As suggested with the aforementioned pair, the silhouette is essentially a tribute to MJ’s last championship from his first three-peat with the Chicago Bulls in 1992-93.
Taking cues from the pieces of colorful paper that are typically thrown during celebrations of parades, the theme is evident across the sneaker’s rear section. Comprised of premium textured leather, the black-out profile is further dated with a patent leather wrap throughout the collar section and heel in a slight sheen to further evoke the celebratory finish. Furthermore, metallic gold accents are placed on the straps of the ankle and tongue to finish off the design.
Retailing for $250, you can purchase at pair at select Nike and JB stockists on Saturday, June 25th.

I’m a fan of the silhouette in general and I like the blacked-out finish most of all. The theme is cool but I would’ve preferred gold/silver confetti instead. Still a solid offering though.
