Jordan Series .05 'Dear 2003'LIGHT CURRY/HOT CURRY-WHITE-BLACK DM1681-781
Step into the legend of MJ with the Jordan Series .05. Wearable in any setting, these instant classics serve nothing but clean lines and good looks. Canvas and suede pair up for texture and durability, and some built-in stretch accomodates wider feet. Designed with Michael's origin story in mind, they offer up inspiration to players and fans alike looking to find their wings.
Turn your sneakers over for some MJ lore. A message about Mike and his big brother Larry is molded into the rubber outsole. ""45/2"" nods to the number they both wore until they eventually ended up on the same sports team. That's how MJ became #23—by splitting 45 in half and saying if he could even be half as great as Larry, he'd be all right.
""SWING FOR THE FENCE"" on the sockliner quotes from a letter Larry once wrote to Michael. It speaks to MJ's attitude in life, and specifically references the brothers' famed backyard battles.
This is the 1st vulcanized shoe collection by Jordan Brand. Like classic skate shoes, they have clean, high sidewalls that are double-wrapped around the toe for durability.
A Little Stretch
Triangular cutouts on the sides are inset with stretchy material that flexes to accommodate wider feet.
