There are no words to comprehend what may be going through the minds of Jose Fernandez’s family and the Marlins organization. The sudden passing of the ace pitcher has left the city of Miami in shock, but the outpour of support has proven to be valuable solace to those affected the most.
Two weeks ago, SoleFly dropped a teaser for an upcoming collaboration with Jordan Brand inspired by the Florida Marlins organization and its 1997 World Series victory – the first of the franchise’s history. It unpredictably arrives at a time of mourning and sad remembrance, so iIf anything, this collaboration could not have arrived at a better time. It takes a lot to bring a city known for bright lights and unabashed celebrating to its knees, and although Jose’s passing was a big blow to South Beach, the Marlins showed last night that the city would bounce back with ease.
The SoleFly x Air Jordan 23 will release on October 22nd, 2016, limited to 1,500 pairs. Full images of the shoes and pricing info will be revealed soon.
