Unveiling the unexpected, yet welcoming, the iconic Jordan Pro Strong is once again stealing the spotlight in the competitive sneaker world, this time with a distinct “Playoffs” makeover.
The legacy this shoe has upheld since its inception in the late 1990s is not lost on seasoned sneaker enthusiasts, yet it often finds itself undervalued amongst the younger generation of fans. As the temperature rises and the summer season approaches, the Jordan Pro Strong “Playoffs” returns with a bang in a tri-color palette of black, white, and red, reminiscent of the signature series of the legendary Michael Jordan himself.
Emerging originally as a non-Air Jordan model, this sneaker’s design evidently holds traces of its iconic sibling, the Air Jordan 13. Released a year prior in 1997, the Air Jordan 13 is ingrained in the history books, playing a crucial role in helping Michael Jordan secure his second three-peat with the Chicago Bulls. Moreover, it graced the basketball court in a similar tri-color scheme during the high-stakes NBA Playoffs, tying it inherently to the Jordan Pro Strong “Playoffs”.
The Jordan Pro Strong, although bearing similarities, stands strong in its own distinctive aesthetic. It imbibes from its forerunner without losing its unique essence. Elements of white strewn across the shoe break the monotony of a uniform finish, encapsulating the sneaker’s upper and sole unit while paying homage to the legacy of the Jordan Brand.
The Jordan Pro Strong “Playoffs” (Style Code: DC8418-062) will be available at an accessible price point of $140 USD.
