    2. Jordan 29 / Jordan M11 ( Brother of Jordan 29)
    3. Jordan 32 (solid outsole)

    Nice! Interesting to see the comparison to the Lillard 2, I’ve heard the cushioning feels similar between those two shoes. I’ve never played in a shoe without Bounce cushioning before. I am going to try to get the new Rare Metal 2 when it comes out to see if that’s SC Foam is an improvement over the Jetlon Plus.

    Probably unnecessary to resurrect this thread, but curious if anyone knows if they're still planning to release any main-brand performance shoes?

    I enjoyed the Raptor Lo, J Crossover II and II Low, and the Rare Metal was so close to a perfect shoe for me...

    really curious if they're coming out with something new as I thought Raysse was maybe working on the Rare Metal 2?

    I would agree, think David and team called it quits and are focusing on BBB unfortunately. Shame because I was waiting on the Rare Metal 2 as well but eventually moved onto the Harden Vol 2 and haven’t regretted that decision(picked up 2 pairs).

    This situation reminds me of people wanted to hang onto Windows Phones (me being one of them) and there was complete silence from Microsoft until they literally had to tell people they were done with the products

    Nope, can confirm - there is a rare metal 2 in the works for production and another basketball model. Not sure on retail or release date, but a “source” has told me.
