Jordan Brand is spotlighting the Supreme Elevation as Jimmy Butler’s “on-court go-to” sneaker. Here are three reasons that JB mentions as to why the Seventy-Sixers baller prefers the Jordan Supreme Elevation…
1. It has game shoe DNA
With a Flyknit upper (inspired by the Air Jordan 32, Butler’s favorite low), the Jordan Supreme Elevation is the lightest in the Jordan Brand line — even with the forefoot and ankle strap.
2. It’s crazy responsive
To up the shoe’s performance and aesthetic ante, two large visible heel Zoom Air bags are employed. One is in the logical place (the heel), the other was flipped around and placed into the forefoot. The result: It’s the most responsive shoe in the line.
3. It highlights Butler’s go-against-the-grain attitude
From odes to villains to celebrations of his alma matter, Marquette, Butler’s Jordan Supreme Elevation colorways have given the shoe a near-signature feel that has added to the silhouette’s mystery.
The Jordan Supreme Elevation is exclusively available in China at the moment through Nike.com and Nike shops.
