The "Black Cat" New Air Jordan Shoes will continue Jordan Brand's "Black Cat" lineup into the Holiday 2017 season. It features a simple all black colorway, but has a lot going on, as it consists of nubuck, elephant print on the toe and heel areas, as well as black patent leather. The nubuck upper provides a material contrast to the black patent leather which goes around almost the entire shoe. The midsole of the shoe is two toned with a shiny black color on top to match the patent leather and a charcoal color on bottom which is the secondary color of the shoe. The counterparts to the Pure Money Air Jordan III's, these Black Cats take the same name as the all black Air Jordan IV's. The uppers are made of black nubuck, which is located right above a strip of shiny, black patent leather. Like the white versions, these kicks came with special cement print laces, matching the color of the shoe.
New Jordans 2016, Inspired by Michael Jordan's nickname, the Black Cat 3 was a panther-like colorway of the timeless Air Jordan sneaker. MJ's nature to attack opponents with relentlessness earned him the "Black Cat" nickname that was stitched underneath the heel tab of this blacked out colorway. Though the official color was Black/Dark Charcoal-Black, the nicknames for this AJ3 began as "Blackout 3s" and "Triple Black" Jordan 3s on the message forums like ISS and NikeTalk. Although the colors were primarily all the same, the varying materials and finishes made this colorway much better than just a simple all black Jordan 3. On the upper a nubuck material was used and then accented with a patent strip between the Elephant Print toe surround and heel. Tonal sneakers have been a trend and are highly saturated in the market since the "Red Octobers" released. But before the hype for monochromatic sneakers, the Air Jordan 3 Black Cat was one model well liked by many sneakerheads. Released in 2007, the sneaker is blacked out and features patent leather on the mudguard. Although the sneaker isn't popularized much like the Air Jordan 4 Black Cat, it remains a classic.
Jordans 2017 draws inspiration directly from the Black Panther for the Air Jordan 13 and falling in tune with what inspired Tinker Hatfield for this silhouette, is an all black everything colorway for a full on panther look. The Air Jordan 13 will feature the classic dotted side panels alongside the signature holographic heel pod. The upper side panels will feature 3M, as well as the laces. The outsole will also be done in black to coincide with the triple black theme. With its enhanced cushioning and explosive responsiveness, the Air Jordan XXXI is built for soft landings and springy first steps. Flightspeed technology puts it at the top of the performance footwear food chain, while a Flyweave upper offers flexible, breathable support. The Black Cat colorway evokes MJ's powerful style of play and his status as the game's all-time apex predator.
