The Air Jordan 6 colorways that will join this year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will include the collaborative Aleali May iteration as well. Earlier this month, Jordan Brand released an Air Jordan 6 colorway dubbed “Green Abyss” in GG sizes for the younger, female sneakerheads. This iteration retailed at a price of $140 on March 2nd, 2019. Its uppers were mostly clean White, but the Green Abyss hue that it got its nickname from also made an appearance, predominantly over the top portion of the sneaker. In addition, Laser Fuchsia-colored accents could also be spotted, which added a further pop of color to this lively yet plain iteration.
The Aleali May x Air Jordan Is Arriving Later In March 2019 For Women
In case you may have forgotten, Aleali May’s Air Jordan 6 colorway is nicknamed “Millennial Pink” and is even being referred to as “Rust Pink.” Although official photos of this colorway were published only recently, the sneaker itself had already been unveiled last year. It has also been confirmed that it will be joining this month’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019. This colorway actually gets one of its nicknames from the pastel Rust Pink hue that covers a majority of its uppers. Additionally, Bright Crimson also appears over the branding and other detailing. Once it hits the shelves, this Air Jordan 6 colorway will be available in women’s sizes.
The Oregon Ducks Women’s Basketball Team Received Air Jordan 6 PE
It is no secret that the Oregon Ducks basketball and football teams have a rather longstanding relationship with Jordan Brand, and have received numerous Air Jordan PE pairs over the years. Most recently, photos surfaced of an Air Jordan 6 PE colorway that was exclusively designed for the Oregon Ducks women’s basketball team. Along with its plain White smooth leather uppers, it featured accents covered in a fluorescent Green hue as well as Black-colored detailing, matching the team’s “2.0” uniforms. Additionally, each shoe had an “O” perforated onto its outer side and featured a Metallic Silver-colored shroud to hide its satin-like laces from view.
This year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will include this Air Jordan 9 colorway dubbed “Dream It, Do It” inspired by Nike‘s historic slogan. During the NBA All–Star Weekend, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 9 “UNC” on February 9th, 2019 at a price of $190. It was dressed up in the same color scheme of Midnight Navy, University Blue and White as the Air Jordan 9 Low “Pearl Blue” from 2002. The upcoming colorway of the Air Jordan 9 that you see here could potentially remind you of an Air Jordan 9 NRG Boot colorway that was released last year, although the two are considerably different.

The Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It” Is A Nod To The “Just Do It” Slogan
It is apparent that the “Dream It, Do It” nickname is inspired by Nike’s “Just Do It” slogan. However, the first thing you will likely notice about this Air Jordan 9 colorway is that the color scheme of the left and right shoe is mismatched. The overall color scheme though also seems to be inspired by the ‘90s. Despite being mismatched, the shoes have predominantly Black-colored uppers, with varying Dark Concord-, Teal– and University Red-colored accents. Each of the heels also features the embossed, circular “Jumpman” branding and the “23” beneath it. The Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It” has actually already joined recent Air Jordan releases 2019.
The History Of Nike’s “Just Do It” Slogan
There is no doubt that Nike’s “Just Do It” slogan is nothing short of legendary. However, its origin is something that not even Nike’s most loyal fans may expect or know about. Dan Wieden, advertising executive and co-founder of the Wieden+Kennedy agency, was the one who coined the “Just Do It” slogan. While the slogan itself is supposed to be motivational, its origin is somewhat dark and macabre. Dan actually came up with this slogan after drawing inspiration from Gary Gilmore‘s last words “Let’s do it,” who had been executed back in 1977 for two different murders. Despite its morbid origin, “Just Do It” remains as Nike’s iconic slogan.
