Jordan Series .03 'Dear '90's'LT VLTGE YLW II/BLACK-KEY LIME-HEMP DJ0420-700
AN HOMAGE TO HISTORY, A SHOE FOR EVERYONE.
The Jordan Series .03 continues the story of how Mike became the greatest of all time, with an ode to the '90s twist. Wearable in any setting, the shoe has some stretch to accommodate wider feet. It's constructed like classic sneakers, with clean, high sidewalls that are wrapped for durability. The shoe symbolizes the influence and inspiration for generations of kids who look up to Mike—players and fans alike looking to find their wings.
The outsole has circular traction inspired by the Air Jordan 1. The message molded into the rubber tells the story of Mike's backyard sports battles with older brother Larry. ""45/2"" nods to the number they both wore until they ended up on the same team. That's how MJ became #23, by splitting 45 in half and saying if he could be half as great as Larry, he'd be alright.
""SWING FOR THE FENCE"" on the sockliner quotes a letter from Larry. The quote speaks to MJ's attitude in life, and specifically references the brothers' backyard battles.
This is the 1st vulcanized shoe by Jordan Brand. Like classic skate shoes, it has clean, high sidewalls that are double-wrapped around the toe for durability.
Triangular cutouts on the sides are filled with stretchy material that flexes to accommodate wider feet.
Textured suede leather and canvas create a nice play of textures.
