The newest performance model from Jordan Brand, the Super.Fly 2017, encompasses everything dynamic players need to thrive on the court. This model features Nike React, to give players slashing to the basket and making quick cuts maximum comfort and responsiveness. This model was first unveiled during the 2017 NBA Playoffs via Blake Griffin, who has sported the model throughout its lineage, and like many other recent footwear designs, this model takes design cues from past models like the Air Jordan IV and Air Jordan XI.
Because no two players move exactly that same on the court, the design team at Jordan Brand have employed pressure maps from the Nike Sport Research Lab to locate critical pressure points to develop the Super.Fly 2017’s traction pattern. No matter what move you’re trying to make on the court, the Jordan Super.Fly will give you all you need to leave your defender and get to the basket. With comfort and response at the forefront in sneakers, this model features a form-fiting, one-piece upper giving wearers a natural fit to help them channel their explosiveness.
