One of the first Jordan Brand sneakers that Jimmy Butler rocked for the Chicago Bulls was the Jordan Super.Fly 3.
The shoe was typically worn by big men like Blake Griffin for it’s support. This came from the Flight Web fit system, which uses webbed straps to wrap around the foot and integrate the laces for a lockdown fit. Like the popular Jordan Air Jordan XX9 at the time, this Super.Fly featured FlightPlate. This helps unlock the Zoom Air on the forefoot to directly feel the Zoom Air under the foot.
