Throughout the years we have seen an assortment of Jordan Fusions rise and fall. Remember the Jordan Dub Zero? How about the CMFT 13s? Forgettable as past fusions have been, there have been some success stories. The Jordan Spizike for instance, combining elements of the Jordan III, IV, VI, IX and XX, continues to have new colorways release every year, many of which end up selling out. Yet with each new year comes a new Jordan Fusion, and 2012 saw the birth of the Jordan Son of Mars. Retailing at $175, Jordan Brand created one of the priciest base models of the year that only served to sit on shelves.
The fusion formula was not that different than the Spizikes, bringing together aspects of the Air Jordan III, V, VI, and XX. Yet, for all intents in purposes, the shoe was not well received by the sneaker community. At this point, one would assume it would be back to the drawing board. However, Jordan Brand kept with the design and introduced the Jordan Son of Mars Low. To make things worse, they chose to pair the shoe with the "Do The Right Thing" colorway, based off Spike Lee's movie of the same title. Pictured above, I've yet to find the words to describe how misguided this colorway truly is. Originally seen on the Air Jordan III (pictured below) The Son of Mars Low goes over the top with yellow laces and midsole. The pepperoni-colored red around the 40 Acres and a Mule logo on the tongue looks out of place, and the all green sock liner caps off what might be one of the top ten worst Jordan Colorways to date (although I will always have a special place for the Plaid Jordan 5 Fusion). What do you think? Where does the DTRT Son of Mars Low rank on your list of Jordan Fusions?
