It’s hard not to get excited when fans’ favourite Air Jordan colorways show up on other shoe styles. But is it still as popular if it’s on a shoe that isn’t part of the Air Jordan lineage? The Jordan Pro Strong, which came out in 1998, is not part of that timeline.
However, Jordan purists and fans still hold it in high regard because it was one of the first shoes made by Jordan Brand after Michael Jordan started his own company.
Vin Baker, one of the team’s most promising athletes, was given the Pro Strong. He often wore the OG white/black/green colorway.
As the Pro Strong becomes more popular in stores, we’ve seen some familiar colorways come to the high-top model, which some people think of as a cousin of the Air Jordan 13.
Here it is again, with a simple combination of white and greyish silver for that “Pure Money” look that has never failed on any Jumpman-branded sneaker release.
The upper of this almost all-white sneaker is made of flat and tumbled leather, which gives it a surprising contrast in terms of texture.
You can soon buy these at Jordan stores for $140. If you’re more interested in Retro Jordans, check out our list of Jordans coming out in 2021.
