Widely ridiculed by newer sneaker fans, the Jordan Pro Strong boasts a formidable legacy amongst hoopers that turned to the model in the late 1990s.
Ahead of summer, the non-Air Jordan offering has appeared in a black, white, and red color scheme unquestionably borrowed from Michael Jordan’s signature series. The design already shares cues with the Air Jordan 13, a high-top sneaker that launched a year earlier in 1997. Jordan’s 13th mainline model helped the Chicago Bulls legend win his second three-peat, and appeared in a similar color scheme during the NBA Playoffs. The Jordan Pro Strong boasts its own identity, but there’s no denying that it borrows from its highly-successful predecessor. Hits of white keep the sneaker from donning a uniform finish across the upper and sole unit, while nodding to Jordan Brand’s iconic legacy.
