Yes sir, the "Marquette Golden Eagle" Wade 2

The Marquette Golden Eagle's Fly Wade II is finally here. Inspired by former Dwayne Wade's Marquette University colorway, university gold builds most of the hyperfuse upper shaving off weight, midnight navy takes care of the midsole, heel panel and tongue. The inner-sole was designed to mold the shape of your feet to make it personalized fit, we'll see how it goes since I have not tried balling with any pair of my Wade II yet. 

It has been released at Jordan Brand retailers national wide, as usual not a chance to be released in retail here in Canada. This is my third pair Wade II and it took just over a week to arrive at my door. I'm extremely excited to ball on Lunarlon as this is the first pair of Jordan I own implemented with the technology, inspired by observing astronauts walking on the moon by isolating key impact points on the foot. Lunarlon comprised a mixture of traditional Phylon and Lunar form which gives you impact protection and cushion while able to withstand the rigors it received. Which is somehow similar to Zoom but without an actual air filling and thinner by Nike.

Lunarlon has not been very widely used among Nike shoes, only a few runnings and one of the early Lunar Hyperdunk.

The Marquette uses a slightly different design of shoe box and protection sheet than regular Jordan Brand shoes

No visible Air Max or Zoom Air but built-in Lunarlon module support
