The 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend has finally arrived. To celebrate, sneaker retailer Social Status has teamed up with Jordan Brand to release an exclusive collaboration featuring the Air Jordan 6.
The last time the NBA All-Star Game was played in the city of Charlotte, N.C., was in 1991 when Michael Jordan wore the “Infrared” Jordan 6 during the game. Paying tribute to the signature model he wore on-court, the Social Status x Jordan 6 will feature a premium construction that’s inspired by MJ’s lesser-known “Black Cat” nickname.
The upper consists of black pony hair that’s paired with subtle snakeskin details seen underneath. Adding a bit of color to the kicks are vibrant purple accents covering the Jumpman branding on the tongue as well as on the heel tab and on the midsole.
