Taking the best points from the Jordan 2010 and the Jordan 2011, the Jordan Fly Wade was officially unveiled yesterday in Miami. Designed by Mark Smith, Jordan Creative Director, the shoe lands just in time for Dwayne Wade’s playoff push.
Here are three things you should know about the Fly Wade -
- The Fly Wade is the first signature shoe from Jordan Brand for Dwayne Wade.
- The Fly Wade is the lightest shoe ever offered by Jordan Brand.
- The Fly Wade is set to hit Nike ID on May 25, 2011.
Additionally, both Smith and Wade mention comfort as a key point. Smith said of the shoe, “At this level, comfort is performance.” Wade agrees, noting that come playoff time, it is super important that the shoe just fits right. Though an initial signature offering, notes to Wade’s off-court personality are kept to a minimum, his grace and pace on the court inspiration enough for the “Fly” to join the ranks of Jordan models.
