Jordan Brand pays tribute to the Japanese heritage of Washington Wizards player Rui Hachimura with a beautiful Air Jordan 36 with “Sakura” motifs.
As its name suggests, this collaborative offering features a black jacquard base, on which comes a very pretty floral pattern in red, pink and green tones, alongside several white cranes, symbol of happiness and luck. All in an embroidered finish.
Touches of red, green and yellow appear in several places, including on the heel-tab, the lining, and on the molds of the midsole.
Rui’s personal logo is displayed, in a gold finish, on the left tongue – the Jumpman on the right. It is accompanied by Japanese characters that are hidden on the back of the tongues. These characters are also found on the heel-tab.
Semi-translucent outsole color “Mint” complete the design.
