The Jordan Brand’s Phase 23 Hoops brings tennis inspiration to a basketball performance-ready model that also translates well as a casual off-court footwear choice. On the performance side of things, the Phase 23 Hoops includes full-length Phylon midsole cushioning with an Air unit. Helping provide a lockdown fit is a midfoot cross-strap directly pulled from tennis trainers of the past.
Style wise, this pair features a white leather upper with black working patent leather on the tongue and textile near the heel. A heavy influx of varsity purple is seen on the inner liner, mesh on the tongue and ankle, Jumpman branding and the Jordan VIII-style multicolor support panels. The midsole is done in white and black, white a purple rubber outsole completes the look below.
