You’ve probably heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of Singles’ Day? Started by pridefully unattached university students in the ‘90s, this unofficial holiday has since become the single biggest shopping day of the year in China. Celebrations are simple – be a bachelor/bachelorette and consume in the name of self-care. Sounds pretty good, right?
Jordan Brand is no stranger to the annual event; in fact, they often partake in the festivities by offering conceptual sneakers for singles to enjoy. This year, they are slated to release a new, women’s-exclusive colorway of the Air Jordan 6, appropriately dubbed “Singles’ Day.”
The Air Jordan 6 “Singles’ Day” is draped in an elegant, black jacquard-patterned upper, which features floral and basketball-inspired designs throughout. The texture is contrasted by black, nubuck overlays on both the lateral and medial sides.
Decorative Chinese knots are tied atop the tongue in a tasteful burgundy hue, symbolizing good fortune and prosperity. In China, sophisticated knotting such as this would oftentimes be adorned with a charm to further enhance the look, not to mention, the luck. Naturally, these knots come equipped with metallic gold Jumpman charms.
Moving down the sneaker, you’ll find a familiar jacquard on the midsoles, which house Max Air units in the heels. It’s completed by black rubber outsoles, with semi-translucent, blue rubber accents.
The Air Jordan 6 “Singles’ Day” is coming (stag, of course) to JimmyJazz.com on November 25th for a retail price of $190. Don’t miss out.
