Jordan Brand officially unveils the Air Jordan 31. The shoe is not flashy in terms of the overall silhouette, but techwise, it looks beastly. Taking cues from the Air Jordan 1 "Banned" colorway, the shoe features a combination of red and black colored upper made up of Flyweave but transitions to synthetic leather as it goes to the back part of the shoe. Aesthetically, this will be the first time that the Jumpman and the Swoosh logos go together in the side panels representing the brand's evolution. You can also see the Flywire lacing system to help contain your foot inside the shoe. For cushioning, MJ emphasized the low-to-the-ground feel. With this, the main source of cushion would be Zoom Air. The good thing here is that the Zoom Air will be full-length and now combined with FlightSpeed, which is basically unlocked Zoom Air. This would give you more responsiveness and explosiveness on your first step. A multi-directional traction pattern which is similar to a chain link fence and I hope this would bite the floor well even when there are some moderate dust or debris present in the count. It looks like Russell Westbrook will be primarily wearing this shoe throughout the season and I think this is a perfect shoe for him. Globally, the shoe will drop on September 3 so stay tuned here at Analykix for sightings in stores.
