Despite many Air Jordans holding the role of lifestyle products in their own right rather then their original designation as a performance basketball shoe, Jordan Brand has ensured the brand is seen as more diverse than the Air Jordan models of the past which has paved its way to success. With items like the Spiz’ike being held in relatively popular flavor, the PHLY joins the ranks with its Air Jordan inspirations. Two colorways seen here have immediate reference to the AJIII. These are set to enjoy a small ten store release before a full roll out is expected for the summer. Available Saturday, March 15th at Philadelphia’s Ubiq with a price of $85 USD.
