The Jordan Eclipse is a lightweight summer shoe that takes design cues from some of the most iconic Jordan basketball shoes. The shoe features unique Eclipse tooling in addition to the instantly recognizable Jordan Jumpman logo on the heel, both of which are drawn directly from the Air Jordan III.

The Jordan Eclipse features a peculiar deconstructed textile upper that actually allows for lightweight breathability, with a Neoprene tongue making for a comfortable, adaptive fit. The shoe's low-profile injected midsole includes a Zoom Air heel component for improved support and cushioning.

The Jordan brand may be associated with basketball first and foremost, but these particular offerings show how the shoe's design cues can easily be applied to lifestyle wear and shoes designed for the street rather than the court.
