Ever sit around, wistfully watching your VHS tapes of 1990s NBA games and “Michael Jordan’s Playground”? Well the Converse Aero Jam Hornets is now hitting select retailers, perhaps the cure for your particular brand of nostalgia.
The official colors appear to be “Melange/Night,” but rarely has their ever been a more direct homage. The shoe, made famous as the signature model of the Hornets’ Larry Johnson, is cloaked in aqua nubuck from heel to toe, while purple starkly contrasts on the midsole and outsole, evoking memories of LJ donning his number 2 for Charlotte.
Finally, a flashy, fiery orange patterned inner-lining adds ample flair to the palette, deftly balancing out the abundance of teal.
Grab a pair now at retailers including Ubiq, priced at $110.
