Since being founded in 2011, Just Don has managed to create a wealth of desirable collaborative sneakers by blending hoops, hip-hop and sportswear with luxurious materials on Nike, Jordan Brand and Converse kicks, but now the Don C-helmed brand is taking a step in a bold new direction by releasing its first in-line sneaker: the Courtside Hi. Drawing from Don C’s Chicago roots and lifelong love of basketball, the Courtside Hi boasts a silhouette and construction inspired by Michael Jordan‘s famed 1992 Ferrari Testarossa 512TR.

Arriving in “White/Teal” and “Black/Cream,” the shoe’s most obvious piece of Ferrari inspiration is its heel, which boasts ridged detailing that replicates the 512TR’s rear grill and seats. Apart from this high-horsepower piece, there’s plenty of design features that seem to pull from early ’90s Nike footwear — the cut out collar and Just Don badge-equipped neoprene tongue call to mind images of the Air Flight Huarache, while the forefoot overlay gives off some slight Air Flight ‘89 vibes. Each pair is made in Italy of ultra-high quality leather, and sits atop a thick midsole with a shape inspired by the 512TR’s doors to round off its build.

The Just Don Courtside Hi in “White/Teal” and “Black/Cream” will release on the Just Don webstore come June 25.
