Jordan Galaxy Style
The mid-top Jordan Galaxy displays unique mixed materials on the upper; half is made with full-grain premium leather while the medial side is made of mesh neoprene. This unique combination creates the asymmetrical look and boosts the premium look and feel. Its burrito-style construction with far-out ropelike lacing system adds laudable style, making this pair a worthy of onlooker's second look.
Styling the Jordan Galaxy can be an undemanding task for some. Few users typically rock their Jordan Galaxy in the streets wearing a pair of denim jeans, joggers, skinnies and rolled up jeans paired with a clean button down for a weekend get-up. Meanwhile, some strut their pair with crew neck shirt and leather jacket and tattered jeans for a masculine ensemble.
Jordan Galaxy History
It all started in 1986 when Nike leaped faith by choosing a rookie from the Chicago Bulls to become their endorser. His name is Michael Jordan, a native of North Carolina.
The first ever Jordan sneakers that kissed a basketball court was released between 1985-1986. It’s called Air Jordan 1 that displayed black and red colors, hence giving it a rebellious image since NBA won’t allow shoe color that is not white in the majority. This infamous act of Michael Jordan, still wearing the shoes even if it is banned, ushered the Air Jordan 1 as the most anticipated shoes throughout that time and up to this day.
During that time, every kid wanted to take in a couple of J’s. With that uphill demand and limited stash, the value of the Jordan also ascended. Nike released different versions of the Jordan every season, outshining the previous versions. This move made the Jordan seamlessly became part of the urban streetwear culture.
The phenomenal clamor for the Jordan shoes coming from the public brought various impacts to Sneakerheads. It paved the way for basketball shoes to be used in the streets, wearing it as casual as possible. Sneaker summits were also everywhere, which, later on, developed a community for sneaker collectors, hence opened a channel for them to connect and socialize and sometimes trade shoes.
Despite having an outdated technology, many collectors, as well as avid fans, still preferred owning the old releases or the OG version. On the other hand, others would instead hold re-releases of these pairs with a fine-tune in material and in the technology which they call the Retro version.
While it is safer for the Jordan brand just to offer the Retros or the OGs, the brand still opted to launch a variety of basketball-inspired casual shoes, like the Air Jordan Future, Jordan Eclipse, and another non-retro the Jordan Galaxy. The Galaxy displays a unique lacing system and overlapping tongue with a textured leather upper and neoprene mesh.
