Flying High: A Family Affair

The 25-year-old’s fast rise to sensation status comes from his unpredictability on the court. Kawhi Leonard is the shining example of how the Jordan Brand family “continues to surprise us, often out of the blue” (Nike.com).

Smooth Rides with Futuristic Vibes

Flight Guy’s colorway is inspired by Jumpman’s favorite color, royal blue. The Air Jordan XXXI is known for its futuristic look, but now in Flight Guy’s colorway, it becomes the sneaker of the future.

The combination of Flyweave on synthetic leather gives the sleek silhouette an edgy textile look. The royal blue and black overlap for a thrilling, speed-defying vibe: Jordan and Leonard are coming at you so quickly, it’s a blur.

The grainy, “mixed pixel” look highlights the futuristic vibes that define this Air Jordan XXXI. The mix at the front of the shoe fades upward toward the rear of the sneaker, with some blue-on-blue stitching detail. The sole takes on tri-color detail (blue/white/blue), with a single metallic “XXXI” embossed at the Achilles heel. A single, black Jumpman right behind the ankle pops against its royal blue backdrop.
