It was first introduced in 1998 and drew design cues from Michael Jordan‘s love of high-speed luxury vehicles, more specifically his personal Ferrari 550 Maranello. Cemented in basketball history, MJ famously wore the model for Game 6 of the 1998 NBA finals.
The sports legend hit the winning shot with five seconds left in the game to secure his sixth Championship title and second three-peat. Additionally, the game would serve as Jordan’s final appearance with the Chicago Bulls.
Set to be offered in two distinct colorways, it also features a leather and nubuck upper dressed with an array of metal studs and choice hits of red to match the printed insoles.
Branding comes in the form of Jumpman branding at the toe regions, woven logos at mesh tongues, rubber logo heel panels and Supreme marked enamel shield graphics.
Finally, elevating the shoe are painted contrasting midsole panels paired with court-ready rubber outsoles and Supreme x Jordan Brand hangtags.
The release will be available in-store at New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London, Paris and also online from June 13. Japan will see a later release as usual on June 15.
