Nike’s FlyEase initiative, with began with a pair of basketball shoes and a spirited young man named Matthew Walzer, is coming to Jordan Brand for the first time – and it’s the perfect representation of this season’s “Fearless Ones” initiative. While keeping the original spirit of the Air Jordan 1 intact, Jordan designers transformed the beloved silhouette to house an easy-entry construction that infuses elements of adaptive fit. This new system, which allows for one-handed heel entry, is comprised of a zipper + strap system and a hook/loop top entry arrangement. The shoes are tightened with a mid-foot “lace” overlay held down by adhesive fabrics on the lateral side.
The Air Jordan 1 Flyease debuts in an OG-style mix of black, red, and white – something comparable to a blend of the “Banned” and “Black Toe” legends. You can expect this model to hit retail on November 1st.
