This pink and shiny Air Jordan pair looks as if it belongs to Barbie, and it does, just not the one some readers might be imagining. The very first photo of Jordan Brand’s never-before-seen creation was posted on the Instagram page of Nicki Minaj, who has an alter ego by the name of barbie. Nicki is signed to three of the same labels that also includes Drake, whose Air Jordan 10 “OVO” just hit the shelves. Apparently, Nicki Minaj has also signed up to Jordan Brand and her very first Air Jordan is likely a PE that will not arrive at retailers on any upcoming Jordan release dates 2015.
Although the colorway appears to be something Jordan Brand has freshly whipped up, but the model model that serves as the base is a familiar one, namely the Jordan Westbrook 0. For Jordanheads who have no clue, it is the first signature lifestyle silhouette that Jordan Brand created for Russel Westbrook. However, considering that Jordan Brand has dressed up the sneaker to match Nicki Minaj’s flamboyance, so the upper consists of a combination of a pink glitter base with shiny Metallic Gold around it. The sneaker also has matching pink inner lining and laces, and a gradient Purple-Blue hue covers the midsole.
Nicki Minaj is the third hip-hop artist to have apparently signed with Jordan Brand, after Drake and Mackelmore, and to have received an Air Jordan PE that she sported at the Jordan Brand Classic game that took place on April 17th, 2015. Moreover, she is also one of the very few non-athlete females whom Jordan Brand has gifted their very own signature Air Jordan pair, which is regarded as quite a privilege in the sneaker community.
Some Jordanheads may feel that this midtop sneaker designed for Nicki Minaj is not crazy enough, while others may find it quite sufficiently vivid. However, one fact that sneaker enthusiasts will likely agree upon is that these kicks certainly look dope. Too bad for them that they will not be able to get their hands on Nicki’s AJ PE that has been dubbed the Westbrook 0 “Pinkprint” on any of the Jordan release dates 2015.
