Mike and Kobe captured the imagination of America with their performances under Phil Jackson, but it is difficult not to recognize his holistic approach. The nickname “Zenmaster” speaks volumes about how he impacted Michael in more ways than one-although we may never know exactly what those were. To that end, his footwear line will pay tribute to the former New York Knick with a special-edition sneaker, the Air Jordan 4 “Zen Master”.
We don’t know much about the sneaker yet, but it’s clear that this will be one of Nike’s most interesting releases in years. The upper has an intriguing galaxy-like design with light purple color and translucent parts on rear clips and wings which reference Phil’s obsession over Eastern philosophy or star charts to name just two things! They’re accented by black & white colors when compared against their bolder counterparts for more subtlety than usual.
While we await more info, grab a quick look at the release here below, and with many more details to follow over the coming weeks.
