It's kind of surprising that Mike wasn't invited to NBC's Saturday Night Live a lot sooner than in 1991, which is where he and the Bulls would dominate the majority of the decade but the masses are usually sleep in presence of greatness. MJ23 took to the Saturday Night Live stage for the very first time in an olive green, quilted bomber jacket complete with black detailing and matching black sunglasses to deliver his monologue. And Jordan Brand has crafted a commemorative pair of kicks for his SNL appearance in the Air Jordan VI 'Flight Jacket'.
The sneaker features an 'Olive' water resistant, nylon base complete with quilted paneling that hits both the lateral and medial sides and adds a luxe aesthetic to the sneaker. While the synthetic tongue of the sneaker comes in a matching 'Olive' hue while black lacelocks and a matching shroud sit at the center of the sneaker, black detailing also hits the heel tab, midsole, as the kicks are rounded out by a partially translucent outsole.
Unfortunately, the Air Jordan VI 'Flight Jacket' will be an extremely limited release going down in August for a retail price tag of $225. Let us know your thoughts on the kicks in the comment section below.
