The Jordan Eclipse Suede is offered in men’s sizing that range from 7 to 14 in D Standard width and half sizes. The fit is true to size for the majority of reviewers. Its low-top profile may not give the necessary ankle support but it allows flexible foot movement.

The Jordan Eclipse silhouette received another update, and this time with a suede upper material for a premium look. Dubbed officially as the Jordan Eclipse Suede, this iteration retains the original’s minimalistic and low-key façade. The upper is monochromatic and clean looking with a Jumpman logo on the heel and tongue as its only design accent.

One of the best ways to wear this shoe is by pin rolling your jeans to highlight its streamlined silhouette. It can also be worn with shorts in casual settings or for day-to-day activities.

One feature of the Jordan Eclipse Suede that truly stands out the most is the entirety of its upper from the materials down to the smallest detail. Since it is like any other Jordan Eclipse shoe sans the material upgrade, Jordan followers and sneakerheads in general would easily recognize this silhouette with its clean, streamlined, and minimally constructed upper. However, the suede update makes this particular iteration of the Eclipse stand out as it gives the popular silhouette a new and premium vibe.

Of course, there are still the iconic Jordan Jumpman logos presented on the heel and tongue, which undeniable seals off the clean overall look of the shoe.

Jordan’s popularity is almost always synonymous with high-performance basketball shoes released over the years. However, the brand also ventured into producing street-ready kicks fit for the modern market.

The Jordan Eclipse is one of the brand’s off-the-court models that first released in March 2015. It is a low-top, lightweight sneaker that is often compared to Nike’s Roshe Run and with a design taking a cue from the Air Jordan III. It features a breathable deconstructed textile upper and a neoprene tongue for a snug fit. There is also the injected sole that doubles as both the midsole and outsole, and an Air-sole unit in the heel. A huge Jumpman logo at the back heel seals off the look.

This basketball-inspired lifestyle silhouette debuted in seven colorways – three of which are in prints with a hint of either gray, black, or red on the midsole, toe, and tongue. The other three colorways are almost monochromatic, while the last one is in a shade of blue with spotted-like print on the upper.

After a month, the Jordan Eclipse was also made available for ladies with its first GS (Grade School) colorway that features a multi-color printed upper. By June of the same year, the silhouette was also added onto the NikeID for customization.

Several new colorways, special releases, and material upgrades on the Eclipse silhouette follow through. The Jordan Eclipse City Pack, which utilizes premium materials and pay homage to London, Paris, and Berlin, was released in late September of 2015. The sneaker boutique SoleFly also released a collaboration on the silhouette in 2016 in limited pairs.

In December 2016, the Jordan Eclipse received a revamped look with a fresh Chukka aesthetics called the Jordan Eclipse Chukka. In 2017, the model also got its leather version called the Jordan Eclipse Leather that retailed at $110.

A suede version of this lifestyle silhouette has also been released called as the Jordan Eclipse Suede. It mimics the original Jordan Eclipse with its minimalistic upper design, almost monochromatic colors, injected sole unit, and air-sole unit in the heel. The only major difference is the material upgrade on the upper as this iteration utilizes premium, supple suede instead of mesh.

  • Like the Jordan Eclipse, this iteration also features an encapsulated Air-sole heel unit and an injected unit sole, which doubles as the midsole and outsole, for a plush and lightweight feel in every walk.
  • Also featured is a herringbone-patterned rubber outsole for grip and traction.
  • Other retailers refer to this shoe as Jordan Eclipse Suede Off-Court Shoes.
  • This silhouette also comes in a Chukka version, which is called the Jordan Eclipse Chukka.
