Who should NOT buy it

The Jordan Son of Mars feels a bit heavy on the feet. Because of this, users who prefer donning lightweight and breathable sneakers are advised to check other Jordan iterations, such as the Jordan Flight Origin 4.

The Jordan 1 Hi FlyEase seems to have answers to all of the Jordan Son of Mars' shortcomings: a lightweight build, breathability, crease-resistant leather, and a quick set-up lacing configuration.

The Jordan VI's influence is through the netting running below the laces.

The sole construction, including the icy splatter detailing, as well as the textured Jumpman tongue and the ever-recognizable see-through lace locks is a nod to the Air Jordan V.
