Air Jordan never fails to come up with the trendiest design in sneaker fashion. But they even did a better job when they collaborated with one of the famous sneaker companies, SoleFly. In celebration of the Florida Marlin’s 1997 victory in the World Series, SoleFly and Air Jordan created the SoleFly x Air Jordan 23 Florida Marlins model.

A couple of weeks ago, SoleFly released a teaser for the said model which is considered to be the first in the franchise’s history.
