Whether your love for basketball and basketball shoes was born out of admiration for the fierce competitor, the famous Gatorade commercial back in the ‘90s or simply the versatility and innovations that the Air Jordan collections have brought to your sneaker closet for over 30 years, we all want to “Be Like Mike.”
Just dropped at Sun & Sand Sports is the Air Jordan 32, the thirty-second basketball shoe in Air Jordan history, and it really captures the heritage of the shoe design as well as the man that made it one of the most iconic shoes in modern history.
We take you through some of the Air Jordan 32 features which are sure to get you jumping to great heights on court or even turning some sneaker heads on the street.
The colourways and slogans are boldly executed in this basketball shoe, echoing the longstanding relationship between Michael Jordan and Gatorade. In bright orange, “Be Like Mike” is displayed on the inner tongue, and Wings logo on reverse. Coupled with the Jumpman logo on each side, there’s definite emphasis on the then and now.
Textures ooze out of every pore, too, with a ribbed collar, lizard skin accents and folded leather trim.
Low tops inevitably give more freedom to move at the ankle, but the Air Jordan 32 doesn’t let this compromise support. Flyknit technology across the forefoot is made with high tenacity yarn, meaning that as well as being breathable and light it provides structured yet flexible support. The lacing system also adds to the lock-down sensation of your feet for a true, custom fit. For extra comfort, both sockliner and heel are quilted.
Maximise your vertical jumps with the in-built FlightSpeed technology and Nike Zoom Air Cushioning. The FlightSpeed tech has high-strung fibres that flex and spring back to unleash energy as you prepare for flight and work together with Nike Zoom Air, which acts as a durable and lightweight cushioning platform to really give you a powerful jump.
Flip the shoe over and you get another impressive aesthetic of the shoe in a herringbone traction outsole and Gatorade slogan replacing “I” in Mike’s name.
