And now it’s confirmed: Jordan Brand really made their own Galaxy Sneaker and it’s fast becoming the newest lifestyle!
Color:French Blue/Wolf Grey-White
Obviously Jordan Brand would remain strong in the market even if they decided to release retrofitted versions of previous Air Jordans, forever. But then again, there are those who do not appreciate the beauty of the Jordan retros and would rather have a sneaker that is somewhat of a limited edition; hence the choices like the Air Jordan Eclipse and Air Jordan Future. But given these limited options, a new non-retro release from Jordan Brand would really make a buzz for its welcoming.
Sneaker News provided a sneak peak for the newest Jordan Galaxy and unlike the Nike Air Foamposite One “Galaxy”, this one from Jordan Brand is not covered with stars.
Rumors and first pictures provided Jordan heads and fans a first glimpse of the shoes which is done in French Blue and white colorways. The Kinetics shop in Japan seems to be the first shop spotted to have the pairs in stock though the resemblance of the dubbed Jordan Galaxy is not even close with the starry themed Nike Galaxy.
Nevertheless, the Jordan Galaxy is fast becoming a lifestyle sneaker for most. Why, aside from it being a non-retro silhouette, it also sports a pretty unique design in some ways that cannot be said of other lifestyle Jordan sneakers.
So for a first look, the Jordan Galaxy looks distinctive given its mid-cut design giving it a toe-down asymmetrical look. The fact that the shoes lack graphics is another feature that makes it distinguished yet provides it with an overall clean look. Of course, such uniqueness will not be complete without the use of the right shoe materials which in this case is the texted leather on the one side with a neoprene mesh upper on the other. The lacing system of the Jordan Galaxy is also very different from the one we’re used to from Jordan Brand. The white outsole provides the finishing touch for the Jordan Galaxy with an outsole design that is pretty much similar on another lifestyle model from Jordan Brand, the Jordan Instigator.
But of course, no sneaker from Jordan Brand would ever be complete without their famous logos. The Jordan Galaxy sports the Jumpman logo done in white in obvious contrast to the French Blue of the shoes’ upper. The placement of the Jumpman is also a tad different since you will find it on the lower side of the ankles and on a little tag placed near the sock line.
No official Jordan release date has been given yet for Jordan Galaxy but the lifestyle sneakers will sure make its debut on 2016.
