Jordan Brand is following the lead of Nike‘s Space Hippie line with a new lifestyle silhouette dubbed the Crater. Made of sustainable materials and offering a conceptual, Frankenstein-like look full of straps, flaps and stitched detailing, the Crater will serve as part of the Jumpman’s summertime lifestyle push alongside other models like the Delta SP and Air Cadence.

Featuring a “University Red” color scheme, this inaugural colorway of the Crater is dressed mostly in black with small red branded details and a grey midsole. The upper is built from a hybrid canvas-like textile that’s constructed from recycled materials. Although it looks stark at a distance, close inspection reveals subtle colored flecks across its expanses. The asymmetrical lacing system veers towards the lateral forefoot in a manner reminiscent of Nike Sportswear‘s classic Air Footscape, and is secured by multiple nylon straps.

A final nylon strap reaches around the heel, above which sits a sideways red #23 graphic. More pops of red appear via a tongue Jumpman and a special ball-and-wings logo on one of the eyestay anchors. Insoles are done up in yellow for a hidden detail. Down below, signature Crater Foam midsoles and NikeGrind outsoles spruce up their respective grey and black builds with multicolored flecks of rubber. Apart from the dash of style this provides, it’s also ecologically conscious: Crater Foam is made partly of recycled ZoomX foam — technology that’s used on silhouettes like Nike Running‘s Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% — and Nike Grind is made up of recycled rubber.

The Jordan Crater “University Red” is set to release at Nike SNKRS Korea on July 10, and is priced at ₩179,000 KRW (approximately $150 USD). A US release will likely follow in the coming weeks.
