Jordan Brand Reveals Flight Runner, 1st Running Shoe [PHOTOS]
Jordan Brand is associated with basketball kicks and gear thanks to the legendary player whose name it carries. However, for the first time, the house that Michael Jordan built is offering up an official running sneaker, the Jordan Flight Runner.
Yes, the “Trunner” doesn’t count. But no worries, the shoe takes advantage of JBs familial and physical proximity to Nike and it’s renowned running technologies.
Says Jordan Brand:
The Jordan Flight Runner combines ultra-supportive Dynamic Fit technology and iconic Nike Zoom cushioning. Providing the ultimate ride for training and conditioning, the Jordan Flight Runner helps prepare top-flight athletes of any sport.
This versatile running shoe features an advanced heat-and-pressure fusion process — creating a strong, exceptionally lightweight bond. Fused mesh in the forefoot provides ventilation, while the welded shroud creates a sleek, streamlined look. With an emphasis on heel support and responsive cushioning, the Jordan Flight Runner helps keep the foot in place upon landing and provides comfortable stability for bigger, stronger athletes.
You’ll be able to pick up your own Jordan Flight Runner at select retail stores and Jordan.com starting May 1. They will cost you $110.
