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.
New Hornets guard Jeremy Lin says he had trouble convincing a security guard that he’s an NBA player when he showed up at the team’s Charlotte arena.
The NBA’s first American player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent, Lin tweeted about the encounter Saturday:
A Hornets spokesman said the team didn’t have any comment. The 6-foot-3 Lin signed with the Hornets in July.
Lin played at Harvard and went undrafted before making a name for himself during the second half of the 2012 season with the Knicks. His knack for hitting big shots and double-figure scoring average sparked the term “Linsanity.”
Members at an Adidas gym were in for a surprise when a trolling Jeremy Lin in a fat suit and beard came in to give them the worst possible workout advice ever. Lin, along with Taiwanese celebrity Vanessa Wu, prove they can be the worst (and most entertaining) personal trainers you’ve ever seen.
As warmer weather inches towards us, adidas is set to cover all athletes with protective, breathable layers for warm weather.
