#30 – AIR JORDAN SIXTY PLUS
Hybrid models are always a touchy subject with many Jordan purists, but occasionally, one comes along that manages to get love from even the most skeptical of collectors. When it comes to Jordans, the blueprint for hybrid success was laid by the Spiz’ike thanks to its clever blending of classic Air Jordan components. While other mash-up efforts didn’t achieve the same warm reception, the Sixty Plus seems to have come together pretty seamlessly through the use of the proven Spiz’ike formula. The Sixty Plus design was inspired by
Michael’s tendency to light up an opposing squad for 60 points or more, a feat that MJ accomplished quite a few times in his career. The Sixty Plus blends elements of four different sneakers that Mike wore while going off for at least 60 points. The Air Jordan 1, II, V and VII were all incorporated into the design, with the end result being a solid new style with a familiar aesthetic. While it may not have reached Spiz’ike popularity thanks to a possible overload of colorways, the Sixty Plus still stands as a worthy effort nonetheless. Many thanks to Premium Laces on the Air Jordan Sixty Plus.
