Work on your game or fall behind.
That’s what it’s come to in 2015. Cats everywhere are working every day to get better. For some of us, the holiday break is a time to play CoD and sleep in late. For others? We’re up early to get our five to the courts at the YMCA. Yet even as the lines have become very simple on the court–you’re either working on your game and excelling…or falling behind–everything else has blurred.
In sneaker culture, you’re seeing many of the best basketball performance silhouettes morph into lifestyle pieces. A perfect example of that is the LeBron line with Nike. A shoe designed for a monster of a player was still stylish enough this year to put together an impressive collaboration with Pigalle. In this regard, many of the best retros to release this year will ultimately never be used for basketball. They’ll be style pieces, centerpieces of your favorite fits for the next year or two. With that being the case, you need something else to keep your game locked in while you’re on the court. That’s where the Jordan True Flight comes in.
The True Flight has been around for years (for good reason). Taking many of its cues from the classic Air Jordan VII, the True Flight is basically what would happen if you outfitted a retro Jordan with all of today’s best performance tech. A Huarache-like Dynamic Fit inner sleeve. Full-length Air sole unit. Solid rubber sole. All of it comes together at a reasonable price tag for a sneaker that’ll last you a long time.
Combine the sneaker with the whole fit in classic Chicago Bulls colors–a red hoodie, classic jogger sweatpants, and a matching branded T-shirt.
If you’re not working on your game during your downtime this holiday break, you’re definitely falling behind. Grab this shoe and watch the haters fall back.
