What if Michael Jordan Chose adidas Instead of Nike?

michael jordan adidas What if Michael Jordan Chose adidas Instead of Nike?

Michael Jordan’s influence on the sneaker game can’t be put into words, can it? It’s easier (and somewhat accurate) to state that MJ is the sneaker game, and with his running mate Tinker Hatfield, the architect behind the greatest Air Jordans sneakers of all-time, the two have created a massive cultural phenomenon nearly thirty years after the first Air Jordan shoe. Of course, all of this might not have happened. There was, in fact, a bidding war between Nike and adidas when Jordan was about to enter the league, and had the coin dropped on the other side, the landscape of footwear might have been – correction – would have been a completely alternate universe of style. Sneaker Freaker plays devils advocate in the matter and lays out a possible scenario had Jordan selected three stripes instead of one bellied Swoosh, so be sure to check out Sneaker Freaker for the entire article.

Overlaps between the sneakerhead and toy collecting scenes are numerous, so it’s inevitable that we cross paths from time to time.  The latest example is at least in one sense the greatest of all time, as Hong Kong’s masters of minute detail Enterbay offer up the impressive Michael Jordan Masterpiece collection.  Spanning the period from “I’m back” through ‘The Last Shot’, this set of figurines takes through the second three-peat with 2000 limited edition 1/6th models that include perfectly scaled down Air Jordans X-XIV.  You might also notice what appears to be Enterbay’s own take on the ever popular Air Jordan Legacy collections, so stay tuned to Sneaker News to see if those make a splash after you’ve seen more of these dope MJ figures after the jump.

Air Jordan XI Low – Red – White – Blue – Michael Jordan PE

Michael Jordan himself has played an uncharacteristically large role in recent news regarding the Air Jordan XI Low.  It started last year when we saw him rocking what was presumed to be a player exclusive at a youth basketball camp, that black, white and red colorway we now know to be a June 2013 release.  A bit later came a look at an elegant ‘Tuxedo’ colorup that hasn’t made itself known in any other way.  The question, then, in looking at this latest AJXI Low PE, is whether its Clippers/Jayhawks-ish red, white and blue makeup will remain an MJ exclusive, or if it will follow the first revelation to retail.  Stick with Sneaker News to find out and let us know if you’d cop these were they to release.
