Michael Jordan’s Daughter Puts A New Spin On An “Iconic” Air Jordan Design
Michael Jordan’s daughter, Jasmine, is following in her father’s footsteps. The youngest of Michael’s four children with ex-wife Juanita Jordan recently debuted her very own Air Jordan XI Retro sneakers.
The Air Jordan XI “Heiress” kicks are a fresh take on one of the brands most iconic and successful sneakers, just in time for the holiday shopping season. The Jasmine-designed shoe features “diamond shine” offset by black velvet to “elevate the look to make the shoe more sleek.”
“And the all black is hit,” Jasmine, who works as a brand representative for Jordan Brand in Charlotte, North Carolina, told Essence magazine.
“Our design team loved the fact that the Elevens are already an iconic shoe based off of my dad’s history with it,” the 24-year-old Chicago native explained. “They wanted to create a more feminine design and give consumers an extended girl’s size. With this design, people get a shoe that’s elevated luxury and a holiday season shoe that is very elegant, clean and classy.”
And she has a larger messy, no matter how “corny” it may sound. “I just want to people to understand that as corny as it may be, anybody and everybody can be an Heiress,” she continued. “Heiress isn’t just true to it’s actual definition. In all actuality everybody can be an heiress because it is just another form of being a boss. You can just be yourself, take control and have independence. If I’m able to let people know one thing, it’s be whoever you are because you can claim it and own it. It is not hard but you gotta work for it,”
