    $149.99

    Do you own any sneakers with an outsole like that? I doubt it. An ocean blue colorway means these’ll look great with some faded jeans, helping your feet to pop. The white woven upper is a great contrast to that. I’m down with these.

    3. grey and volt

    $149.99

    Ever since adidas laced some NCAA Tournament teams with all-volt uniforms, the sneaker culture has been obsessed with it. Aesthetically, it’s the loudest color of all and yet somehow works on sneakers. Here, because of the impact of that dull grey upper, this colorway has a versatility you wouldn’t normally assume considering it has a volt outsole.

    2. light grey

    $149.99

    The Jordan Future is a sneaker that thrives off of empty templates. In a sense, the more low-key the design and colorways are, the better the sneaker looks. In this grey colorway, it’s sporting a makeover that’ll up the swag on whatever you wear. Grey was one of 2014’s biggest colors. Don’t skip out on this one.

    An all-black and white shoe as the top colorway? Yep, trust us. Remember how the Jordan XI always looked incredible when JB stuck with simple designs and colors? This shoe, since it sports much of the technology that made the XI so special, is the same way. You’ll be able to wear this shoe in any setting and still feel good.

Over the past two or three years, shoes like the adidas Flux and the Nike Roshe Run have pushed a new angle of sneaker culture, one that isn’t concerned with shiny displays or on-field performance. It’s about the lifestyle now more than ever. You don’t cop a pair of Roshes to work out in. You don’t normally use the adidas SL Loop Runner to actually go run marathons. You use them to stunt, to show your swag, to revel in it and show out.

The Jordan Future is a direct response to that movement.

Michael Jordan, Tinker Hatfield, and the Jordan Brand still make some of the greatest performance sneakers around, but a new generation is exceedingly looking at their shoes as lifestyle products. So it only made sense that they’d take bits and pieces of perhaps their greatest “lifestyle” Air Jordan ever in the XI and use them to mold a completely new — and true — lifestyle product.

First unveiled last February, the Jordan Future took a carbon fiber plate and full-length air outsole and combined it with a new one-piece woven upper, a characteristic that would later be used in a performance setting on the Air Jordan XX9. This gave the sneaker a new look while also keeping many characteristics from the XI. The XI, as most everyone knows, is probably the most versatile Jordan sneaker ever. The Jordan Future is carrying on that tradition to a new generation and forcing growing legends like the Flux and Roshe Run to take notice.

Yesterday at Champs Sports, yet another new colorway of the Future dropped for the holidays. Featuring an all-navy upper, they already look like standouts that’ll go with just about any pants you want to wear. But they might not even be the best ones available right now at Champs. Let us explain. These are The 5 Best Jordan Future Colorways at Champs Sports.
