As sneakerheads might recall, the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” was Jordan Brand’s annual release of the model for the Holiday Season back in 2016. Michael Jordan not only rocked the sneaker in Space Jam, the film that gave it its nickname, he even wore it during the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the 1995 NBA playoffs, where the Chicago Bulls faced the Orlando Magic. The sneaker returned after eight years for the 20 Anniversary of the film. The Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” recently got restocked in Poland by KicksStore on July 21st, 2017. Following this restock, Jordan Brand seems to have designed a Jordan Super.Fly 2017 “Space Jam.”
In order to further celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam, Jordan Brand also dropped a brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 31 that mimicked the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam.” Replicating the colorway it was inspired by, the Air Jordan 31 “Space Jam” had Anthracite- and Black-colored Flyweave uppers with glossy patent leather accents over its heels and tongues. It was also equipped with icy, translucent outsoles and featured Concord Blue-colored “Jumpman” branding as well. Thus, its color blocking was the same as the Air Jordan 11. The Air Jordan 31 “Space Jam” had ended up making its retail debut on December 3rd, 2016.
A look at this latest Super.Fly 2017 leaves little doubt that it apparently also draws inspiration from the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam.” As can be seen, the same sleek Black hue covers the uppers, most of which are made up of nubuck, while the heels are made up of patent leather. This sneaker is also equipped with Nike’s innovative REACT foam cushioning and it features tonal Black-colored “Jumpman” branding as well. In case sneakerheads are wondering where the Concord-colored accents are, they can be spotted underneath its icy, translucent outsoles, while its midsoles are plain White.
In case sneakerheads want to add another Space Jam-themed sneaker to their collection, now is their chance. This Jordan Super.Fly 2017 “Space Jam” is reported scheduled to make its retail debut at a price of $140 on August 3rd, 2017.
