AIR JORDAN XVII COPPER was released on May 31st 2016.
Michael Jordan’s historic career was filled with accomplishments, and reaching the 30,000 point plateau against his former team as a member of the Washington Wizards was just icing on the cake. AIR JORDAN XVII COPPER is filled with luxurious details to prop the silhouette on a pedestal, from the premium synthetic croc-skin detailing on the heel to numerous metallic accents from the bolstered midsole support to the matching lace eyelets.
It’s one of the rare models to not debut in a Bulls-affiliated colorway, and now Jordan Brand is making up for lost time by combining two different eras of Mike’s legendary career for a truly unique release.
Michael Jordan’s time spent wearing the AIR JORDAN XVII COPPER was brief, but he made the most of it by reaching the historic 30,000 point plateau against his old team, the Chicago Bulls. That’s where this AIR JORDAN XVII COPPER rendition comes into play, referencing the historic occasion while revisiting the classic ‘Bred’ aesthetic on a pair that never rightfully claimed the look for itself during its heyday in the early 2000s.
The surprising retro utilizes a premium synthetic croc-skin texture on the heel while matching accents of metallic Gym Red land on the midsole and lace eyelets to further the Chicago Bulls-inspired colorway.
