Maybe it's generational but the Air Jordan's debuting February 11th in stores and retailing for $140 look pretty sweet. If, that is, you are of a certain vintage. And unlike recent high-top golf shoes, not 80s velcro!
Brentley Romine at Golfweek.com with the details:
“The Air Jordan I was the first sneaker that really pushed the limits on what was acceptable,” Michael Jordan said. “It’s like being a young kid, when his parents say he can’t do something but he wants to do it. I felt like I wanted to be different.”
The limited-edition Air Jordan I Retro High golf shoe is certainly that, defying the status quo much like its basketball predecessor. The shoe does have a few notable differences: extra padding to provide additional comfort and support around the ankle, Jumpman logo on the tongue, Nike Free-inspired outsole with soft spikes and a fully waterproof upper.
