Jordan Series .03 'Dear Coach'PECAN/BLACK-ARCHAEO BROWN-WHITE DN3732-200
Arguably one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time, Phil Jackson led Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls to 6 championship titles. The vulcanized Jordan Series .03 "Dear Coach" pays tribute to the Zen Master with a calming tie-dye upper. Wearable in any setting, it's also got some stretch to accommodate wider feet.
Letters of Influence
The tongue label and embroidery on the lateral side symbolize letters MJ wrote to important people in his life. When he looked back on who he was and who he became, those words taught him determination that he carried with him to greatness.
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, 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.
A Little Stretch
Triangular cutouts on the sides are filled with stretchy material that flexes to accommodate wider feet.
