Designer: Tinker Hatfield
Influence: X-15 Fighter Jet
Tinker Hatfield had the blueprint for Mike's stealth bombers. Okay, no one called them that, but if Jordan wouldn't have retired for a second-time, it was bound to happen. The XVs took design cues from the X-15 fighter jet developed by NASA in the 1950s. The jet is futuristic, with its long, streamlined nose, which is portrayed in the shoe. The X-15 has a reputation for being of the fastest and most aggressive aircrafts, perfectly fitting of MJ's persona.
