Jordan Brand is releasing a new colorway of the Air Jordan 16 for the Fall of 2017 that serves as a nod to Michael Jordan being the CEO and first majority owner of an NBA franchise, the Charlotte Hornets.
The Air Jordan 16 CEO/Boardroom features a Black suede on the upper with subtle purple accents and iridescent patent leather placed on the toe and tongue. It won’t be easy to get your hands on a pair either as the inside of the tongue signifies that this shoe is limited to only 2,300 pairs. Finishing things off is a translucent outsole.
Michael Jordan’s greatness is celebrated with this Air Jordan 16 CEO edition, as he’s the first league superstar to become a team owner. Being the CEO and majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets, the sneaker is colored in the team’s signature colors with a black-based upper that is accented with iridescent details in teal and purple hues. The shoe is limited to 2,300 individually numbered pairs and completed with a translucent outsole.
The Air Jordan 16 originally released more than 15 years ago (March 2001). This November, the shoe makes its return coming in the OG Midnight Navy colorway. The last time we saw any kind of version of the shoe was back in 2008 when the Black Air Jordan 16 released as a part of the CDP where it got paired up with the Air Jordan 7. Fun fact about the shoe, it was also the first Air Jordan since the Air Jordan 3 that was not designed by Tinker Hatfield.
