Jordan Brand – September 2011 Releases @ Extra Butter
Jordan Brand’s Trunner series is the Jumpman’s longest running cross-trainer and the closest thing to a true running shoe they’ve ever offered, and it’s enjoyed a nice comeback over the past few years. The OG Trunners dropped around the turn of the century and we got Q4 and Alpha update varieties in 2009 and ’10, respectively. The Alpha Trunner was almost like a Presto-like hybrid with its lacing cage, but the Jordan Trunner LX 11 gets back to the original form with straps on the ankle and instep provide extra stability for the elastic sock upper, and incorporates some new tech in the form of visible Max Air cushioning in the heel. The Cool Grey edition is joined by a GS drop in black with Spark and Blue Crystal accents that echoes the Air Jordan 1 Phat GS also now available at JB retailers like Extra Butter.
You guys at Sneaker News have GOT to stop with the misinformation on the Trunners. The Alpha Trunner was a Zoom updated version of the OG Jordan Trunner, which released in 1999, and PRE-DATED THE PRESTO!! As a matter of fact, the Alpha Trunner was almost an exact replica of the OG. The Trunner LX 11 is an Air Max updated version of the Trunner LX, which released over a year later, in 2000 as a Foot Action exclusive. While the LX 11 is a fairly close update of the original LX, your description of these is TOTALLY backwards.
Never had a pair of trunners but they look comfortable and supper light.. On another note...someone give that man an ice pack for his swollen ass ankles.
