I thought that with today’s progressive society, gum soles would eventually be replaced with a more sophisticated and futuristic material. But more and more releases use the gum sole as a main feature. One example is the Air Jordan Flight 45 High. The shoe gets its depth from the contrast of the perforated sections against its patent leather and shiny midsole. There are hints of brown on the tongue and heel logos so they can match the soles. I would not bring this to a street game, maybe in a hard court. The rumored release date might be sometime Easter.
