Amongst the most popular of Jordan hybrids, by blending a mixture of elements from the Air Jordan 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, and 20 – particularly the Air Jordan 3’s elephant print, the 4’s wings and sidepanel mesh, the overall silhouette and eyelets of the 5, the lace locks and tongue from the 6, the 9 for the back tab, and the 20’s lasered graphics in the sockliner – the sneaker’s upper is essentially dipped in Black with speckles of Cool Grey throughout.
