Last NBA season, Blake Griffin ooh and awed crowds performing spectacular dunks and alley-oops in the Jordan Super.Fly. Jordan Brand has something new in store for Griffin for the 2013-2014 season, the second iteration to the Super.Fly, the Jordan Super.Fly 2.
Thanks to great performance updates to the model, we can expect Blake Griffin to have yet another crowd-pleasing season. So what exactly is different this time around with the second model?
Like the Air Jordan XX8, the Jordan Super.Fly 2 features the revolutionary Flight Plate. However, the XX8 featured two separate Flight Plates, one segmented to the heel, and one to the forefoot. The Super.Fly 2 features one Flight Plate across the entire length of the shoe, which gives a more unison ride for an all around smoother feel.
The upper of the Super.Fly 2 is equipped with a Dynamic Fit system, which wraps the foot from the footbed to the lacing system. The result is a lockdown fit that really snugs the foot, so you don’t have to worry about the shoe slipping off of your foot, even if you are performing explosive dunks like Blake Griffin.
The cushioning system used on the Super.Fly 2 is also an improvement from its predecessor. It features a protruding Zoom Air in the forefoot for more responsiveness, which also has a horizontal split that flexes with your foot. Zoom cushioning is also used in the heel, as well as a midsole, providing for all encompassing responsiveness.
