The new Air Jordan XXX1 brings you back in time, to the early days of Jordan’s career – the on-court flare of gold chains and high-flying dunks. The sneaker reintroduces the Nike swoosh, for the first time on a Jordan model since the His Airness’s debut silhouette. While aesthetically taking a few pages out of the Jordan 1 design, the newest addition to the Jordan line continues to implement cutting-edge advancements with FlightSpeed technology with full-length Zoom Air. The most unique aspect of the shoe’s design is the combination of Flyweave technology with traditional synthetic leather to made an upper that blends the both seamlessly. The two seemingly contradicting materials actually fuse together well and create a very snug yet flexible fit. This combination also fits perfectly in line with the inclusion of the Jordan jumpman and Nike swoosh logos, appearing together on the outside of the upper. Of course, the big bold design statement lies within the translucent red waffle outsole, with the extra large letters spread across the shoe, heel to toe – BANNED.
