As May brings spring into bloom, Jordan Brand is preparing for its second major Air Jordan 4 release of the year and another drop from its collaborator in chief.

The Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” follows the Air Jordan 4 “Bred Reimagined” as one of the biggest Js of fthe year, while Travis Scott’s love affair with the Air Jordan 1 Low continues with a colorway modeled after his high school in Texas.

As constructed, the lineup of Air Jordans coming in May otherwise looks light but will grow as more firm release details are confirmed. An Air Jordan 17 Low with a metal brief case, for example, is expected to arrive late in the month for $300 but has yet to be confirmed with official images. As always, Footwear News will keep this post updated as more information becomes available. You can also check out Jordan Brand’s full slate for the summer, which was announced in March.
