TRIBUTE TO A GLOBAL ICON
Leather upper for strength and durability
Dynamic-fit inner bootie for a secure fit
Air-Sole unit at forefoot and heel for excellent, flexible cushioning

Paying tribute to MJ as a global superstar, inspirational words in various languages are stamped on the sole. Some of Michael's best traits-including intense, dedicated, graceful and athletic-are imprinted in German, French, Spanish, Swahili, Russian and Italian. Other words such as 'freedom,' 'hope' and 'force' represent the qualities that Jordan has added to the world of sports. A graphic of a rising sun adds a timeless Japanese detail, which is molded into the sole alongside the classic Jumpman logo.
