So, this weekend, we got a look at the rumored Jordan XXXI and emotions were incredibly mixed (which, once again, is what designers want — strong feelings).
The black/red colorway featured a Swoosh underlay on the side of the upper that was rumored to not be appearing on the release pair, as well as a Jumpman on the ankle/heel. We still see the leather or synthetic ankle collar/heel area and the woven forefoot and midfoot, but there is no word yet on the tech used (or new names for it) or cushioning.
But what’s this? Jimmy Buckets was posing for pics with Team USA, and look at that: the Air Jordan XXX1 ‘USA’ colorway on his feet. Most USA shoes look sick in the colorways of our great nation — don’t you think? You don’t? Then tell us below, because regardless of what the shoe looks like here at WearTesters, we just want it to perform. And perform great.
Yes the pics are grainy, but remember, they come from an official Jordan Brand post.
