In the late 90′s, Jordan Brand created a line of footwear that was to be built alongside the Air Jordan signature series. Those models, which we now refer to as ‘Team Jordans’, have carved their own path to what Jordan Brand is producing today – performance-based models utilizing some of the latest technologies engineered by Nike. The Jordan Flight-The-Power, which will debut this January, is clearly a tech-inspired shoe, using thin mesh windows that reveal a funky pattern of cables that mimic the performance enhancement of Flywire while providing some visual appeal. The multi-layered construction gives the Flight-The-Power that skeletal, bare-boned theme, and the midsole, with Max-Air cushioning on the heel, appears to borrow a few strokes from the Zoom Hyperdunk 2011. Three colorways are set for a release at a $115 price-tag, so check out all of them below and let us know what you think.

They should've made these the melo 8's. These are definitely way better looking than any team Jordan I've seen in a while. I'm impressed
That obsidian/lemon/current blue colorway is pretty fresh. They need to use that for some retros too.
