Every year, Jordan Brand celebrates China’s Singles’ Day holiday – the world’s largest online and offline shopping day, occurring annually on November 11 — with a special Air Jordan release, and 2020’s participant in the capitalism-fueled festivities is a jacquard pattern-covered Air Jordan 6. Following up 2019’s Air Jordan 5 “Island Green” and 2018’s wear-away Air Jordan 4 “Singles Day,” this ladies-only take on Michael Jordan‘s sixth signature sneaker draws its inspiration from the “little black dress,” a cornerstone of many women’s wardrobes.
Save for the nubuck forefoot overlays, the entire upper is built from a delicate jacquard pattern that blends sporty motifs like basketballs and nets with classic roses. Of special note is the traditional Chinese knot done up in burgundy on the tongue, which represents good luck. Down below this hangs a metallic gold Jumpman charm. The rest of the shoe follows suit with a black tongue, black heel tab and more jacquard on the midsole.
The Air Jordan 6 “Singles Day” will release exclusively on Nike SNKRS China come October 31, and is priced at ¥1,599 CNY (approximately $238 USD). Although it is a women’s release, it’ll be available in an extended size run.
