New Jordans 2016 is debuting the Air Jordan XXX1 Black Cat during the holiday season as a Cyber Monday release. Electing for a crackled leather upper outfitted fully in a dark grey shade, the model sits atop a tonal grey midsole while a translucent outer resides below. Dressed in a Black and Sail color scheme. This Air Jordan XXX1 features a Black nubuck and quilted leather construction inspired by the "Black Cat" alter ego. A clean solid Sail rubber midsole and outsole completes the look. Utilizing Flyweave construction with exposed Flywire cables and a light implementation of patent leather near the rear of the shoe, the model then moves to an enlarged Jumpman at the heel with the Wings logo on the opposite side. A customary white midsole and icy outer below fall right in line with the "Space Jam" 11's OG aesthetic. Today, on the 20th anniversary of Space Jam, we view Michael Jordan’s 31st signature silhouette dressed in traditional black and Concord shades like the original Air Jordan 11 "Space Jam". Jordans 2017 naturally no exception. However, we are surprised that this back to the Jordan brand in the ComplexCon activities displayed in the Air Jordan 31 Black Friday is not just a new color version, this section is more upscale leather and suede made at the same time To highlight the fine car line extraordinary quality, the overall style of the stadium changed the sport, leisure full of design makes people shine. Well, bar one detail – underfoot is a cushy Flightspeed sole unit to keep you feeling comfy. On the Jordan XXXI, a predominantly red upper is interrupted by minor hits of white on the toe, which is perhaps a reference to the Jordan 1 "Chicago" colorway or the classic colors of the Chicago Bulls’ uniform. A skyline graphic graces the red outsole in a subtle nod to Michael Jordan’s city. Completing the set is the upcoming release of the original Jordan 1 "Black Toe," Typically, using old stories to creatively fuel new silhouettes isn’t necessarily the best strategic move. But Jordan Brand, through the "Chicago" and "Shattered Backboard" vignettes, has fared exceptionally doing so on the Air Jordan XXX1. While Michael Jordan’s actual hometown is Wilmington, his name is associated with Chicago more often than not for just reasons such as his six championships with the city and the legacy he created for the windy city’s culture. Jordan Brand will be paying homage to this relationship this year with a new edition of the Air Jordan XXXI and a retro of the classic Jordan 1 "Black Toe". The New Air Jordan Shoes upper is comprised of two components – Flyknit in the forefoot and midfoot sections and a beautiful, soft leather in the heel. These two materials are brought together using Flyweave technology. The marriage of these two materials is perfect: The leather is sturdy enough to provide lockdown in the heel without excessive containment of the foot, and the Flyknit in the forefoot allows for more comfort when making quick/sudden moves like jab steps. The shoe is also supported by Flywire technology which facilitates a lot of the multi-directional cuts that are made on the hardwood. Jordan Brand was able to take the highly popular Zoom cushioning and pair it with FlightSpeed, which gave the shoe excellent court feel, fantastic responsiveness, and great lateral support. What’s more impressive, is that these technologies were assimilated into what was a modified Air Jordan 1 silhouette. The original, innovative and nostalgic designs of the Air Jordan line is why they are at the top of the sneaker mountain, but the ability to weave new technologies into those designs, lends them credibility from a performance standpoint. Support and stability were solid, but unspectacular in the Air Jordan XXXI. Utilizing a similar silhouette to the Air Jordan 1 is great for people with wide feet, as there is plenty of room however it came at the cost of arch support. Adding a well-designed ankle collar to provide extra ankle stability, as well as special padding around the ankle for additional support proved to be effective during weartests. The thin tongue makes it very comfortable at the top of the foot when making quick basketball movements forward.
