Drawing its inspiration from a concentrated string of Air Jordan legacy models for the most part, the Jordan Son Of Mars mixes up elements from versions III through VI, throwing in the lasered up midfoot strap from the XX on top of it all. The result is a bit more focused than the typical blender approach for hybrid models, although we’ve got to admit it’s a bit strange that neither of the two colorways previewed so far pick up a particularly typical Jordan Brand colorway. The purple version shown here comes in closest to the beloved ‘Grape’ look from the Air Jordan V, with the sole setup of that same shoe doing a good amount of the heavy lifting in terms of color. Check out the Jordan Son Of Mars in the white,black, and purple colorway after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for release info. via Kinstor

these are dope- but can we get a hybrid that don't look like it's mutating- straight up X-MEN up in this bad boy. Keep it simple stupid.
they actually look good on foot...i do agree that these might not be in everyone's priority list of shoes to cop this year...
first of get rid of the element print smooth out the 6 top part and get rid of mesh material and you might have a decent shoe ... scratch that this shoe is just fugly come up with some mor number combinations to mash up
i dunno what to say about these....they are like an average girl....u might fuck her and might even like her somewhat but u aint showin her off at da mall cuz u know u can do better.
GARBAGE! Maybe if they would ditch the strap it might look a lil better. JB has been on this mashup BS for a few years now. STOP IT
i am not anti hybrids but it's like they got too greedy on this one and tried to incorporate way too many elements into one...just way too much going on.
NIGGAS IS HATIN..!!!!!!! FINALLY THEY MAKE A COOL LOOKIN HYBRID AND YALL STRAIT DISSIN IT.......okay of course its not a retro and the cw creativity sucks.... but bro these are Heat.....quit bitchin sneaker heads.... hype got yall blind....
not going to lie i kind of like these, but sure as hell won't be copping far too many better options than these this year
Idk bout these not feeling.. maybe they look better on the feet.. if the price is right maybe i'll consider doe
You know when you hear a song on the radio and you hate it, then after the 25x hearing it that day you are singing a long, I think this happening with the model, or least that's what their hoping lol
Couldn't have said it better myself.....they talked shit on the bordeaux spikes,then turned right around and copped.Why even hate to begin with?This shoe is dope,color way...dope,other color way...dope,bottom line.I know what the problem is tho...JB is dropping too much heat this year and economically some of you can't keep up.....so you hate until you're sure you can cop.What a miserable life for you guys.
Hype got you blind.... I like my 6 rings but these are garbage, wtf does that strap do anyway? the shoe is already held down tight enough, it even has the fucking lace locks from the 5's Hypebeast, you probably gonna start calling these grapes...
Yeah these really aren't too bad idk why people hate on these. I just think these can use better colorways.
I would imagine if da spi'ikes cost 175 & they are a hybrid, im guessin these will b around da same price
