Latest Jordans 2017, This luxe update to the otherwise sporty performance basketball sneaker shows the Air Jordan XXXI in a new light, opening up possibilities for potential lifestyle releases in the future. Shared by Jordan Brand employee Frank Cooker on Instagram, this Air Jordan XXXI features a soft gray upper in what appears to be suede. The shoe's standout feature, however, is its snakeskin overlays at the Swoosh, tongue and heel. The Air Jordan XXX1 Snakeskin is another luxurious version of the Air Jordan XXX1 that receives a textured makeover. This Air Jordan XXX1 features a Grey suede upper with snakeskin detailing on the tongues, heel, back midsole and Nike Swoosh logos. Replacing the large Jumpman logo on the ankle collar is the classic Wings logo. A solid White midsole and rubber outsole completes the look.
New Jordans 2016 is making history again with the red-and-black Air Jordan XXXI release in 2016. The new basketball shoe is the first to incorporate a woven material in the front part of the shoe with a leather upper. The material in the front of the shoe is a weave — called a flight weave — that combines great flexibility with great comfort. The designers used embroidery to bring the flight weave and the leather together into an unforgettable look. An unbelievable 100 people made the design happen, including MJ himself. The new edition of the Jordan 1 sees the upper of the previous Shattered Backboard colorway slightly revamped, as the orange toe box has been replaced with white leather and the black overlays have been replaced with orange. Additionally, the Jordan XXXIs will share a similar motif, featuring a predominantly orange and black upper. As the name suggests, the shoe reflects a moment in Jordan history when during a Nike exhibition in 1985, the GOAT dunked so hard the backboard literally shattered. The newest updates to the “Shattered Backboard” series include renditions of both the Air Jordan 1s and the Air Jordan XXXIs.
What's fun about this Jordans 2017 sneaker is that it is an homage to the Air Jordan I sneaker that the NBA banned back in October, 1984. The new XXXI and the retro Air Jordan I was both available in retail stores. Let's take a step into history to revive the Air Jordan I original release tale. So far, the Air Jordan XXXI has been a love/hate shoe — most love the design, and the cushioning, and the materials, but hate the traction . Luckily, even if the performance is a little off, the colorways have been niiiice. The USA, the Rio, the Banned, and the Shadow (or Signing Day, whichever you prefer) have all been hot. With a black and orange FlyWeave forefoot and orange synthetic leather heel and ankle, the upper is very close to the Banned colorway. What separates the Shattered Backboard is the sole — either tan or gum rubber brings the bottom to the top and makes this colorway pop.
