It is no secret that Michael Jordan's basketball career and all the products that he has helped endorse have made him a billionaire.  One of Jordan's most recognizable brands is Nike shoes, and both old and new models are often prized by collectors.  Spring 2015 has a lot to offer with the Air Jordan brand, and here are some Air Jordan Sneakers Release Dates for 2015, like the Dub Zero and the Air Jordan 7 Retro. 

According to 23isback, Spring 2015 is going to "mark the birth of a new era in the history of Air Jordan sneakers".  This year is the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 1, and there will also be many new remastered Jordan releases as well.  The remastered shoes are a part of bringing back old Air Jordan shoes from different eras, but with a higher grade of materials. 

The release date for the 2015 Remastered Jordan shoes is due to the materials for the shoes not being available, and some of the tanneries and vendors who made previous Air Jordan shoes are no longer in business.  It was necessary to find newer materials to undergo tests for performance, colorfastness, as well as the usual wear and tear. 

The 2015 Air Jordan Remastered Retro lineup will focus on three of its models including the Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 7, and the Air Jordan 10.  According to the Latin Post, there will be two models to be released this weekend that are sure to be in high demand: the Jordan Dub Zero and the Air Jordan 7 Retro

The Jordan Dub Zero, Teal Edition, is planned for release this Saturday, March 7.  This Dub Zero edition has a teal-based upper part that is combined with white, light green, blue graphite, and black on the outsole.  It also has laser-etched graphics and a speckled midsole, and it can be purchased for $160 at Nike.com as well as Nike stores. 

As for the Air Jordan 7 Retro, it has a lot of nostalgia to it as its colors make it the "Barcelona" edition.  It was inspired by the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, when Jordan his U.S basketball team, or "Dream Team", swept the gold medal for basketball.  The colors harken back to the time of the Olympics in Spain with Blue Graphite, Retro, and Infrared 23 in order to represent Barcelona's night life, according to Patrick Johnson of Sneaker News

Initially, it was thought that the colors of the sneakers were meant to reference Looney Tunes, which makes a lot of sense.  In 1992, Michael Jordan appeared in a Superbowl commercial for Nike with Bugs Bunny, an ad that achieved so much praise that it "inspired" the movie Space Jam

Like the Dub Zero, the Air Jordan 7 Retro will appear at 10 A.M. EST on Saturday for a price of $190.  It will also have grade school sizes for $140, preschool size for $80, and even toddler size for $60. 

Keep in mind that the Air Jordan 7 Retro and the Dub Zero are only two Air Jordan brand shoes to be released this month.  More is coming every Saturday, according to Sole Collector, and you should head to Nike.com to keep track of even more release dates on Air Jordan shoes to come for 2015.
