Some mid-week NBA Feet goodness here, starting with a pair of Air Jordan IIIs – Paul George’s ‘True Blue’ and Shannon Brown’s ‘Black/Cement’. Other notables included Jordan Crawford’s Air Jordan V ‘Raging Bull’ aka ‘Greatest Non-OG Air Jordan‘, Demar DeRozan’s tonal-red Kobe VII iD, and Donte Green’s Nike Zoom Rookie LWP. The most interesting sneaker selection comes from Dwyane Wade, who once again wore the Jordan Fly Wade ‘Marquette’ PE; for someone with a signature shoe, he certainly shuffles his rotation around quite a bit!

Marcus Jordan Details His ‘Motivation’ Jordan Fly Wade Customs

January 23rd, 2012 by | 11 comments

marcus jordan details fly wade customs Marcus Jordan Details His Motivation Jordan Fly Wade Customs

On Thursday, Sneaker News showed you a sick pair of Jordan Fly Wade Customs made for Michael Jordan’s son Marcus, a star guard for the UCF Knights. The amazing artwork was done with the simplest of art tools (a Sharpie marker), but Marcus points out the intricate details and the meaning behind all the names scribed into the graphic print. He calls the custom his ‘Motivation’, as he plays the sport of basketball for his closest friends and family, and points to the deliberate placement of his own name and his father’s name on opposite heels, symbolizing a ‘head-to-head’ match-up. Marcus wore the Fly Wade customs during UCF’s win over Memphis, but the game was extra special because his father Michael was in attendance for that game, and apparently the extra motivation of the senior Jordan’s presence translated well, as Marcus finished with 20 points. Marcus details the concept behind this custom job in a video below so take a look and let us know what you think!

While brother Jeffrey has decided that basketball wasn’t in his immediate future, Marcus Jordan continues to shine for the UCF Knights – and does so brightly in these Jordan Fly Wade Customs done by Jona Cerwinske. Marcus calls them his ‘motivation kicks’, as they featured a sick white/black colorway in a Freegum-style mosaic of imagery done by one of Marcus’ fans. With the LeBron 9 making the black/white Freegums-style a sneaker staple particularly in Miami, would it be dope to see a Jordan Fly Wade 2 ‘Freegums’? Check out Marcus’ Customs after the jump and let us know what you think.

Jordan Fly Wade 2 – Miami Launch Event

December 8th, 2011 by | 12 comments

jordan fly wade 2 miami launch event 126 Jordan Fly Wade 2   Miami Launch Event

The first colorway of the Jordan Fly Wade 2 officially hit retailers today, and to help celebrate the launch of Dwyane Wade’s second signature shoe from Jordan Brand, a special media event was held at Miami’s Jose Marti Gymnasium. Dwyane and Jordan Brand creative director, Andre Doxey were on hand to introduce the shoe and discuss the various technical aspects that went into its development and design. Dwyane started off the discussion with a rundown of the things he looks for in a shoe. For D-Wade and the creation of his new signature model, the two paramount concerns are comfortability and durability, both factors that commonly come into play in shoe design, but that are addressed in some innovative new ways on the Fly Wade 2. Dwyane also noted that he sweats a lot and that it can have a negative impact on his feet and shoes, so enhanced breathability also became a point of emphasis on the shoe as well, eventually addressed on the Wade 2 with the use of a lightweight and airy Hyperfuse construction on the upper.

Picking up where the original Fly Wade model left off, the new shoe features some thoughtful upgrades to better suit Dwyane’s high-flying style of play and his ability to take off and land with maximum heel and ankle stability. The sole features edge to edge Lunarlon to ensure that the foot is well protected, all while maintaining a featherlight 12 oz weight that also improves on the blueprint from his first shoe. When it comes to the aesthetics of the Fly Wade 2, Dwyane had some firm guidelines in mind when he first sat down with the design team to discuss the direction of the new shoe. Wade noted that he looks for his shoes to be sleek and very clean and made the comparison to car designs, specifically Aston Martins. Aside from the way that notion inspired the lines and shapes of the shoe, it also appears to have effected the material choices as well. Dwyane explained that the matte finish seen on just about every colorway of the Fly Wade 2 was directly inspired by some of his favorite cars, and serves as a double threat with its subtle blend of style and tech.

After an entertaining Q&A session, the real fun kicked off as media attendees were invited to try out the shoe in not your average way. To simulate the feeling of “flight” that D-Wade enjoys regularly while soaring to the hoop, a trampoline was set up in front of one of the baskets so that participants could enjoy the aerial sensation for themselves. Even with the helpful boost, most media member dunks (or dunk attempts) were not quite on Dwyane’s level, but there was no arguing with the shoe’s comfort and super lightweight feel. To take your own shot at flying in the Jordan Fly Wade 2, check the first colorway out in stores now with several more on the way soon.
