Jordan Brand's latest off-the-court shoe model, the Jordan Eclipse, was revealed Friday as a lightweight summer sneaker with a nod to the Air Jordan III.

​​The new low-top model uses a deconstructed textile upper for lightweight breathability and a Neoprene tongue for improved fit. The injected midsole doubles as the outsole, complete with a Zoom Air component built into the heel.

For its classic tieback, the Eclipse tooling and placement of the Jumpman logo were “drawn directly from the Air Jordan III.”
