Today’s Daily Jordan focuses on the Jordan Pound, the early ’00s alternative to a pair of Timbs. It’s important to remember that when the Pound released in 2003, the boot genre of footwear was just starting to branch out into more sneaker-like directions. Jordan Brand was helping to lead the charge away from the traditional work site styles with options like the Pound, AJ6 Boot, and the upscale Two3 line. The Pound is seen here in classic Wheat/Metallic Gold, a rough and tough suede leather construction with boot lacing and a lugged sole. All of the functionality of a serious stomper without the clunky utilitarianism. Nowadays you’re seeing an ever greater shift toward sneaker iterations to broaden the appeal with “Winterized” releases like the Air Jordan 1 and 6 Rings. But it was drops like the Pound that paved the way. Would you like to see Jordan Brand retro boots? Until and unless, you can still pick up original pairs from sellers like gmf2010z on eBay.
