Air Jordan 15 / Air Jordan XV Sneakers

Michael Jordan stepped away from the game but in the year 2000, the Air Jordan 15 which was modeled after an X-15 rocket plane carried on his heritage of innovation. This was the first Air Jordan release without His Airness personally promoting it on court. MJ’s absence with the shoe’s debut alarmed many of his supporters whether or not this model will excel as a stand-alone piece.

For Jordan Brand, it was a “so be it” phase so the pursuance of the Air Jordan 15 was accomplished having one unique design with a woven Kevlar upper, Pebax heel counter, and Zoom Air unit. The fighter plane inspiration was emphasized by the woven part although the base comes in a traditional Jordan way. Some thought that the heel design was adopted from a Prada shoe, yet the tongue being stuck out received the highest attention percentage.

Going into details, a Red Jumpman logo was stitched on the inner side of the overwhelming tongue which is a perfect match-up to the Red vertical strip on the heel. The inscription “23/6/15” on the heel speaks to MJ’s jersey number, championships won, and the shoe’s model.

It may have been a hard time for the Air Jordan 15 to be established but the first release was followed by numerous colorways and even sample models. A slip-on moccasin style was even dropped but it ended to be a beach shoe rather than something that anyone could be proud of on the court.

However, the AJ15 would have a positive impact to us today if we know how to determine the artistic side that the shoe itself was trying to convey. Fashion and innovation can speak alone!
