Bottom line

The Jordan Trunner LX, one of the first Jordan off-court training shoes during the 2000s, made a comeback in 2017 through an OG release. Its woven mesh upper gives a unique look to the silhouette combined with the dual hook-and-loop straps on the sides and midfoot.

Although its support is unquestionable thanks to the shank plate and adjustable straps), this shoe’s construction makes it difficult to put on with a narrow-fitting toe box. Despite this, the Trunner LX OG is highly recommended for its superb quality, old-school look, and comfort.

Good to know

The Jordan Trunner LX OG is a low-top training shoe with a lace-less feature. Instead, it utilizes straps along the midfoot and on both sides of the shoe for a lockdown fit. Pull tabs are visible on the heel and tongue for easy on and off.

This shoe is available in men’s sizing from 7 to 14 in D Medium or Standard width with half sizes up to 11.5. Because of its unusual closure type, some wearers find it challenging to put on. It also fits narrow in the toe box, so opting for a half to full size bigger than usual would give wearers, especially those with wide feet, a much comfortable fit.

Built for off-court training, the Jordan Trunner LX boasts an unusual, not-your-typical Jordan silhouette in a low-top construction with varying materials on the upper including woven nylon and mesh with hints of suede along the heel counter and touch of leather detailing on the toe vamp. This time, however, in its luxe and OG (Original) form.

The slip-on profile with multiple straps that give a lockdown and secure fit makes it a one-of-a-kind shoe that old-school Jordan fanatics appreciate more than the new and modern wave of sneakerheads perhaps because this OG release somehow brings a sense of nostalgia.

This OG release of the iconic Jordan Trunner LX silhouette is a mnemonic of how Jordan started with its off-court training shoes. Staying true to its roots, this shoe features the original colorway of black, red, and white that resembles the Bulls theme. It also features a laceless upper in a combination of mesh and woven nylon with a hint of suede and leather accents.

However, despite its one-of-a-kind overall aesthetics, the dual hook-and-loop straps on the sides and midfoot is one characteristic that still stands out the most. It does not only give the silhouette its identity, but it also allows a lockdown fit that the wearers need.

The Jordan Trunner LX is one of Jordan’s first training shoes. It was the brand’s new breed of silhouette and a breath of fresh air for Jordan followers who patronize its high-performance basketball kicks. It was best known as the model that facilitated the brand’s branching out of hoop shoes and exploring other sports categories.

It first made an introduction in the early 2000’s soon after the Air Jordan 15’s unveiling. Several features of the famous AJ15 were borrowed such as the woven material along the mid panels and the mesh material along the collar and on the toe box. It also exhibits dual straps for a lockdown fit, an IU midsole, and a rubber outsole.

However, in 2001, Nike Inc., Jordan’s mother company, along with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 425,000 pairs of Trunner models. There were reports on the thin metal strips on the outside part of the heel protruding and possibly injuring (cuts, in specific) the person wearing it.

The iconic off-court Jordan model made a surprise comeback in 2017 as one of the shoes in the Jordan’s Black History Month Collection along with the Air Jordan 1 Retro High for men and the Air Jordan 1 Retro High for girls. On May 3, 2017, the Jordan Trunner LX made its long-awaited return in its original Chicago-inspired red, white, and black colorway through an OG release called the Jordan Trunner LX OG “Bulls” at $120 retail price. Approximately two months after, another colorway of had been released called the “Team Royal” comprising a royal blue and black upper with white leather detailing. It retails at $140.

  • The Jordan Trunner LX OG features an Injected Phylon midsole for responsive cushioning and an encapsulated Air-Sole unit in the heel for impact protection.
  • There are pull tabs on the heel and tongue.
  • The insole is made of Ortholite for added comfort.
  • The Jordan Trunner LX in red, black, and white colorway has also been known as American Professional Boxer Roy Jones Jr.’s training shoes back in the day.
