Air Jordan XV Following the success of the XV’s there was no doubt that Nike/JB would continue to release Air Jordan’s, therefore XVI’s hit the shelves in 2001. The XVI’s were designed by Nike’s Senior Footwear Designer Wilson Smith. This meaning it was the first design since the III’s that Tinker Hatfield was not behind. Hatfield was said to have moved up and he left Smith with the hard task of creating a revolutionary new design. Smith decided to bring in a few design elements/fabrics from earlier releases. For instance they saw the return of the clear rubber sole (V, VI, XI) and also featured patent leather (XI).
The Air Jordan XV (15) was released in 1999/2000. Reggie Miller wore it during the 2000 nba finals. This was the first shoe after Michael’s retirement. The design of the XV’s originated from the air craft X-15 which was developed by NASA during the 1950s and was, to say the least, a bit radical. The tongue of the shoe was sticking out in a style that very much made the owners’ thoughts go directly to Michael himself. The sides of the shoe were in a woven kevlar. The Jordan 15’s were the first Air Jordan’s to be negatively received in a while (the last being the Air Jordan 2’s), because the quality on the Jordan shoes was bad.
argylelanvin ^ Air Jordan XV Ray Allen PE. This is from the Milwaukee Bucks days. What y'all know about that? Man, I hope that these come out in the foreseeable future. As in, within the next 3 years. I used to hate XVs, but a colorway like this helped me to see the light when it comes to these.
