The Air Jordan Son of Mars ‘Pop Art’ sneakers jump out at viewers with color and attitude. With bright colors and a sleek design, these sneakers are one of the most creative installments in the Air Jordan collection.

These kicks were inspired from art in the 1950s, which gives them that flashy comic book feel. The shoes have a baby blue trimming with red spikes that look like the top of a speech bubble. The laces are a cartoon green color, but are mostly covered by a Velcro strap, which is covered in bubble letters.

If Michael Jordan had worn the Air Jordan Son of Mars Pop Art shoes during his comeback with the Washington Wizards, he probably would have led the team to ten consecutive championships.
