Air Jordan XXXI Lows for the College Fan in Some of Us

The Air Jordan XXXI has been confusing. One of the best silhouettes in the line, combining woven, leather, the Wings logo and the Swoosh, it is both a throwback to the earliest days of the Air Jordan series and a serious look at the present and future for performance. Reviews were mixed, with traction being the main issue found, but the idea was there: combine old and new for a killer shoe. Now we get images of the next version, the Air Jordan XXXI Low, coming soon in colors for the Jordan Division I basketball schools: Michigan, Georgetown, North Carolina, and California.

Made up in each school’s colors, the shoes also feature team names across the heel of each shoe (much like the Nike Kyrie 2 Duke last year) and translucent soles showing the team name on the bottom Zoom unit (there’s that translucent sole again). Release date is March 10 for all four schools, with retail being set at $160 (rumors were $180, but $160 makes more sense).

SKU numbers are shown below, thanks to @j23app, with images taken from member NikeRider. As always, let us know below if you are in for a pair, if the XXXI worked for you, and if not these, what school do you ride with?

  1. I’d give in to some lows probably at the right price. I just really wish that I heard better about the traction but you never know until you try them for yourself sometimes.

    Clean CW.

  2. I would buy em for sure with a solid outsole…can’t deal with bad traction, especially with the way my court is right now
