Appearing the inaugural “White/Black/University Red” colorway, the shoe features a lightweight and responsive base upper concealed by a quilted leather shroud. The shroud is attached to the shoe via waterproof zippers that run from the forefoot to the ankle collars. A traditional woven lace lockdown provides the mesh base with a secure lockdown in high-performance situations.
Branding elements on the shoe come in the form of a “Flight” graphic on the inner tab, Jumpman motif at the toe bumper, Michael Jordan printed signature insoles, “23” in morse code on the toe box, tonal Jordan Brand logos along the inner shroud, “J4-34 2 89 19” on the outsole heel and upside down “Air Jordan” badges at the rear. Elevating the shoe is a molded red Pebax plastic Eclipse plate and Zoom Air cushioning assisted midsole paired with a translucent icey herringbone traction rubber outsole.
Priced at 180 USD, the Air Jordan 34 SE is set to release February 13 on Nike’s webstore and select retailers ahead of the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.
