Hypebeast:

As we all know, Michael Jordan is the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets, and as a result, we get to see some pretty fly Air Jordans inspired by the franchise.

This time around, the iconic Air Jordan 1 features a wonderful combination of purple, teal and white, making for a solid drop. Unfortunately however, this is slated to be a China-only release, which is why the brand has opted for a rather peculiar nickname for this model, considering it’s colorway.

Feng Shui is a “Chinese term that translates to wind-water in English, and is a philosophical system of uniting the mind, body and soul with the surrounding environment,” says Sole Collector.

The Air Jordan 1 “Feng Shui” will hit select Chinese stockists starting October 10.

Michael Jordan will take his trademark dispute case to China’s highest court

Michael Jordan will take his trademark case against Qiaodan Sports to China’s supreme court. The company had built its reputation around the former Chicago Bulls superstar without his consent, imitating the player’s signature persona with his Chinese name “Qiaodan” and famed jersey number “23.”

Jordan first sued the Fujian province-based sportswear company in 2012, but the local courts ruled in the opposition’s favor. The decision was upheld by the Beijing Municipal High People’s Court, causing the shoe magnate to appeal the case to Supreme People’s Court for retrial.

Purveyors of streetwear have certainly caught on to Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s high-profile, prolific output over the past couple of weeks. Though the news might’ve been slightly overshadowed by the release of the imaginative Roshe LD-1000 SP, Fujiwara and the Nike camp are yet to curtain their act – saving the very special fragment design x Air Jordan 1 for last. Here we take a first impression of the shoe – which looks classic as ever with its black, white, and ‘fragment’ blue upper. This iteration remains true to the hallmark nine loop design, and uses plush premium leather throughout the sneaker for a lasting, durable sneaker that is sure to live beyond the era of its release.

While no definite release date is set, keep your eyes peeled to our pages for more information as it releases.
