Distinct style of Jordan Heritage

The basketball-inspired aura of the Jordan Heritage has been masked with a more lifestyle flair from the parallel curves on the high-top collar to the glossy shine of the synthetic Nubuck upper.

What fans can anticipate with this silhouette is that it showcases an almost tonal colorway that expands to the outsole except for the midsole.

The tongue, which is the tallest aspect of the shoe, partly covers the bottom part of the shin.

The sole is unmistakeably pulled out from the archives of the Air Jordan I, with the segregated teeth outsole and all.

The perforations on the toe box give a vintage look along with the peripheral overlays that are similar to the Nike Dunks. As with AJ I's, this sneaker is best sported with skinny jeans, shorts, or joggers to accentuate its overall image.

Lastly, the Gym Red colorway of the Heritage would be perfect to go along with your red boxing gloves.

Features of Jordan Heritage

To quickly identify the Jordan Heritage in a sea of Jordan sneakers, one must first try to look at the Jumpman logo at the lateral side of the heel.

Another logo is positioned at the leather tongue which doubles as a pull tab. Speaking of pull tabs, the heel also contains one with an etched 23 symbol to honor Jordan's iconic number.

From afar, the symmetrical folds on its high-top collar are a dead giveaway.

History of Jordan Heritage

Sneakerhead or non-sneakerhead, the Jordan franchise most certainly took a tour in everyone's mind when talking about rad kicks.

With just a quick swoosh on the basket coming from the generally acknowledged "greatest-of-all-time" player that had rocked the court since the dawn of time. We know where this is going and that athlete is Michael Jordan.

The Jordan Heritage was one of the buds that spurted out from the coveted basketball footwear franchise which focused on a more lifestyle approach.

Released in 2017, it took hints from the AJ I especially the sole which contains an encapsulated Air-Sole unit on the heel (Nike's prized tech).

Its upper displays a more modern vibe combining textile and Nubuck for its material and overlays. As far as the years could stretch, there would always be room for a Jordan sneaker that would honor its memorable heritage.
