The Jordan Take Flight is a performance based shoe that is the first to feature a full length visible 360 Air Max unit. Air Max is one of the best sources for cushion, but can also be a bit unstable if you play a guard position. Jordan Brand did an excellent job making the Air Max unit work for any position by adding a TPU ‘rib cage’ on the medial and lateral side of the shoe. This change is great for stability but will also restrict the Air unit from absorbing a lot of impact. Still, it is nice to see someone being innovative rather than mashing up previous models together.
Each colorway will vary in materials used. Everything from synthetic leather, patent leather, suede and mesh will be seen on future releases. This pair has a familiar and comforting colorway usually thought of when thinking of Air Jordan’s.
How do you feel about Jordan Brand using a 360 Air unit, Is this something you would like to see more often?
