We were all paying attention to the team shoes Jordan Brand athletes were wearing during the USA Minicamp, and it wasn’t too long ago that our own Nightwin2303 previewed the new Jordan Jumpman Hustle. Now, we’ve got a detailed look at a Jumpman Hustle build that outdoor hoopers may love.
What differs between the model pictured here and the one in Nightwing’s video is that this overseas version features not only solid rubber traction but also an aggressive herringbone XDR setup underfoot. The shoe is lightweight while visually bulky and it’s definitely one of the more interesting team releases this year.
Wide-footers curious about fitting the Jumpman Hustle PF shouldn’t be concerned one bit because this version is probably built on a wider last (like most overseas versions). The lockdown is feasible upon the first try-on and it’s easy to get your foot in with the heel and tongue pull tab.
While the synthetic zip-up shroud provides little stretch, it odes provides you a nice snug fit to lock you down without inhibiting certain movements. The shoe also features a very soft foam midsole along with a large top-loaded Zoom Air unit in the forefoot that should provide ample impact protection.
Be sure to stay tuned for the performance review on these bad boys. In the meantime, if you wanted to grab a pair you can head over to ID4Shoes for the White/Black (shown above) or the Black/Graphic model. Those wanting to get them quick locally can head over Hibbett Sports and get the White/Black (without the solid XDR rubber traction), or the Black/Black colorway.
Let us know what you think about the Jordan Jumpman Hustle in the comments. Are you interested in the shoe? Are you glad Jordan Brand is offering budget-friendly team models like back in the late-90s/early-00s?
