Jordan Brand officially unveiled the Super.Fly 2 at the Jordan Take Flight event in Beijing on Tuesday. Wear-tested by Blake Griffin in early 2013, the Super.Fly 2 is inspired by his high-flying style. The shoe features Jordan Brand’s Flight Plate technology with Dynamic Fit and Hyperfuse to provide off-the-dribble explosiveness.
“The Super.Fly2 is by far the most responsive and most innovative shoe I have ever played in,” said Blake Griffin. “The way it fits coupled with the responsiveness of Flight Plate really helps me perform at the highest level possible every time I am on the court.”
Following the Air Jordan XX8 and Trunner Dominate Pro, the Super.Fly 2 is the third Jordan shoe to incorporate the benefits of Flight Plate. Utilizing a Pebax moderator plate to maximize the responsiveness of the Nike Zoom units in the forefoot, Flight Plate technology in the Super.Fly 2 is designed to redirect and redistribute the energy your foot exerts on the ground to give you the explosive lift-off needed to propel your game in every direction.
Inspired by the Air Jordan XX8, Dynamic Fit uses internal straps the wrap up from the midsole and integrates with the laces for lightweight support that moves with the foot to reinforce side-to-side cuts and chances in direction. The outsole is designed with innovative herringbone traction.
“We looked at every position from big men to guards when developing the fit and traction design of the Super.Fly 2,” said Jordan Brand’s Justin Taylor, designer of the Super.Fly 2. “No matter what position you play, you can be confident that this shoe will maximize your potential, helping you get to where you need to be on the court.”
Hyperfuse construction combines breathable mesh and durable construction to provide lightweight durability, ventilation and support.
Blake Griffin’s new Jordan shoes are available now in men’s and boys’ colorways.
