Seeking inspiration, footwear designer DWayne Edwards found it in the F22 Raptor, Lockheed-Martins state-of-the-art stealth fighter. The thought was that Jordan himself exhibited stealth characteristics when he was playing and he must have agreed, because he even started referring to himself as Stealth during the design process.
The completed shoe, which drops this coming Saturday All-Star Saturday and MJs 44th birthday certainly has a lot of ties to the fighter jet that inspired it. Sleek and smooth, it says state-of-the-art attack from its 3M camo heel to its skeletal titanium-plated shank plate and all points between. The tradition of Air Jordan is alive and well.
