We are a little less than two weeks away from the all star week end, deep into the Tax refund season, so you know brands are saving their best kicks for now. Russell Westbrook was wearing his own PE version of the Air Jordan XXXI 31 All Star Edition sometimes in September, and the colorway is breathtaking.
The shoes feature an iridescent leather heel panel with a matching woven upper at the forefoot. On this particular model, the area betwwen the forefoot and the toebox is covered with hexagonal shapes in honor of the Hornets. You’ll also find the hornets’ logo on the inside of the tongue ( since the city is hosting the all star festivities). JB’s own logo appears on the quarter panel (Jumpman) and the outside of the tongue (another jumpman inscribed in a hexagon). According to Nike
the iridescent upper was purposely used on the shoes to represent the impact players have on and off the court
The shoes are completed by a color shifting outsole; the Jordan 31 are without a doubt one of the top performance shoes I’ve ever come across. They are equipped with a full-length zoom Air unit for responsive and weightless cushioning; and they also feature a rubber outsole with threads in a woven pattern for multi directional for quick cuts on the court.
