Jimmy Butler first saw the Jordan Supreme Elevation in late 2018. Since then, the shoe has been the Sixer star's on-court go-to. The shoe, like the player, is no doubt enigmatic. No fear, here's what you need to know.
1. It's a Greater China exclusive
2. It has game shoe DNA
3. 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.
4. 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.
