Ever since the legendary release of the Air Jordan 1, the brand has tried their hand at ways to improve upon the design. One of these attempts resulted in the Zoom Air being put in the midsole instead of the standard Air. There have been a few colorways that use this tech but the Jordan Brand is hard at work to offer more choices for fans.
The colorway that has just debuted is this "Court Purple" style. Due to the purple overlays on the upper part of the shoe it reminds many of the Jordan 5 "Alternate Grape". There is an added swoosh in teal that adds to the wine fruit aesthetic. The black base of this sneaker with the shade on both the midsole and side panels makes for a very good foundation for the colorway to pop. The gradient outsole begins out as teal in the front and rapidly changes to purple in the back.
These are expected to come out in the late summer or early fall. Do you like the new "Court Purple"?
