Jordan's storied history is set to continue with the next silhouette in the Jordan Signature Numbered series. Of all of Jordan's first 14 models, none had such a premium feel and aesthetic as the Jordan II. Utilizing snakeskin and high quality Italian leather, the shoe also ditched the Swoosh branding.
Today, the Jumpman unveiled the Jordan 32, drawing inspiration from the Jordan 2 and infusing it with the high performance technology necessary for the basketball court. Utilizing high-tenacity yarns in the flyknit upper, the flyknit on the toebox is also crafted as such to resemble the Jordan II. Other features include a hidden lace system, the infamous wings logo on the tongue (also reminiscent of the Jordan II) and either a Leather Snakeskin or Suede panel.On the rear of the shoe is a grooved heel counter that also draws inspiration from the Jordan II, but also from a Ferrari Supercar. Lastly, is a midsole that combines forefront Zoom Air, a Flight Plate and Zoom air in the heel; a combination we first saw in the Jordan 32. All of that will sit on a Herringbone Traction Panel, to provide a unique level of on-court support.
The Jordan 32 will retail first in the All-Red "Rossa Corsa" Colorway (named as such because of the Jordan IIs Italian roots, further cemented by the word "Bellisimo", or "beautiful" in Italian, on the tongue tag) on September 23rd. On October 18th, now known as "MJ Day" (called as such because it is the anniversary of MJ's "banned" letter from the NBA), we will see the release of the "Bred" colorway (complete with a Banned logo on the tongue), and a lowtop "Bred" version as well.
