The Jordan Eclipse – a sneaker without equal
The Jordan Eclipse has exploded onto the market. It’s time for sneakers to bring together your shoe cupboard and your style.
Inspired by a superstar
In 1985 the sports label Nike produced a basketball shoe for his “his airness” himself, the superstar Michael Jordan, a shoe which outshone every other basketball sneaker to date. While the American professional league NBA didn’t originally allow the shoe because of its colours, which went against the rules, this was the start of the famous Jordan range. Nike’s brand rose to become one of the most successful sneaker ranges of all time. Today we can hardly imagine a basketball game without the classic Jordan sneaker: the fine grip, the cool colourways and the perfect fit make the model essential for every player.
The label branched out further, however, aiming to establish a sneaker beyond the performance model – a running sneaker. Who doubted that the company would achieve its goal and launch an impressive runner with the Jordan Eclipse? That’s right: nobody! For shortly after the launch, the Jordan Eclipse in black enjoyed incredible popularity and has since become more and more visible on the streets of the most happening cities. Without the right sports kit you’ll never get anywhere, so Michael Jordan taught us in Disney’s “Space Jam”. Perhaps if the character had worn the new Jordan Eclipse sneakers, the Roadrunner would never have been caught.
Better is just good enough
The celebrated lifestyle and running sneaker, Jordan Eclipse, is truly lightweight and super well-ventilated. This makes the breathable shoe an outstanding choice for the summer, hot days, or holidays. This is down to the light outer textile, which channels the warm air within the shoe directly outside. The winter variant is equipped with wool and fleece and keeps the foot so comfortably warm.
By its nature the Jordan Eclipse is very similar to the Nike Roshe Run; it’s more or less the basketball answer to the label’s mega-sneaker. Both shoes have a very slim silhouette and feature a clean, simple, cushioned and breathable mesh insert in the outer material. The big difference to Nike Roshe Run is in the sole of the Jordan Eclipse, which has the famous Jordan signature line. This has been slimmed down from the Jordan Future and the Jordan Horizon, however. Furthermore, the flexible IU-midsole takes on the function of the outer sole. This special midsole guarantees you comfortable absorption and further reduces the weight. In addition, the long lifespan of the running sneakers is down to the construction of the sole, as the shoe is extremely hard-wearing thanks to this technology. Alongside the sole, the enclosed air sole element in the heel of the sneaker is responsible for lightweight absorption. Combined with the soft OrthoLite insole and the comfortable foam lining, the runner will give you a super comfortable and light wearing experience in pure comfort, while being absolutely gentle on the joints. Pure comfort also applies to the neoprene tongue, which guarantees easy access and the correct fit. Freedom of motion and multidirectional movement are assured by both the low-top design and the fishbone grip pattern on the sole.
This shoe has everything the perfect runner must have. Why should you be satisfied with less? Your joints will thank you for buying the Jordan Eclipse at Foot Locker!
Purity is our focus
The Jordan Eclipse for men presents itself with a simple, pure look – Jordan Eclipse in black and white are in particular demand, because they fit this style. The Jordan Eclipse for women is also available in pastel tones alongside the clean styles. The designers of the Jordan range keep up with the times. And they have one more surprise ready for us: they’ve added the Nike LeBron series colourway to the available colour range. What more could a sports lover want?
