[dropcap]A[/dropcap]s a regular reader of Skinny Muscles, you know all about the festivities in New Orleans which (last week) saw a sneaker game that was as high-scoring as the action on the court. The provocative silhouette of the Air Jordan Future generated considerable buzz among the new styles showing up on elite feet.
Paying tribute to the symbiotic relationship between the court and the street, the Air Jordan Future blends one of the brand’s most iconic designs with a one-piece woven upper to create an entirely new look.
The result is audacious, designed to provoke the continued evolution of the Air Jordan Brand’s off-court lineup.
A carbon fibre plate and full-length air outsole give the Air Jordan Future its lightweight comfort and cushioning. The deconstructed upper foregoes a heel counter and toe enforcer to enhance the minimalist nature of the shoe.
The asymmetrical lacing reduces pressure across the top of the foot, while the suede interior and ankle collar enhance comfort.
Although the shoe features overt design elements with minimal branding, there are some subtle inclusions that make it a standout. Its reflective threading amplifies the woven construction by catching available light and the waxed laces with gold lace tips add to its sophistication.
The Air Jordan Future will debut in two colour ways: Infrared and Glow. Both feature a black woven upper with reflective accents and a semi-translucent outsole either in the iconic infrared or glow-in-the dark colour.
