It’s widely known that Michael Jordan has a taste for the finer things in life, particularly automobiles.
In fact, legendary Nike designer Tinker patta Hatfield drew on MJ’s love for fast cars in his concepts for Jordan’s sneaker line several times over the years, notably in the Air Jordan 14.
But did you know it was the Air Jordan 6 that first brought to life some on-foot automotive inspiration.
Legend has it that Jordan’s Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet ‘Flat Nose’ was the catalyst for the design behind the AJ 6, the
sneaker which His Airness wore when he secured his first NBA Championship.
You can see the likenesses in the toe of the shoe compared to the hood of the Porsche, and in the heel tabs that look like the car’s rear spoiler.
And what’s a fast car without a fast colorway? Lucky for you, Jumpman has just the right mix this summer with the Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Electric Green.’
The Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Electric Green’ incorporates an all-black suede upper, glow-in-the-dark outsoles and pops of the namesake Electric Green on the midsoles, heel tabs, tongue logos and lace locks.
The classic features we know and love from the AJ 6 – Visible Air, Jumpman insignia on the outsole and lace pockets – return in OG form as well.
adidas unleashed the first Yeezy BOOST 380 on the sneaker-buying world in December 2022, combining familiar design elements with a new silhouette to expand Kanye West’s signature footwear line.
Now its latest colorway, the summer-appropriate ‘Alien Blue,’ is dropping in Men’s sizing at JD Sports on 5/31.
The Yeezy BOOST 380 features an upper composed of multi-toned re-engineered Primeknit in a sock-like construction, providing a snug yet adaptable fit.
The translucent monofilament window is woven into the upper, adding visual interest and breathability. This model features stretch laces with silicone closure for easy on and off wear and comes equipped with a second set of standard laces.
A reengineered full-length BOOST midsole patta elevates the cushioning experience, offering optimal comfort where consumers need it most. The herringbone rubber outsole offers unique design cues and improved traction.
