UPDATE: Thanks to Nike Inc we get a treatful view into the shrouded Jordan Future drop. While we gave you a cheeky peek a couple of days back, now we see what all the buzz is about as both the ‘Infrared’ and ‘Glow’ colourways gear up to drop March 15 at Flight 23 in NYC, then a string of select stockists nationwide to follow.
With so much hype looking backwards from the Jordan Brand front, this morning we receive a first glimpse at whats in-store for the future – the Jordan Future. Although this newest forward-thinking design is an off-court sneak, it’s the curious culmination of on-court aspects that is firing off auto-cop alarms down in our financial department. Starting from the bottom, the honourable Air Jordan XI sole lays down the foundations, leaving an off axis laced woven upper to shine hard upstairs. Flick the lights off on these puppies and watch the 3M threading weave its work across the entirety of the upper to light up the sneaks. The purists will most likely hate them, but make the call for yourself and rate them – look for these dropping at select Jordan Brand stockists this coming March 1st, and leave all your flight-fuelled thoughts below.
