IT'S LIGHT WORK.
Thirty-five models of the Air Jordan and an intuition like no other have led to this moment. Like family members who come before us, the Air Jordan represents a legacy of innate greatness that continues to be built upon. And while each design helps inform the next, the Jordan VI has a special place in the family tree, as it was the sneaker worn by MJ when he won his first of six championships in 1991. Paying homage to the Jordan VI and his six rings, the Air Jordan XXXVI "Psychic Energy" is an acknowledgement of the Jordan legacy and the extrasensory perception of those who carry it.
Light Feel, Big Energy
A full-length Zoom Air Strobel unit is stitched directly to the upper, sitting right under your foot to minimize weight. An energy-returning Zoom Air unit is stacked underneath the forefoot to add an extra burst of responsiveness off the dribble.
Secure for Takeoff
A 2-loop band system paired with high sidewalls provides side-to-side stability, whether you're cutting off the ball on defense or taking off to finish on offense
A multidirectional outsole pattern provides stop-and-go traction for players who stay on their toes and use quickness to get to their spots.
A dynamic, flexible tongue includes targeted padding over the top to ease lace pressure and to provide plush comfort without added weight.
A hollowed-out section between the outsole and midsole helps reduce weight and exposes the shoe's stabilizing shank (a piece of durable plastic that helps keep the shoe from twisting).
