Jordan Proto-React: Not your usual Jumpman kick
The Jumpman brand team took a different route when it drafted the Proto-React. Unlike the traditional retroed Jordan sneakers, the Jordan Proto-React takes on a fresh form. Its upper is wrapped with a spacesuit-inspired cover and a foot-hugging inner bootie.
- Durable Nike React foam embedded in the sole for plush underfoot comfort
- A light and flexible shroud upper for easier movement
- Internal stretch bootie that delivers a snug feel
- Built with hook-and-loop closure and a heel strap for a tight fit
- An exaggerated outsole that offers good traction
