BrandBlack might be new but they are not slowing down.
Their J. Crossover model was a really nice on-court performer with one glaring drawback… ventilation was nonexistent. They look to change all that in a bold way with these new knitted uppers. Yes, we’ve seen this upper done on the Kobe 9 Elite but these will do what they didn’t, feature a knitted upper without plastic backing it.
According to CounterKicks, these will release after or around the 2015 All-Star Game and I’m pretty excited to see the finished product. I do wish the midsole and outsole was redesigned but since the upper was heavily tweaked, I can look past it and hope that the 3rd model is a completely fresh new take.
