Jordan Brand‘s Delta and Delta SP have been generating a lot of buzz in the lifestyle sphere as of late, and now the former has surfaced in a striking “Black/Flax” style. Adding a touch of elegance to a highly technical silhouette, the “Black/Flax” tones down its color to accentuate its unique build.

Built from mesh and a synthetic ripstop, the black low-cut uppers offer a modern base layer. This is starkly contrasted with the overlays, which serve up a shaggy and supple flax suede. Although this would look more at home on an Air Jordan retro, it makes an undeniable statement here. On the medial side, it wraps from heel to toebox and crescendos by reaching up to an eyestay, on the lateral side it’s present exclusively on the forefoot. Both sides are left unadorned, but the heel’s suede is perforated and equipped with an alternate take on Jordan’s ball-and-wings logo, a mark that’s been around since 1985 when Peter Moore created it for the Air Jordan 1.

Other details like an exposed foam tongue with an asymmetrical tag, large heel tab and pops of orange stitching on toebox and heel alike add a little extra flair. Down below, noodled React foam midsoles and rubber outsoles are dressed entirely in grey, with one large black Jumpman towards the heel finalizing the look.

From Edison Chen‘s unveiling of the model to Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s teasing of a fragment design collaboration and the recent revealing of a stripped-back, Swoosh-equipped pair it’s been a busy last few weeks for the Delta, and the “Black/Flax” is available now at Japanese stockists like mita — with a price of ¥14,000 JPY (approximately $129 USD).

From a charitable standpoint, Michael Jordan and the Jordan Brand recently pledged $100,000,000 USD to support the black community.
