Looking for inspiration for the next Jordan shoe (Air Jordan 13), Tinker Hatfield likened MJ to a Black Cat. While showing Jordan sketches of the shoe and the story behind it, Michael asked Tinker how he knew. Michael told him that only his closest friends called him black cat when they were younger. “He got kind of choked up and teary eyed and just thought it was an amazing coincidence but maybe it was also a testament to our relationship, that we knew each other well enough.
It’s been 20 years and we’re now treated with a ‘Black Cat’ rendition of the Air Jordan XXXI. Today, Jordan athletes like Kawhi Leonard or Russell Westbrook evoke the same game as Michael, bringing out their own cat-like approach to the game. The Air Jordan XXXI ‘Black Cat’ drops tomorrow, Saturday, March 11 at all Titan stores (including Titan22.com), retailing for Php 9,895.
