Jordan Brand has managed to make the Jumpman lineage all about the glory days in Chicago while occasionally referencing Mike’s past at the University of North Carolina. Seldom do we speak of Michael Jordan’s days as a member of the Washington Wizards or even see a reference to his ownership of the Charlotte Hornets. It makes enough sense – when the greatest player to ever lace up a signature shoe made history in red and black, why reference any other time? The brand has finally gone contemporary in terms of MJ’s current franchise though, as the Hornets theme of purple and teal is on full display with the “Feng Shui” Collection. Highlighting the present with the Air Jordan XX9 and Jordan Super.Fly 4, the brand also digs into the archives to bring out the ubiquitous Air Jordan 1. Each colorway exudes a Charlotte vibe thanks to purple and teal accents, but each silhouette approaches the look differently. You’ll remember these Air Jordan 29s from being featured on a number of Hornets players’ feet throughout last season too. Available October 14th, check out a full view below and let us know if you’re a fan of any of these looks by taking your thoughts to the comment section.
