A First Look at the Jordan 2X3


A first look at an upcoming Team Jordan model dubbed the Jordan 2X3.

Jordan Brand has been killing with affordable basketball shoes and they show no signs of slowing down.

The Jordan 2X3 borrows tooling from the Jumpman Team Hustle: full-length herringbone, lightweight Phylon midsole and a forefoot Zoom Air unit.

Changes between the Jordan 2X3 and Jumpman Hustle starts at the upper as there are textiles and synthetic overlays in place, almost like an Air Jordan 33 take down model. Aesthetics lean towards the Air Jordan 33 as well — although I see a bit of the Air Jordan 22 and Jordan Ol’School too.

I think these look great both visually and from a performance perspective. They should excel where the Jumpman Hustle lacked — support from the upper.

Release date is currently unknown, team models don’t usually have release dates, so we’ll keep an eye out for when they become available. Retail is expected to be $100-110.

  1. I’m all in favour of the late 90’s team Jordan style…take the flagship model and break it down just enough to be affordable but still give us the playability. I don’t know if it still happens, but the kids that gotta save up for their one shoe, or the parents won’t spend for the flagship, this still gives em a chance at a great shoe with a jumpman on it.

  2. These look like definite sleepers, I think they are going to perform great. I’m really anticipating the release of this shoe

  3. Aersthetically it combines characteristics from recent (AJ33-heel counter, Hustle-midsole, Why Not 2-collar) and previous Jordan models (AJ3-eyelets). It looks like a budget version of the 33s.

  4. A Google search of this shoe shows a website with a .gr domain (Greece) that has it for sale supposedly and there are a few other images of the shoe from other angles. It looks like it could be a performer.
