One word to describe Jordan Brand’s 2022? More. This year, Jordan saw more collaborations, more coveted colourways and more silhouettes. Unlike past years which were all about the Air Jordan 1, 2022 put a bigger focus on heritage silhouettes like the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 4. However, it was predictably the Air Jordan 1 Chicago “Lost & Found” that was a strong contender for sneaker of the year. Here, we take a look back at the best Jordan releases of 2022 that are now in-stock at Laced. 

Air Jordan 1 High OG Chicago “Lost & Found”

One of the most sought-after sneakers of 2022, the Air Jordan 1 “Lost & Found” is inspired by the ageing process of hard-to-get retro sneakers. The picture of what an original Air Jordan 1 Chicago would look like if it was found in an old, dusty stock room, the Lost & Found brings this legendary colourway to a whole new generation of fans. 

Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low Reverse Mocha

Presented in a slightly lighter colourway than its predecessor, the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG SP x Travis Scott Reverse Mocha arrives in the Texas-born rapper’s signature coffee-inspired hue. Scott’s famous “Cactus Jack” branding, a reverse Swoosh and premium leathers all work in tandem to secure this AJ1 Low’s place as one of 2022’s most wanted collaborations.

Air Jordan 4 Military Black

A heritage style steeped in basketball history, the Air Jordan 4 Military Black showcases the same colour blocking featured on the 1989 release. Rendered in neutral hues and accented with Jumpman branding, advanced cushioning and breathable mesh panels deliver the durability this Jordan is known for. 

Air Jordan 4 Zen Master

From Jordan’s spring roster, the Air Jordan 4 Zen Master drew its inspiration from Michael Jordan’s coach, Phil Jackson, who encouraged meditation and a zen mindset before games. Dressed in a pastel tie dye with semi-translucent hardware, this sneaker was one of several AJ4s to command attention in 2022. 

Air Jordan 3 OG Fire Red 2022

A reissue of the legendary Air Jordan 3 Fire Red from 1988, the 2022 edition nods to the original with “NIKE AIR” branding, a cracked-effect midsole and Jumpman insignia on the tongue. With Tinker Hatfield’s legendary Air cushioning underfoot for all-day comfort, this retro-inspired sneaker was just one of a long list of reimagined originals to come from Jordan Brand in 2022.
