The Black Cat Returns
We think the Air Jordan 6 is one of the prettier silhouettes to have come out of the Jordan catalog. It’s bulky, complex, yet purposeful looks carries a certain menace onto the court, and in the hands of Social Status, has elevated it into something of a predator on the hardwood.
Dubbed the ‘Black Cat,’ the particular moniker has a bit of a backstory attached to it, as it all started when Tinker Hatfield observed the motions of MJ. ‘Predatory,’ is what best describes his movements, and as a result, has produced several designs in honour of his legacy, including an Air Jordan 13 with the same name, and a namesake model as well. As the All-Star Weekend approaches, Social Status is reviving the nickname in the Air Jordan 6 specifically for the event.
Concept wise, it stays pretty close to its name. The beast in the ‘Black Cat’ is emulated on the upper, as faux pony hair and python skin are used, and the overall dark and murky colourway represents the extent to which Jordan would go for a win. Highlights of purple finish up the silhouette nicely.
The Social Status X Air Jordan 6 drops on the 13th of Feb, for a price of approximately RM1025.
