The Air Jordan 33 is by far the most advanced and revolutionary Air Jordan model that Jordan Brand has ever released.
Not only does the Air Jordan 33 have a techy and futuristic design, it’s also the first model to utilize Nike’s FastFit technology.
The Air Jordan 33 progresses the legacy of visible technology in the Jordan line by challenging a different aesthetic norm. FastFit eschews laces and proposes a new system for containment on court.
How FastFit works:
Loops on the tongue and heel allow easier entry
The tightening system activates its cables with a single tug of the forefoot strap, creating a full 360-lockdown
Eject by pulling the side loops to release the cables
Like all of the Jordan models (after the Air Jordan 30), the Air Jordan 33 also features subtle design cues from the past. The window to the tightening system mimics the original Air window, and the use of “Nike Air” on the heel tab is a reflection of the Air Jordan 3, 4 and 5. The extra-large tongue is also the perfect canvas for a Jumpman — just as it was when Hatfield debuted the logo on the Air Jordan 3.
That being said, the Air Jordan 33 Low Black Cement pays tribute to what many consider the best Jordan of all-time, the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement. Details on the shoe consists of a Black upper with grey detailing on the leather tongue. Fire Red detailing is then present on the Jumpman branding and the subtle branding/details on the tongue area. Nike Air branding in white on the heels, tonal elephant print on the heel, a split black and white midsole, and an icy blue translucent outsole complete the look.
