SoleFly has teamed up with Jordan Brand to pay homage to the Miami baseball team. South Beach-inspired teal primary color references the days when the Marlins wore that color way before converting to orange.
Celebrating the Florida Marlins’ 1997 World Series victory, this Air Jordan XX3 comes decked out in the team’s classic teal for a very South-Beach inspired colorway. A premium tumbled leather composes the entire upper, accented by tonal stitching and a gold-flaked midsole.
The Florida Marlins won their first World Series in their fifth season, which is the fastest for any expansion team in history. ... This was the first World Series to go seven games since 1991. ... Series MVP Livan Hernandez was 2-0 after being named the MVP of the NLCS. ... The Marlins won the Series when Edgar Renteria singled home the winning run in the bottom of the eleventh inning. ... The Indians, who were making their second World Series appearance in the last three years, were two outs away from the title in the bottom of the ninth before rookie Craig Counsell tied the game with a sacrifice fly.
