As the NBA’s playoff push is in full swing, some of the league’s best players are getting ready to unveil some of the best post-season colorways to cap off the 2016 campaign. Although his Chicago Bulls are in a nip-and-tuck battle for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs, Jimmy Butler will be debuting the brand-new Jordan Brand Ultra.Fly’s this week.
The two-time NBA All-Star and the 2015 NBA Most Improved Player will break out the new kicks this week as his Bulls take on the Washington Wizards, Brooklyn Nets and Utah Jazz in games that will prove to be pivotal if the Bulls want a change at some post-season success.
Michael Jordan heightened his intensity during playoffs. His agile, graceful, and ultimately deadly play earned him the nickname ‘Black Cat,’ a nod to his unmatched capacity to assess the flow of the game and strike with purpose when the time was right.
Inspired by MJ’s infamous nickname, Jordan Brand unveils the Jordan Ultra.Fly, featuring a Kurim material overlay which takes cues from the black cat. This overlay forms a cage-like upper delivering a custom fit with flexible structure. Its design follows a pattern that mimics the coat of a spotted leopard.
The Jordan Ultra.Fly will be available in three colorways on Jordan.com and in select retail locations April 2 for a suggested retail price of $125.
