Since 2005, Jordan Brand has taken design elements from signature Air Jordan’s and combined them with updated technology. This brought forth the beginning of the hybrid, a ‘fusion’ of different Air Jordan’s into one new silhouette. Here we focus on models released by Jordan Brand which feature different signature shoes put together, not updated or casual versions of classics such as the Jordan True Flight, Prime 5 and 2.0 to name a few. Check out our comprehensive guide to mash-up Air Jordan’s below.
Jordan AJF 3:
The Jordan AJF 3 was one of the more popular models in the Nike x Jordan Brand ‘Fusion’ series. Taking elements from the Air Jordan III and combining them with the Nike Air Force 1 Low, complete with a visible Air unit in the heel and cement print detailing. We saw everything from OG colorways of the AJ III, HOH exclusives and limited LS releases drop.
Jordan AJF 4:
Along with the AJF 3, the Jordan AJF 4 also did well at retail and was somewhat tolerated by sneaker heads. They even featured a visible Air unit in the heel, just like the Air Jordan IV along with mesh netting and a wing on the sides. All four original colorways of the AJ IV made their way onto the AJF 4 as well as the ‘Laser’ editions found on two Air Jordan 4 Retro’s from 2005.
Jordan AJF 5:
The AJF 5 was the second model released in the Jordan AJF series. They followed the AJF 12 and brought the Air Jordan V to the Nike Air Force 1 in 2008. They were released in both high and low top form. The high’s featured a strap with mesh netting while the lows featured an ‘Is It The Shoes?’ printed graphic throughout the upper. Unlike the AJF 3, AJF 4 and AJF 6, the AJF 5 did not feature a visible Air unit in the heel however, they did feature the flame from the AJ V on the midsole.
Jordan AJF 6:
Continuing on with the Jordan Fusion line is the Jordan AJF 6. Like the AJF 5, these too were released in both high and low top form. The high’s featured an ankle strap while the lows did not. The AJF6 also featured a visible Air unit in the heel, like the AJF 3 and AJF 4. Original ‘Infrared’ colorways of the Air Jordan VI were released along with a few new ones.
Jordan AJF 8:
The Air Jordan VIII also made its way into the Jordan Fusion line. The Jordan AJF 8 came out in all three original AJ VIII colorways as well as a couple others, in 2010.
Jordan AJF 9:
The Jordan AJF 9 touched down in 2009. Combining the Nike Air Force 1 with the Air Jordan IX. They were released in both high and low top and included all original colorways of the AJ IX as a ‘Blue Pearl’ 2002 Air Jordan 9 Retro Low inspired pair.
Jordan AJF 10:
In 2010, the Air Jordan X joined the Nike Air Force 1 in the Jordan Fusion series. The Jordan AJF 10 features an AJ X-based upper with the iconic MJ ‘Achievements’ found on the bottom of the sole. Three colorways were originally set to drop however, only two made their way two retail, the OG ‘Steel Grey’ and ‘Shadow’ editions.
