From the Jordan Point Lane named after Michael Jordan’s mansion to Air Jordan silhouettes that see prints inspired by MJ’s Barcelona sweater, the GOAT allows for his personal experiences to make their way onto new footwear designs. The Jordan Series 0.1 line as a whole is centered around paying tribute to those who have shaped MJ into the legend he is today. After revealing two styles that honor his older brother and his younger self, Jordan Brand has just unveiled a new style dedicated to no other than his mom, Deloris.
The lifestyle silhouette is composed of a two-toned suede upper that is separated by a strip of black nylon. Rust orange suede dominates the toe while Sail suede is applied to the remainder of the style. On the lateral side, “DEAR DELORIS,” is stitched in black, with the phrase also appearing on the tongue label but in a bright crimson. More text can be found on the right shoe’s insole, which has “SWING FOR THE FENCES” printed—a reminder to always aim higher and an allusion to Michael Jordan’s brief baseball career. A stark white rubber midsole rounds out the look while adding durability to the style.
Take a closer look at the Series 0.1 below, which will arrive at Nike.com in the coming months at a price of $80.
