Designer: Tinker Hatfield
Influence: Porsche 911
The Jordan II was luxury, but the Jordan VI was inspired by MJ's personal luxury, his Porsche 911. The heel tab was constructed after the car's rear spoiler so it looked fast on the floor no matter what lane Michael was dominating. The kicks also featured translucent soles, "Visible Air" in the sole, and a two-hole pull on the tongue which allowed for an easier entry of the foot, a feature that has been borrowed by many kicks since.
