We’ve already seen it in its lifestyle collection, but Jordan Brand will tap into the running/training aspect of the market for the first time with its Jordan Flight Runner. Though kept as separate business entities for the most part till recently, both Jordan Brand and Nike provided essential design inputs from lessons learned through its basketball and running programs. With its Dynamic Fit and Nike Zoom cushioning, the Flight Runner provides a new level of comfort and support. Yet, the shoe’s weight is kept at a minimal thanks to heat-pressure fuse construction method and mesh upper.
Designed with all types of Jordan Brand athletes in mind, the Jordan Flight Runner will make its debut with four NCAA teams – University of North Carolina, Georgetown University, Marquette University, and University of California at Berkeley – this month as we continue onward with March Madness. Afterwards, the Jordan Flight Runner will be available starting on May 1st through select Jordan Brand retailers and Jordan.com online store with a suggested price of $110 USD.
