Jordan Horizon Premium PSNY History

Since the release of Air Jordan I in 1985, the brand has been a leader in producing basketball kicks and eventually leading the shoe category several decades later. For many of the world’s top basketball players owning a pair of Jordans is a significant event in their early hoop life. The recognizable Jumpman logo of Air Jordan comprising a silhouette of NBA legend Michael Jordan performing a slam dunk is the essential game accessory on and off the court.

The first design for the Air Jordan initially involves a familiar Nike Swoosh logo which was no longer featured in succeeding models. This initial release of the first Air Jordan, priced at $65, also featured a Wings logo, composed of a basketball with wings on both sides and an Air Jordan print above the ball. The OG design is comprised mostly of leather overlays on the upper giving the shoe durability on the court and a perforated toe box giving the needed ventilation.

The success of the Air Jordan sub-brand for Nike has continued for more than 30 years since the first Air Jordan. Through the years, however, the brand has been starting to release lifestyle and off-court sneakers to cater to the dynamically changing tastes of the sneaker market. While its retro releases continue to be successful, the company ventured into manufacturing lifestyle sneakers for more styling opportunities to don the highly coveted Jordan silhouettes.

Aside from leather, other materials have been used by the brand including woven materials such as in the Air Jordan Future which eventually became the inspiration behind the Jordan Horizon design which also incorporates the Air Jordan 13 in its sole.

Meanwhile, American fashion label Public School New York led by the creative geniuses Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne has been collaborating with the brand since the Air Jordan 12. Before this, the duo has already been tweaking Jordan silhouettes for exclusive designs. The collaboration on the Jordan Horizon came out in 2017 on the same year that the PSNY x AJ12 design collaboration was also released. A year later, in 2018, the duo came out with another collaborative design with the PSNY x Air Jordan XV sneaker.

Jordan Horizon Premium PSNY Style

The collaboration features a knit mesh fabric upper that has unique patterns that give the sneaker a tribal vibe. As a modern silhouette from the Air Jordan line, the lifestyle pump works well with daytime or night-time activities with its dark colors in the knitted mesh uppers.

Wear them with classic jeans, or a soft jogger, finish the look with a thick jacket, or a hoodie for daytime, and leather or fleece-lined coat for a classy night time look. The collaboration also came out simultaneously with apparel from Public School in the same black and grey tones like track pants and hoodies to match the collaborative shoe. The minimalist tones of black and grey upper also keep this particular style low-key yet stylish enough to muster second glances on the street.

Fit & Sizing

The Jordan Horizon Premium PSNY is a great fitting sneaker with a roomy interior in medium width. The sneaker has regular round laces that are partly hidden by the leather strip lining. The basketball-inspired kick runs true to size and is only available in men’s sizes. Available sizes start from US size 6 to 18 with half-sizes available for a precise fit.

Notable Features

Central to the design of the PSNY x Jordan Horizon Premium are its Air Jordan Future roots with a tightly woven mesh upper, and it's Air Jordan 13 sole unit. The Air Jordan Horizon collaboration with the PSNY fashion label includes patterns are each distinctive on its own with tribal-like designs and intricate detailing for a premium look.  The collaborative model also has a PSNY logo on the tongue with black and grey tones dominating the upper.
