When you hear someone say "Michael Jordan," what is the first thing that comes to mind? Most people will talk about his legendary NBA career that resulted in six championships. Someone younger might know MJ just because of Air Jordan retros or "that crying face meme." If you ask the right people, they might refer to his infamous lack of contemporary style and way-too-baggy jeans that can frequently be seen covering up sneakers that people pay hundreds of dollars to obtain.
Jordan's latest showcase of his impeccable style occured today at the re-opening of Social Status in Charlotte for the exclusive launch of the boutique's Air Jordan VI collaboration. His Airness arrived at the event rocking a leather cap, bath robe-esque teal fleece zip-up, and a very on-trend pair of his signature #NTDenim with some knee distressing. To complete the fit, Jordan laced up an early contender for 2019's sneaker of the year, the Travis Scott x Air Jordan I—a sneaker currently reselling for right around $1,500 on platforms like StockX.
Unsurprisingly, people on Twitter had a lot to say about MJ's unapologetic flex move. We've gathered some of the best (and funniest) reactions to Jordan going "Sicko Mode" in La Flame's latest collaboration.
