Once Jordan Brand released its last colorway of the Jordan XX3 back in '08, in my heart that is the year that Jordan brand died. The silhouette that functioned both as a performance basketball shoe and as a sneaker you could rock casually became the end of a era, after that JB turned their strong vision towards retros & high performance on court division, with uprising prices and sneakers (retros) that didn't appeal to me, therefore I cut my ties with any JB purchases.
Now let's bring it forward to current date. Jordan Eclipse, yes it does resemble many other shoes (roshe run, ZXFLUX etc...) but in all reality a shoe of this kind only makes sense to manufacture if your a big brand Co. Personally as I get older I find the need for comfortable shoes to wear, the need to show off heat on feet died many years ago. I need my feet to be very taken care of and sneakers such as the ones mentioned above are just those to do the trick. So here I go with my first JB purchase in 7 years. Materials, quality on the finished product is on top of the game. Comfort and breathe-ability outstanding. It really does feel like spring and after the long cold winter we've had this is a welcome change.
