We love our Air Jordans – no matter which model. Here, my boys don on their Air Jordan Son of Mars low – on our way to the gym. (We will be playing basketball, table tennis, badminton, beach volleyball with friends.)
These pairs are comfortable, they’re very well-padded around the toe box and ankle which gives a very supportive feel. Since they are high-cut even though named ‘low’, you are surely protected when a fall happens while playing. However, we find our other basketball shoes to be more comfortable when playing so we tend to wear these Air Jordans only when walking about.
The Jordan Son of Mars is a hybrid design from the Jordan Brand and Spike Lee- referencing the “Mars Blackmon” character frequently featured in Air Jordan ad spots. This Jordan hybrid has soft, pliable upper sole that doesn’t feel painful when moving about. The clean design, albeit a combination of different Air Jordan models and signature cement print, goes well with most outfits, be it shorts, jogging pants, or jeans. The outsoles for these different pairs are all white (grape, green glow, red uppers).
For the little boy who loves red, it’s fitting to get him this pair in his favorite color. I guess we both love red.
The grape-black-ice white (release date: April 27, 2013) and the black/green glow-anthracite-cement grey (release date: August 31, 2013) colorways are not usual for us, as we usually go with black and white, gray, red, black, blue or a combination of any of these colors.
Air Jordans and more – spot which ones are Son of Mars 🙂
