Finely-tuned machines were often the inspiration for Michael Jordan’s footwear, and 2007’s Air Jordan 22 was no different. While previous silhouettes

mimicked the look of the X-15 fighter jet, the Jordan 22 looked toward the F-22 Raptor fighter jet for its design cues. Elaborate stitching patterns and reflective 3M provided added detail to the silhouette.
