The Best Air Jordans Of 2023 (So Far)

From originals like the 'Reimagined' Air Jordan 3 to collaborations with Travis Scott and Union, these are the best Air Jordans releases of the year, so far.

Via Complex

This year’s top Air Jordans run the gamut from originals to brand-new colorways, and from returning retros to collabs. It’s a strong mix, albeit a bit top heavy, that is poised to hold its own not only amongst other Air Jordans, but in the broader 2023 sneaker landscape as well.

The collaborative projects cover a wide spectrum of partners, like staples Travis Scott and Union LA, a return to the Spider-Verse, and even Nike SB. Collaborations do not make up all of the list, as much of what we expect from Jordan Brand is classic, familiar colorways. Some of these came with a twist, like the “Wizards” and “Reimagined” Air Jordan 3s, and some stuck to the basics, like the ”Playoff” Air Jordan 13.

As we hit the halfway mark of 2023, we’re taking a look back at which Air Jordans stood out the most below. These are the best Air Jordans of the year, so far. As with all of our mid-year lists, we reserve the right to shuffle this order up at the end of the year, when we determine with more finality which were the best Air Jordans, and sneakers in general, of 2023.
