These Official Photos Arrive Right Before The Jordan 17+ “Copper” Returns Next Week

Michael Jordan’s professional basketball career has been nothing short of illustrious, yet his run as a member of the Washington Wizards upon his return is not considered the most memorable. Even if Jordanheads do not recall much of it, they at least likely remember all the kicks that the G.O.A.T. had rocked and Jordan Brand had dropped. Unless they have already flown off the shelves, the “French Blue” and “Wings” colorways of the Air Jordan 12 will be dominating this weekend. However, next week is scheduled to mark the return of another iconic Air Jordan from the early 2000s era.It is next week that the Air Jordan 17+ “Copper” makes its much-awaited comeback. This sneaker is recognized as one of the most premium Air Jordan renditions of its time. It was back in September last year when rumors began circulating that Jordan Brand were bringing back this Air Jordan 17+ iteration to receive the retro treatment for the very first time. Considering that this sneaker has only arrived at retailers once, it seems obvious that Jordanheads will be rushing to select retail stores when the Air Jordan 17+ “Copper” finally returns next week after nearly 14 years.The upcoming sneaker will actually be more of a remastered version that a retro because it will resemble the original. As can be seen in these official photos, the uppers are primarily made up of premium white leather with overlays of black faux croc leather present over ankles and the tongues. This colorway gets its nickname from the hits of copper that can be spotted over the heels and lace eyelets, as well as the Jordan branding that is featured on the heels, toe boxes and tongues.While not exactly exclusive sneakers, their $250 retail price does make it seem like they are, but then again it makes sense, considering that they might come in a carrying case. Jordanheads will end up finding out when the Air Jordan 17+ “Copper” becomes available once again on April 9th.Air Jordan 17+ Retro CopperWhite/Metallic Copper Coin-Black-Sport RoyalRelease Date: April 9th, 2016832816-122 | $250
