Right in time for the playoffs. Jumpman 23 unveils the Air Jordan Fly Wade shoe. This is the start of a collection of Dwayne Wade shoes with the Jordan brand. These kicks weigh in at 13 ounces and was designed by shoe guru architect Mark Smith. Nifty fact right here is that this is the lightest basketball shoe ever created by the Jordan brand. When thinking about it, this totally makes sense because historically all J’s have been super heavy. I personally think they were modeled after the VII’s or at least resemble them a bit. Hit the jump for the technology features and a ton of pictures!
