Jordan Brand Buyer’s Pick – Jordan True Flight
Inspired by the play of the game’s high-flying premier athletes, the Jordan True Flight shoe combines soft cushioning and signature Jordan style for a comfortable, stylish off-court appearance. The True Flight has a Retro look and is inspired by the iconic Jordan Retro 7 sneaker. It comes in seven men’s colors, eight boys’ colors and three women’s and girls’ colors, so the whole family can rock Jordan True Flights. True Flight sneakers also hook perfectly with classic Levi’s 511 Slim Fit jeans.
Jordan Brand Best Newcomer – Jordan J23
The Jordan J23 provides an athletic look that is made to elevate your off-court style. The casual shoe features a training-inspired strap, adding a sporty street appeal. The J23 mixes elements of casual and training shoes to create a lifestyle shoe with a uniquely stylish aesthetic. The textile and leather upper provides a clean, premium look and feel, while the lacing system and strap provide lightweight, comfortable lockdown. The J23’s athletic street-style combines flawlessly with Kennedy Denim Classic Joggers to complete the off-court look.
Basketball Buyer’s Pick – UA Curry 3
The Curry 3, which drops October 27, has big shoes to fill as it follows up the highly successful Curry 2.5. Fortunately, the Curry 3 features updated technology to enhance the experience for the game’s most dynamic players. Threadborne technology uses intelligently-woven high-tension threads to deliver the ideal mix of directional support and breathability in the upper, while Meta Wing Plates act as stabilizers to assist the foot during the quick cuts that make Stephen Curry so tough to guard. The shoe’s traction, flexibility, breathability, and support make it as dynamic as the player it was made for.
