The Jordan Brand calendar ends on December 31st with the drop of the Air Jordan 6 Black Cat (JB is just calling it Black from the looks of things). Originally believed to just be an all-black take on the classic silhouette, the actual release is a little bit different than that. Perforated upper, reflective elements, dark blue translucent outsole, white accents all change the look up so much that many are having a hard time toning down their expectations. What looked like it should have been a slam dunk release to end the year is now a sad whimper that’s not unlike a cat expressing their displeasure. Batman would not be pleased, to say the least.
Here’s a look at the Air Jordan 6 Black Cat remade in the NBA 2K17. Obviously putting perforations on the upper and adding reflective accents was never going to happen, but the most glaring difference is the midsole speckle that is spread throughout the bottom. If you change the color of the speckle to white, it messes up one part and vice versa. My guess is most people would prefer a Black Cat 6 without the perforations.
Now just for fun – and wishful thinking – here’s the Black Cat 6 that I’m guessing most people would have preferred made it to stores. All Black Everything, just like Batman.
