Air Jordan 19 (XIX)
The official catalog description is:
Upper: Michael Jordan’s retirement from NBA basketball has meant a turning of the page, the ending of one chapter and the beginning of another. This shoe was inspired by the most dangerous snake in the world, the Mamba. It has full-grain leather and Nubuck upper with a foam-backed collar lining. A new innovative tech-flex material in the vamp offers breathability and support in the right areas. A new speed-lacing toggle is combined with a magnetic heel strapping system. The elegant toe shape is finished off with a full-grain patent leather.
Midsole: Phylon midsole with a double stack Air Sole unit in the heel combined with a full length Zoom Air bag. Chrome TPU Jumpman in the heel. Extended ¾-length carbon fiber shank for added midfoot support.
Outsole: Modified solid rubber herringbone traction pattern combined with a high polished translucent rubber on the outsole. New flex groove details on the outsole for added flexibility.
Profile: Inspired by the most dangerous snake on earth (Mamba), the Air Jordan XIX exemplifies the level of greatness that only MJ himself could attain.
