Rooted in Heritage & Inspired by The Man
What makes someone an icon? Is it the dedication to their craft, their effortless cool, or their ability to lead the way for others?
Inspired by the idea that before ‘Michael’ there was a ‘Mike,’ we are introducing the Jordan Granville Pro SP, a modern spin on a classic silhouette, and the newest addition to the 23E Category. A balance between innovation, streetwear, and a creative mix of textiles crafting the foam midsole for maximum comfort.
The Social Status x Jordan Granville embodies the energy, passion, and human development of an icon. Before he became a global icon, Michael Jordan was an innovator within his own surrounding community perfecting his craft.
