The Air Jordan Take Flight is yet another new sneaker from Jordan brand that in an already littered landscape of silhouettes. But something about this one stands out among the rest.
Maybe its the modified Air Max outsole with the support pillars on the outsole that bear Jordan branding. Or maybe its the simplicity of the design on this one with long sweeping lines and a built up layered upper. Or maybe its just a good looking shoe that comes in two distinct colorways including White/Varsity Royal-Stealth-Light Graphite and Black/Varsity Purple-Anthracite-White. The shoes are slated to drop later this year to all Jordan Brand retailers. Via SneakerObsession
Air Jordan(s), also known simply as Jordans, are a brand of shoes and athletic apparel produced by Nike originally designed for and endorsed by former professional NBA basketball player Michael Jordan. The Air Jordan line is now sold by the Jordan Brand subsidiary of Nike. Since its first release in 1985, there have been new designs of the shoe released each year, even after Michael Jordan retired from the NBA.
Collectors classify the Air Jordan line by release year and model: Originals (OG), Retros (shoes that have been recreated for sale to the general public), Retro-pluses (Retro +, Air Jordans that are similar to the Original product, with more up-to-date changes), Player Exclusive (PE, Air Jordans that are exclusive to certain athletes in the realm of sports) and Samples. The Jordan Brand also produces a line of Team shoes, separate from the signature line of Air.
