The Air Jordan Future Cleat’s high-top construction delivers sufficient ankle support with a traditional lace-up closure that is adjustable for a customized and snug fit. Although the high collar construction can be restricting, the mesh material allows flexible foot movement.
This shoe can be availed in men’s sizing that ranges from 7 to 16 in Medium width. The fit is true to size for the greater part of reviewers.
The Air Jordan Future Cleat may not be everyone's cup of tea since many see it more as a functional kick than a stylish pair to strut off the streets. This cleat features a mesh eVent upper that is plain-looking for some, but waterproof and breathable.
The upper is highlighted with 3M reflective details along the laces and sealed off with a Jumpman logo on the tongue. Some colorways add a touch of speckle elements throughout the midsole.
Like the Future silhouette, this cleat version also features a mesh upper but in a high-top construction. It boasts a few noteworthy features that make the shoe both trendy and functional. Designed to withstand the cold weather and wet conditions, it has an eVent upper technology that is not only waterproof but also breathable. The tongue is gusseted to help keep out water, snow, and debris.
The Jordan Future shoe, which first dropped in 2014, is one of the Jumpman models that fuses lifestyle with performance. It is known as the first Jordan hoop-inspired shoe to feature a one-piece woven upper with a sole that took inspiration from the celebrated Air Jordan XI. Lightweight and minimal in design, it did not take much time to achieve fame and success in the sneaker realm.
The Future proved worthy of its spot as one of the most successful hybrid shoes ever issued. It received tons of colorway releases here and then, including premium colorways like the Infrared and the Glow. This mid-top off-court shoe also had a low-top version released in February 2015.
In 2016, while the production of the Future shoes stopped temporarily, the Jordan brand introduced a high-top, winterized, cleat version of the Future called the Air Jordan Future Cleat. Like the Future, it features a mesh/woven-like upper but equipped with waterproof technology. Also adopted from the Future silhouette are the asymmetric lacing and the sole design and construction. 3M reflective detailing is seen on the laces, while the tongue is gusseted to prevent entry of dirt, water, and debris into the shoe.
- The laces have reflective details for added visibility, while the sole unit got inspiration from the AJ 11.
- The asymmetric lacing is a nod to the Jordan Future shoe.
- Also featured is a full-length Lunarlon sole for in-shoe comfort.
- The outsole has deep lugs for aggressive traction on snowy surfaces.
