoe's been done to death, models like the Jordan Future Premium prove that the silhouette is here to stay—and will only get better with age. — Jian DeLeon
