Zion Williamson starts the new season wearing the Air Jordan XXXV in exclusive player edition (PE) styles. This year’s pairs evolve from last year’s PEs, which paid tribute to New Orleans, Zion’s family and his roots in South Carolina. Of what’s important to him in a game shoe, Zion says: “I always gravitate towards a shoe that’s comfortable, durable and stylish on and off the court. When you put on some Jordans fresh out the box, people know what it is.”
Here is a running list that’s being updated throughout the season.
Air Jordan XXXV “Bayou Boys Alt” PE
3/7/21: The Air Jordan XXXV “Animal Instinct” PE references crocodiles as well as Zion’s quick instincts on the court.
Air Jordan XXXV “Voodoo” PE
1/27/21: The Air Jordan XXXV “Voodoo” PE has a voodoo-inspired purple print, exposed stitching and a special graphic on the heel.
Air Jordan XXXV “Home Team” PE
1/6/21: The Air Jordan XXXV “Home Team” PE is inspired by the colors and passion of New Orleans football.
