Zion Williamson’s Air Jordan XXXV “Bayou Boys” PE
The upcoming release is inspired by New Orleans and the bond Zion has with his teammates.
Continuing the New Orleans-inspired colorways that Zion Williamson wore during his electric NBA debut last season, the Air Jordan XXXV arrives in a new “Bayou Boys” colorway. Like the “Bayou Boys” AJXXXIV, the XXXV enters rare territory as one of Zion’s few PEs to release to the public.
Highlighted by crackled premium leather, a marbled Eclipse 2.0 Plate, an iridescent connector piece and a gum outsole, the swamp-like aesthetic only tells half the story. Aside from the obvious connection to the region’s marshy terrain, the spirit of Bayou Boys means more to Zion. When working with the Jordan Brand design team, the NBA All-Rookie First Team honoree emphasized the importance of the bond he shares with his teammates. Last season, he even gifted them the AJXXXIV version of the colorway. While the PEs are unmistakably Zion’s, they represent the team-first mentality he’s carried throughout his entire basketball journey.
The Air Jordan XXXV “Bayou Boys” releases on November 21, 2020 from SNKRS and select retailers.
