The Roshe Run was one of Nike’s most successful sneaker models of its time when it made its debut. Its mesh construction made it a very breathable sneaker. It had cushioned collars, which made it really comfortable around the ankles, and its lightweight soles provided further soft cushioning. Moreover, its outsole pattern was inspired by waffles and ensured traction over multiple surfaces. Rather unexpectedly, July’s Jordan releases 2017 included a brand new model from Jordan Brand that seemed like it was somewhat inspired by the Nike Roshe One. This sneaker model was the Jordan Flight Luxe and its latest colorway has just arrived at retailers.
Primarily, the Jordan Flight Luxe has mesh uppers with a ribbed texture throughout, similar to the Roshe Run. Its heels are wrapped up and its tongues are made up of premium leather. The sockliner pattern that it features has apparently been inspired by the Air Jordan 9. Its lacing system is held in place by Dynamic Flywire. The word “JORDAN” is embossed on both heels and the branding visible on the inner tongue tags draws inspiration from the brand of the Air Jordan 4 “Flight.” In recent times, the Jordan Flight Luxe has already arrived in two colorways, one of which hit the shelves earlier in August.
Reportedly, the Jordan Flight Luxe’s futuristic design may have even drawn inspiration from the Air Jordan 15. The latest colorway of this lifestyle model is perhaps the most vibrant, compared to the two previous ones. It is somewhat of a tonal colorway since it is almost entirely dressed up in Gym Red from the uppers down to its soles. However, this colorway also features contrasting Black-colored detailing throughout, which gives it a Bred-like appearance. The Jordan Flight Luxe also happens to be equipped with foam midsoles, which provide the wearer additional cushioning, making this sneaker even more comfortable.
As mentioned, this latest nearly all-Red colorway of the Jordan Flight Luxe has already joined August’s Jordan releases 2017. It just made its retail debut on August 20th and should still be available for $120.
