Jordan Brand unveils the Ultra.Fly

Michael Jordan heightened his intensity during playoffs. His agile, graceful, and ultimately deadly play earned him the nickname ‘Black Cat,’ a nod to his unmatched capacity to assess the flow of the game and strike with purpose when the time was right.

Inspired by MJ’s infamous nickname, Jordan Brand unveils the Jordan Ultra.Fly, featuring a Kurim material overlay which takes cues from the black cat. This overlay forms a cage-like upper delivering a custom fit with flexible structure. Its design follows a pattern that mimics the coat of a spotted leopard.
