Apparently these are dropping in the 25th.
I mean it is still possible to make fashionable performance models like the FOG 1s but performance materials used on uppers have gotten a lot better for on court performance since early Jordan releases which used exclusively leather/suede/nubuck/durabuck. The problem is, for casual wear with jeans, the newer materials like fuse, battleknit, etc. don’t look anywhere as good on a structured basketball shoe as leather does.That ain't the Kobe joint?
I miss the good old days of leather and rocking Jay's casually. I get that it's about performance but they were a combination of both. Everyone doesn't hoop, we copped because them joints looked good and Mike was our idol
