The Air Jordan 2011’s sneaker technology included the first-ever interchangeable midsole system. Jordan Brand use the phrase “Choose Your Flight,” to promote this signature sneaker worn by then Jordan Brand athlete Dwyane Wade. The “Quick” blue midsole unit was equipped with Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot ideal for guards. While the “Explosive” red midsole unit included a 3/4 length encapsulated Air more suited for power players. Jordan Brand launched three watches in collaboration with Casio G-Shock: red for the Explosive unit, blue for the Quick unit and Black for the launch Anthracite colorway.
This week, I purchased one of the three Jordan Brand G-Shock watches. This set was released in limited quantities during All-Star Weekend 2011 at Westfield Culver City Mall’s Footaction. The retail price was $100 and each color was inspired by the Air Jordan 2011. “The red midsole in the Air Jordan 2011 assists you in becoming explosive and this red Jordan G-Shock is no different.” Jordan Brand included card.
