Teased and mocked-up ahead of the release as per usual, the pair applies the French Blue to the suede Nike Dunk High hits across the heel and lower profile. That's what the Soldier is for. A FlyEase cage on the heel flexes, collapses and rebounds for stepping into the shoe hands-free. Nike debuted the shoe in the fall of 2009 at a global media summit held in Nike SB Dunk High Akron, Ohio, bringing the world to LeBron. This made good sense. The team would strip away more layers from the Soldier VI, building a shoe that LeBron could wear at a moment's notice. All of it was built around giving LeBron lockdown, so we created a shoe completely based around it, Off White Nike Dunks giving him this totally protected, contained force for his feet. The aforementioned red black colorway was later dubbed the Flu Game by sneaker heads; it was the color that Jordan wore during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals on June 11th. It wouldn't be long before Parr's story would appear on daytime interviews and nightly news segments. Here, it seems to draw inspiration from the Brazil colorway, tweaking its arrangement ever-so-slightly for the Fall. Unlike the Dunk Low that led the way many months back, the AJ1 Mid includes far more white. The Jordan 4 did not return to stores again until 1999, roughly one year after Michael Jordan's retirement from the Bulls. Though said to be inspired by the Air Jordan 11 Concord, the upcoming release essentially blends Grape with the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, the latter of which clearly inspires the pair's color blocking. Aside from the color treatment on these Jordan 36s, this upcoming release features a serious taco mascot with a Swoosh logo mimicking Tatum's signature eyebrows. But while key releases make use of Jordan Brand history for nostalgia, collaborations still rival many of these classics in terms of influence.
