Sicker Than Your Average- Jordan Delta Vachetta Tan

160 swiftly. 
See it, buy a new one.

This seems to be the mindset these days with the purchasing habits of retro Jordans. 

Every couple of weeks, a new colourway of a classic Jordan releases.  Mass hype-fuelled hysteria ensues, normies complain they cannot get a pair, and resellers make $22.48 profit per pair while Stock X makes $12.73.

Such is sneaker life. 

But once in a while when the sneaker stars align, a new silhouette is born. 

And align, the sneaker stars did, for the release of the Jordan Delta Vachetta Tan.

The Jordan Delta, in the Vachetta Tan colourway, features a myriad of retro and futuristic design elements that seamlessly integrate into one truly unique sneaker silhouette. 

High quality suede and mesh materials layer upon the uppers to accentuate shape and design, while the redesigned React foam on the midsole rounds out the cushioning duties. 

Suede overlays, subtle branding, and peekaboo hidden refined details.

What is unique about this particular React midsole is the implementation of a firmer compound rubber in high wear areas, which provides both structural support and reduces wear and tear. 

Mmmm, React goodness.

This application of React foam also creates immediate step in comfort, with just enough foot support to avoid feeling overly mushy on foot. 

Perhaps the best feature of this sneaker is the subtle execution of Dad vibes.  The Jordan Delta is subtle enough to be partnered with faded white, knee high length tube socks from a Dad bod, while simultaneously being versatile enough to give hypebeasts a run for their garishly branded designer sneakers.

Dad vibes-just add white tube socks.

One recommendation if you are considering getting a pair of the Jordan Delta is the fit.  In my opinion, they fit a half size bigger than standard traditional Nike sizing.  With a primarily mesh based toe box, this half size up may translate into a sloppy fit down the road.  So a half size down from your regular Nike size is recommended. 

The forward thinking vision of Jordan brand to create the all new Jordan Delta silhouette, makes this pair sicker than your average.

Stay Solefullylaced,

      They are low key hype. Better for tube sock walking than doing stepbacks.
