Before Jordan’s label moved on to the next silhouette in its line of hoops shots with the release of AJ37, the label obviously gave time to its ancestor, Air Jordan 36. The AJ36 silhouette saw numerous releases from PE circuit over the past few weeks recently released Jayson Tatum’s Taco Jay and Luka Doncic’s Luka; the new colorway is to pay homage to the Chinese community and its star hooper, Guo Ailun.
The upcoming shoe is flashy in a subtle way with bright hits of hyper jade and material contrasts. For this iteration, the Jordan brand decided to don their beloved Air Jordan 36 silhouette in a more vibrant color scheme for the Liaoning Flying Leopard hooper, whose love for the Jordan brand was born from the anime. popular Japanese, Slam Dunk. The Nike website gives a description of the product:
“Suck on the energy that sparked a basketball revolution. One of the lightest AJs to date, these Jordan XXXVI Low Guo PF lows feature a minimal yet durable upper and Zoom Air cushioning for increased responsiveness. It’s decked out in colors that celebrate the greatness of Guo Ailun, the first Chinese basketball player to sign with the Jordan brand. Step onto the court knowing that whatever you’re doing is light work.
The court-ready sneakers are made with angelic white mesh and jacquard gauze patterns. The mesh is accented with side panels and textured tabs in pure white. A flair to the sneakers is added with the addition of metallic silver mudguards that are given a chrome aesthetic. Metallic mud flaps wrap around the entire shoe.
Further touches of chrome metallic aesthetic can be seen on the midsole, with the Guo logo on the heel tabs on the back of the shoe. Heel tabs arrive in a mismatched pattern with “G” and an “A” to give a nod to the CBA baller.
While the metallic accents give the shoe some style, the standout factor comes with the addition of a hyped jade hue. Teal notes stand out among the stem’s mostly neutral palette. Jade Green has been a classic hue for all of its AJ models so far, and the addition of Teal on the latest AJ36 is natural.
Hints of teal and jade green can be seen on the lace toggles, tab branding on the lateral side of the sneakers, Jumpman logo on the tongue and sock liners. Further hits of the Emerald Green hue are seen on the marbled rubber outsole in a splattered pattern.
The Air Jordan 36 Low Guo Ailun was released on Nike’s Hong Kong site for a retail price of HK$1,399. An international release is planned for fall 2022 via the SNKRS app, but there has been no official release information.
