These fresh women's sneakers are an exclusive release from Air Jordan that honor the Michael Jordan-owned basketball team -- the Charlotte Hornets from North Carolina. While many of Air Jordan's sneakers only come in men's sizing, this pair is special as it is the first XIII PE style for women. The neoprene-like material keeps these shoes in style, getting inspiration from fashionable bathing suits from this year's runways. This design makes them stylish and appealing to their targeted female audience.

The shoes are a bright purple hue, with a unique white curvy sole that gives them a futuristic look. The basketball sneakers also have teal detailing on the inside liner and the Jumpman logo -- representing Jordan's team without plastering an in-your-face logo on the tongue. A final unique detail can be seen in the side pieces that look like stylized material turned inside out.

The exclusive women's sneakers release is currently only set for China but hopefully, after an initial popular reaction, they will become availability will reach a larger market.
