The Rui Hachimura x Air Jordan is the embodiment of the dynamic nature of contemporary sneaker release dates. Initially scheduled to release in the later part of 2021, it was postponed until February of this year, and again until March 24, however that day has come and went with no release. As it currently stands, exactly when these will release remains a mystery.
