A new reality show, some unreleased kicks, and the king of Boston (Mark Wahlberg) got the internet buzzing right now. Mark stopped by Nike headquarters to talk to Team Jordan about getting his own shoe. Who knows if it will hit retailers or it will just be a CE (celebrity exclusive – I just made acronym up).
SOURCE WRITES: Look past the beaming mug of Mark Wahlberg in this set of screenshots from his Wahlburgers reality show and you’ll get a pretty exciting view of unreleased Air Jordans. The images come from a trip that Wahlberg took to Nike’s world headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, in an episode that aired this week.
During the show, Wahlberg talked with Jordan Brand’s design team about getting his own shoe, a segment that included this preview of Jordan 4s and Jordan 6snever seen by the public before. It’s unclear which of these sneakers will actually be hitting retail and which will be left on the cutting room floor.
Maybe the most interesting shoe in the group is the black/infrared Air Jordan 6. It’s possible that sneaker is from 2014’s release of the original colorway, but that feels slightly unlikely as the rest of the stuff on display is more current. Could this be a first look at a future release of the sneaker, this one featuring “Nike Air” on the back? The heel is unfortunately obscured here, so it’s impossible to tell.
