Earlier this year, sneakerheads got a look at the three different Wahlberg x Jordan Formula 23 colorways that were designed by Mark Whalberg. Just last month, Jordan Brand dropped another brand new Jordan Formula 23 colorway that was exclusively for children and it retailed at a price of $100 at select stores like Renarts. The model made its debut among the earliest Jordan releases 2017 of this year and ever since, it has not yet hit the shelves in that many colorways. Readers probably think that the sneaker featured here is a brand new Jordan Formula 23 coloray, but it is actually a variation dubbed “Toggle.”
The Jordan Formula 23 Toggle does indeed look quite similar to the original Formula 23 model, but there is a particular feature that sets it apart completely. The Jordan Formula 23 was introduced earlier this year, as a lightweight, street-ready and stylish sneaker. Its uppers were made up of Nike Dry Mesh liner with a woven taffeta shell on top and its side panels were perforated. Its gore lace accents and webbing were inspired by the Air Jordan 10, while its laces were connected to synthetic leather mudguards. The Jordan Formula 23 made its retail debut in two colorways on January 30th, 2017.
From afar, the Jordan Formula 23 Toggle does indeed resemble the original Formula 23, but it has actually been reworked. Its neoprene inner sleeves are shorter, which makes it somewhat of a slip-on sneaker. It is apparently also equipped with Phylon midsoles and solid rubber outsoles, which are the same as the original model. The unique feature of the Formula 23 Toggle is that it is equipped with a special lacing system that is like a bungee cord. It has to be pulled back at the heel in order to tighten each shoe and there is a lace lock back there that locks it in place.
It has literally been just months since Jordan Brand first introduced the Jordan Formula 23 and now a new variation of the model is on its way. However, so far it is not certain when exactly the Jordan Formula 23 Toggle will arrive at select Jordan Brand retailers, so keep checking back.
