Air Jordan 16 “Boardroom”
Release Date: October 20, 2017
Features: Iridescent details & Charlotte theme
Boardroom Steals the Show
Air Jordan 16 is no stranger to stealing the show. The unique silhouette of the shoe with two looks has been a favorite among sneaker collectors since its 2001 debut. Boardroom turns back time even further, revisiting MJ’s college years for inspiration.
Jordan Brand takes MJ’s the formative years and transforms them into a the ultimate kicks of the 21st century. The Charlotte-themed shoe takes its colors to the next level with iridescent teal detail and a matte black microsuede shell and upper. Boardroom rocks a youthful, fresh-faced look with the sophisticated detail of MJ’s legacy, in both basketball and fashion.
Head of the Table
The Charlotte super-shoe is nostalgic, and illustrates how far Michael Jordan’s career has come since he began. Boardroom‘s profile at Nike.com focuses on one achievement in particular:
The latest colorway celebrates MJ’s most recent milestone: the first league superstar to become a team owner.
Jordan went from having his head in the game, to being at the head of the table. So don’t let the colorway fool you: it’s a matter of remembering where the greatness began. From the teal toe box to the iridescent paneling, Boardroom is the right combination of business and splendor.
Unmasking the Master
As seen in previous Air Jordan 16’s, the shroud is still outfitted with snap closures and Velcro. The fastidious fasteners don’t get much camera time unless they’re being removed, but there’s still a pop of teal on the inside that keeps things bright.
Once the shroud is removed, Boardroom keeps things low-key. Microsuede is the perfect textile to frame the iridescent panels. Teal remains evenly toned-out from the patent toe box down to the outsole, making the colorway multi-dimensional.
