Dressed to Impress

Instant Fly really is fly when it comes to a appearance. The ivory/infrared colorway gives the shoe a clean and updated look in premium suede.

There is also a fresh take on the construction, where the tongue and forefoot are actually combined in a single piece. With fewer “moving parts” to the shoe, Instant Fly has a more comfortable and exact fit to the foot.

Instant Fly, Instant Gratification

Knee-jerk reactions aren’t always the best, especially when it ends up in a knee injury. Instant Fly combats tough, hard landings with “lightweight, responsive and durable Nike React foam” (via Nike.com). Nike’s newest anti-shock technology is on point when it comes to keeping joints safe during the game.

Leave high-impact connections in the past, and look to the future for a “springy,” cushioned return to the floor. As the master shock-absorber, players can stay focused on the game instead of stressing over injuries.

As the World Turns

The court might be a rectangle, but players move in every shape and direction. Instant Fly also features the brand-new, ultimate outsole to grace the court:

“multi-directional traction pattern in the form of four high-pressure wear zones, all of which provides optimal grip on the hardwood.”

The “hot spots” of the outsole give the player a much better, safer turning radius. With 360 degrees of usable surface area, Instant Fly quickly runs circles around its competition.

Days in the Lives of Flight

The concept of “Flight,” defined by Jumpman himself, continues to carry Jordan Brand into the 21st Century. The brand has expanded its family to top athletes over the years, proving that coming generations can continue to carry the torch passed by Michael Jordan.

Of course, when thinking of the brand, we envision top athletes at peak performance. It just so happens that Nike created Instant Fly for injured Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers. Writer Chris Harris explains that the performance-ready shoe was made with injured players, like Griffin, in mind (via HypeBeast).

Griffin has suffered a litany of injuries during his career, most recently a serious one to his big toe that has put him out of commission temporarily. The key word is temporarily; he just signed a new, “5-year deal, $173 million contract” with the Clippers (via ESPN.com).
