Social Status works in collaboration with Jordan Brand by Nike on a new iteration of the signature Air Jordan 6 sneakers for the warmer season. It drops in celebration of this year's NBA All-Star Weekend, which takes place in North Carolina's Charlotte. This is also the same location as Michael Jordan's birthplace, marking his own NBA franchise as well -- the Charlotte Hornets. The new colorway is entitled 'Black Cat,' which is the alter ego of Jordan.
The nickname was originally coined by Tinker Hatfield, which now initiated a black-themed colorway referencing a black panther. The new uppers are constructed from black snakeskin materials accompanied by pony hair details across the overlay. There are also some purple details across the lave toggle, midsole, and the heel tab.
