Sneaker Focus: Air Jordan 6 All-Star 'Black Hornet'

Air Jordan 6 Retro All Star 'Black Hornet' available to buy at Soleheaven

So it's that time of the year again where the best of the best from the NBA come together and compete in the All-Star game, East vs West! Which side are you on? 

It's only right that Nike has produced a special iteration of the Air Jordan 6 for the special game. The 6's are the perfect match for yet another momentous occasion in NBA history. They are the sneaks MJ wore for the season he won his first NBA title so you already know they have some kudos to their name. First released in 1991 the 6’s have been host to some iconic colourways such as the OG Infrareds & Carmine White and most recently the Black Cat's which release a month ago and we even created a special one-off print to celebrate the release.

The 6’s feature some of the greatest technology with a reinforced toe box to prevent creasing and increase durability, even the position of the heel tab is done so it avoids your Achilles' tendon, making the Jordan 6 the first shoe to have any sort of moulded structure on the back. Combined with visible Air, the 6 was an instant hit on and off courts all around the world since '91.

This makeup is completely unique, with iridescent panelling throughout. The Iridescent upper has the same aesthetic of a insect's shell and wings, which is complimented by a honeycomb stitching around the Jumpman branding on the heel even the translucent outsole has a hint of. Giving it the nickname of the 'Black Hornet'.

3M reflective detailing creates a striking aesthetic in the night time when struck by the right light, iridescent lace tips and midsoles all while sitting on top of a iridescent translucent outsole. Hits of Black found on the laces, tongue, heel and midsole give this silhouette definition.

These are definitely an unusual colourway but here at Soleheaven we love unique styles, what do you think of these? We would love to know how you would style these. Tag @Soleheaven or #Teamsoleheaven to show us your look.

Releasing at 08:00am (GMT) Friday, 17/02/2017.
