Striking a balance between the old and new, the Jordan Future bridges the gap between Jordan retros and new contemporary lifestyle sneakers providing one of 2014’s hottest silhouettes.
The Jordan Future is a very minimal shoe with a real sleek design having people go crazy for it since it is so versatile. The midsole is the iconic Jordan 11 midsole with the predominantly translucent outsole with the two segments of traditional herringbone. The cushioning set up is full length Air just like the Jordan 11 providing excellent comfort.
Moving onto the upper, the upper is composed of a tight knit woven material, which is relatively thick compared to something like the Roshe Run. It definitely feels like a premium quality sock to be honest as their is no structure. The tongue and lacing system isn’t your traditional linear tongue but is off-sided leaning towards the medial side providing a new design yet very clean in my opinion. The laces are string laces with gold tips, which provide a nice aesthetic touch to match the small jumpman logo stitched onto the tongue.
The inner liner of the sneaker is composed of a Nylon material, which is extremely comfortable and allows for the shoe to be worn with or without socks making it an excellent option for the summer. There is no heel counter so be sure to try these on since you might feel some heel slippage. If you go true to size, they should be no problem since the overall fit is excellent and the midfoot is very snug.
Overall, the Jordan Future is a very simple shoe but very stylish and versatile. The silhouette of the Jordan Future can be dressed up and down with shorts, jeans and joggers and with or without socks and definitely a great look for summer. These are available now at your select Jordan brand retailers and Footlocker for $150 but they are selling out fast in almost every colourway. Jordan brand has released new images of a new 3M Jordan Future pack they intend to release in the near future. I highly recommend the Jordan Future for a clean, comfortable off court look. For those of you who are thinking of hooping in these, definitely not a good option as there is no structure whatsoever. It honestly feels like a premium quality Roshe with a jumpman logo.
