Synthetic overlays protect the high-wear areas such as the toe box and eyestay against abrasion.

The trainer utilizes a traditional lace-up closure which allows users to customize fit by loosening or tightening the laces. For additional lateral support, the midfoot strap can also be adjusted for a more locked-down fit.

The thin tongue prevents the laces from digging into the instep while the user is working out.

Jordan Relentless ankle collar

As for the collar, it is lightly padded to keep the ankle area comfortable. It also holds the back of the foot in place to prevent slippage while on the move.
