Who should NOT buy it

The slimmed-down profile of the Jordan Eclipse adds support and keeps the shape intact. That said, its interior wide-footed sneaker fans consider rather tight.

That is why users with broad feet are advised to check our wide sneakers collection for better options. You may also look through the pages of Nike Air Max 90 or Nike Air Max 270, as these sneakers have roomy toe boxes.

Cozy pair for all-day wear

The comfort of this sneaker comes from the IU midsole, which delivers full-length cushioning, and a shock-absorbing Zoom Air unit at the heel. It is lined with a significant amount of padding and has an OrthoLite™ footbed to boost coziness with every stride.

Roshe's long-lost sibling

The Jordan Eclipse sneaker is produced in various colorways, from multi-toned to classic white-on-whites. Most often compared to the Roshe Run, the Jordan Eclipse stretches farther from the misconception of just a "simple" silhouette.

At first glance, the shoe projects a Roshe look, but dwelling on its intricate details, one can see a slightly taller heel and Jordan branding in the right places.

Remarkable details

The notable elements of the Jordan Eclipse include the midsole tooling and the first use of the Jumpman branding found at the heel, and the neoprene tongue from the Jordan VI and VII. The coveted technology of Zoom Air at the heel continues the legacy of previous Air Jordans.

With the Jordan brand's consecutive hits on annual sneaker-collected releases, its wingspan of ubiquitous designs hooked the attention of shoe enthusiasts of all ages. Its rich line of Michael-inspired footwear gradually instilled aspects of Jordan's life into sneakers, on which the public can get a grasp.

By simply purchasing a pair from the franchise, one would be superficially blessed by your Airness' ankle-breaking maneuvers, which by the way, is a brilliant marketing tool.

In 2014, the Jordan brand released the Jordan Future: a casual-designed sneaker that resembles the silhouette of the Jordan XI. It was one of Jordan's attempts to tap into the lifestyle sneaker market, which showcases style in a lighter vessel compared with classic Jordans.

Subsequent releases of models followed, garnering the street-inspired concept of the Future.

The Jordan Eclipse was released almost a year after the Jordan Future and features Air Jordan branding at the heel and the midsole tooling of the AJ III. It also imitates the neoprene tongue of the AJ VI and VII. Comfort wouldn't stop there as the sneaker is inspired by the creative construction of the Nike Huarache.
