Yes, Jordan Brand now has a Jordan Sportswear division. Its primary focus is lifestyle with a Jordan heritage twist.
The Jordan Jumpman Z is not a performance model. The shoe uses tooling from our beloved Air Jordan 14, but it doesn’t offer the same tech.
This Jordan Sportswear model utilizes a foam midsole, no Zoom Air, and a premium suede build. A zipper enclosure is in place for a unique look. You can wear the shoes zipped up for a snug fit or unzipped for a more laid back approach. Internally there are no laces.
The Black/Red colorway has just become available on Nike.com with a retail price of $150.
What are your thoughts on the Jordan Jumpman Z now that we know what it is and what it was intended for? Are you feeling the lifestyle approach with premium touches?
