Jordan continues to explore with the Jordan Defy SP
Whenever Jordan Brand brings out a new shoe (like the Why Not Zer0.2, Air Jordan 33 and the Super.Fly), it’s all about innovation. It’s all about pushing the envelope for something better. This past year, Jordan Brand took inspiration from Flight Utility, space suits and the functionality behind utilitarian effects. The Air Jordan 33 featured the FastFit system, where a tug tightens the upper and provides lockdown.
Over the course of the season, the utility story continued with the Proto-React, Proto-Max 720, Zero Gravity and the Apex-React. This June, Jordan Brand adds another lifestyle silhouette to the mix with the Defy SP.
Upon first glance, the shoe looks a lot like the 33, with the mesh mixed in with various materials like suede and translucent TPE on the shoe’s upper. One thing that stood out was the buckle system that works well with the overall look. In terms of cushioning, Zoom Air is embedded on to the shoe’s midsole, while a midfoot saddle (similar to the Jordan Zero Gravity) helps in the shoe’s overall stability. The first colorway comes in black with red hits and a soft pink heel, while a raw suede eyestay adds character to the progressive sneaker design.
The Jordan Defy SP is now available at Titan and retails for Php 6, 295.
