Consumer research conducted by the Jordan Brand has determined that girls often outgrow grade school shoe offerings by age 12, making it difficult for them to find Jordan shoes that fit their size and style; this has prompted Jordan to expand its range of grade school size shoes, which will now be available in sizes up to a U.S. 9.5Y.

Research from the National Shoe Retailers Association shows that Americans' feet are significantly larger than they were half a century ago, and have increased by an average of one full shoe size in only 30 years. Girls specifically experience peak shoe size by the age of 12.

The extended line of grade school size shoes includes classic Air Jordan silhouettes and forward-looking new styles alike. The first releases include variants of the Air Jordan IV and Jordan Future.
