When the Air Jordan 4 hit retail stores, sneaker fans from around the world acclaimed its unique silhouette. Now to pay homage to the AJ 4 is the Jordan Fly ’89, the latest off-court performance shoe to enter the market from the Jordan Brand.
Here are the details that we know about the Jordan Fly ’89:
This model is heavily inspired by the Air Jordan 4, especially given the iconic side panel wings and the sneaker’s heel panel. The shoe’s upper is dressed in neoprene mesh which is characteristic of newer models of the Jordan line. The top also sports some synthetic overlays. Looking at the outsole, one cannot help thinking that lunar foam will be used, though as of yet there hasn’t been mention of any cushioning in the shoe’s design.
The Jordan Fly ’89’s slip-on upper and outsole unit give this retro a more contemporary look. The much-beloved lockdown wings, as well as the paint splatter midsole and the iconic back tab of the shoe, however, are reminiscent of the Air Jordan 4. On the heel and midsole of the shoe is the trademark Jumpman logo. The sneaker’s outsole is an attractive white speckled with black dots, with the word LUNARLON printed towards the back of the outsole.
As of now, there has been no official report of the shoe’s launch date from Nike. Once Nike releases official confirmation on the specific release dates of the shoe, expect to find the information here. Official images of the Jordan Fly 89, however, are already available for viewing online. Thus, you may want to check these images to know if this is what you are looking for. In any case, you will surely find other sneakers from the brand that could tickle your fancy.
Each pair of Jordan Fly 89 is expected to retail for $140 USD. This is not that heavy on the pocket so you may want to grab this one the moment it releases on the market.
In a year that the Jordan Brand is releasing brand new as well as retro models, the Jordan Fly 89 is a perfect way to mix both new and old. This sneaker is certain to turn heads once it hits the streets.
