Along with being the G.O.A.T., Michael Jordan has also been among the funniest athlete hosts of Saturday Night Live. Back in 1991, Michael Jordan was one of the biggest sports athletes and so he hosted SNL. He performed several different unforgettable sketches in which he proved to be impressive humors and signified the fact that he understood comedic timing. When Michael Jordan first appeared on Saturday Night Live back in 1991, he was clad in a bedazzling, quilted, olive green-colored bomber jacket. Drawing inspiration from the jacket that Michael Jordan wore on Saturday Night Live, the Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle “Flight Jacket” mimics the same color scheme and construction.
Also being referred to as the Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle “Promo,” the uppers really do appear to resemble Michael Jordan’s bomber jacket from 1991. Its uppers, which are dressed up entirely in a glossy Olive hue, are apparently made up of water resistant nylon, with quilted side panels mimicking the quilted construction of the jacket it draws inspiration from. Black can also be spotted over the uppers, such as the heel pull tabs, inner lining and lace locks, while its midsoles are covered in matching Black and Olive hues. Last but not least, it also appears to be equipped with icy outsoles and will include Red-colored insoles.
While this Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle is one of Jordan Brand’s biggest and most special Jordan releases 2017, but it turns out that it will also arrive in a very special box. In fact, the box that will contain this sneaker appears to be nothing like sneaker boxes Jordan Brand has unveiled in the past. The top of the box is covered in classic Air Jordan sketches, and some of Michael Jordan’s most iconic ads, photos and posters, most notably his “WING IT” poster. Of course, a fairly large “Jumpman” logo has also been placed at the center of the box.
It is being reported that Jordan Brand will also be selling an actual matching jacket separately to be paired with this sneaker. It has already been confirmed that the Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle “Flight Jacket” or “Promo” will be retailing at a price of $225 on September 1st, 2017, so sneakerheads will just have to wait half a month more.
