Jordan Brand to “Remaster” Retros for Spring 2015

June 9th, 2014 By

Air Jordan retros continue to increase in popularity release date after release date, and yet some sneaker collectors still bicker about the quality of today’s signatures when compared to the original mock ups. Jordan Brand looks to fix that problem with their new Remastering program that looks to increase the quality of each silhouette thanks to a closer inspection when working with the factories. The new focus on craftsmanship obviously means that each sneaker will see a price increase, and according to Sole Collector, ““10%-15% depending on the model” is what you can expect for sneakers released in the 30th year of Jordan’s signature lineage. What do you think of the new initiative to ensure quality in Jordan retros despite the price increase? Stick around after the click for a better look and check out the latest Jordan updates via our release dates page.
