With its eye-catching mix of white and red, the Air Jordan 17 OG “Varsity Red,” also known as the “Cherry,” debuted in 2002. The highly praised color scheme is set to make a notable comeback in 2024, marking its first revival since the turn of the century.
This pair of Air Jordan 17s is from the original 2002 production run and has a classic white and red color scheme. Michael wore the style mentioned above when he returned to the court with the Washington Wizards. Notably, this version had performance enhancements never before seen in Jordan Brand shoes. Blow-molded air, a full-length shank plate, and a TPU heel stabilizer are only some of the characteristics described above. The musical notes carved on the removable midfoot cover demonstrate how heavily jazz influences product design. The shoes are stored in a hard-sided suitcase that looks practical and stylish thanks to its use of red and chrome.
Expect the Air Jordan 17 OG Varsity Red to drop at select Jordan Brand shops and Nike.com in 2024, as shown in the images below. Retail is unknown at this moment.
