A fitting blend for a sneaker composed of elements from Air Jordans III-VI plus the XX strap, the Jordan Son of Mars has to this point been roughly split between classic colorways and new looks. One of these signature looks has even been through the process twice, as the earlier ‘Pop Art’ original was compared to this more obvious Air Jordan VII homage thanks to its colorful accents. But whereas the first pair was a considerable stretch to connect with the Sevens that first retroed last February after a nineteen year wait, this ‘Bordeaux’ Jordan Son of Mars really lives up to its name. That’s not to say they haven’t all been altered, though, as the Son of Mars adds a bit of mint green to its heel and outsole to connect the ‘Bordeaux’ palette with one of 2012’s trendy colors. Check out new images after the jump below and let us know if the mid-September release date is already circled on your calendar. Photos: Taobao
Jordan Son Of Mars ‘Bordeaux’
Dark Grey/University Gold-Bordeaux
It's called a complementary color. When placed next to each other, complements make each other appear brighter. So the Mint Green sets off the Bordeaux color, making it stand out more. Design 101. The more you know, kids...
