The Jordan Air Cadence blends modern craftsmanship with subtle heritage-inspired design elements to create a sporty and streamlined design built for life on the go. Visible Nike Air tech in the heel gives you impact cushioning, while a plush collar and tongue combine with a molded footbed to keep you comfortable all day long. A low-top silhouette and heel pull tab ensure an easy fit, so you can lace up and keep it moving. This special-edition colorway is a shared effort from long-time collaborator Fragment, featuring subtle co-branding and shades of Particle Grey.
Self-described “cultural DJ” Hiroshi Fujiwara has been credited with a lot, including the pivotal role he played in starting and defining streetwear fashion as it’s known today. But he’s still earning his props, and this latest collab represents the second chapter of his work with the Jordan Brand after their highly coveted AJ1 collaboration in 2014.
Along with two other footwear pieces and an apparel collection, this AJ3 rounds out the Fragment x Jordan collaboration by applying Fujiwara’s attention to detail to one of the most beloved Jordan silhouettes. The black and white ‘Orca’ color scheme plays on his earlier Nike work, while a fully spelled-out SKU on the midsole draws a connection between the art and business of streetwear. A stamped Fragment logo appears above the midsole and again underneath a translucent Jordan logo on the heel to make a tasteful, but subtle imprint.
Sporting a “Sail/Black-Varsity Red” mix, you’ll find messages throughout the model, from “No Photos” on the heels to “Wear Me” on the tongue tabs. “Not For Resale” insignia hits the midsole in a contrasting black and “Crease Me” hits on the toe box finish off this coveted colorway.

Michael Jordan’s empire has expanded vastly since its beginnings in 1984. From the original Jordan 1 to now, Jordan Brand has grown into a complete lifestyle brand. While offering shoes for multiple sports and off the court, the expansion has led Jordan into the realm of fashion.
The ‘Pinnacle’ collection comes full force on the 25th anniversary of Jordan’s first NBA Title in 1991. The main release arrives in the form of a metallic gold Jordan VI, modeled after the NBA’s Larry O’Brien championship trophy and the famed “Security” jacket. The jacket is inspired by those seen in the iconic photo of Jordan exiting his Ferrari before Game 5 of the 1992 Conference Semifinals. The jackets were worn by MJ’s private security outfit, and have been repurposed for the new collection.
Rounding out the new line is a black, tonal warm-up shirt and short sleeve “1991” hoodie. These select pieces will be available Saturday, October 22, 2016, in store at RSVP Gallery. For more information email [email protected] or call (773) 770-666.
