Earlier today, Jordan Brand officially unveiled the Jordan Fly Wade in Miami with the help of Mark Smith and Dwyane Wade. Based on the idea of being “Impossibly Lightweight”, the Jordan Fly Wade is the lightest Jordan Brand sneaker ever created while still managing to keep up with beating that D. Wade puts on his sneakers. The Jordan Fly Wade features Zoom Air in the forefoot and Max Air in the heel and a lockdown fit around the ankle and heel. The Jordan Fly Wade will also be the first signature Air Jordan sneaker to ever be made available on NIKEiD.
