Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura has taken an unconventional path to the NBA, and the warrior spirit he displayed during his journey has provided inspiration for Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 35 “Warrior.” First seen during the Air Jordan 35’s official unveiling in September, the “Warrior” combines a day one Air Jordan color scheme with ultra-advanced tech and plenty of Hachimura-specific details.

Black and red uppers take shape cues from the Air Jordan 5 around the collar, then combine a new Flightwire system with large red and black suede strips on the midfoot. The left tongue offers up one of Hachimura’s logos, while the right tongue retains a standard Jumpman graphic. Traditional Nike Air tags hang off each heel.

Down below, midsoles evolve the Air Jordan 34‘s revolutionary Eclipse Plate technology, using what’s dubbed an “Eclipse Plate 2.0” for maximum spring, stability and arch support. This circular piece features a black-to-red gradient fade while working in tandem with heel and forefoot Zoom Air bags to increase the wearer’s explosiveness. Gray outsoles with an Air Jordan 4-esque dotted print round off the look.

The Air Jordan 35 “Warrior” is set to release on Nike SNKRS come October 21, and is priced at $180 USD.
