Taking inspiration from Sylvester’s love for BMX riding, you’ll find the silhouette to display heavy distressing to exemplify the challenge of landing the perfect tailwhip. Sail, white and varsity red are seen throughout the sneaker while its medial Swoosh incorporates reflective material; an ode to bike riding at night. Additional details include “Jordan Biking Co., Est. 2017” on its inner collar plus pre-made scuff marks, a mini Swoosh on the lateral toe box and a deconstructed logo and double-debossed WINGS on each lateral side.
