Jordan Eclipse Chukka History

The Jordan Eclipse is a smooth and straightforward addition to the JB line which is marketed to be used in different activities one can think of. Its interior comfort hails from the Nike Huarache which took its idea of a cleatie construction for a glove-like fit.

The Eclipse garnered a lot of attention in 2015 with its numerous color variations. Jordan Brand revamped it in 2016 into a mid-top. The Jordan Eclipse Chukka extends its ankle protection and gives it a tonal flair from the Jordan branding to the laces. Set to overshadow casual sneakers of its time, the Jordan Eclipse Chukka primes itself in monotone glory.

The December 2016 release of the Jordan Eclipse Chukka ‘Triple Black’ sparked more subsequent iterations which was almost simultaneously launched. Two in the said unveiling were the Light Bone and the Sequoia colorways which, religiously in that matter, maintain the woven-upper appeal.

Speaking of kids’ sizing, another colorway of the Jordan Eclipse Chukka was released, and this time it plays around with the shade of pink. Intended for young lady sneakerheads, the Black/Pink edition sports a black mesh and woven upper complemented by fading pink accent on the shoe’s tooling.
