Melody Ehsani Homenageia As Mulheres No Women’s Air Jordan

A designer Melody Ehsani, que já havia trabalhado com a Jordan Brand no Air Jordan 1 Mid no fim de 2019, traz agora mais uma colaboração com o Jumpman. A nova parceria vem em honra ao mês da mulher e às mulheres da WNBA (liga feminina de basquete dos EUA).

O modelo escolhido para a parceria é o recentemente “ressuscitado” Women’s Air Jordan. O tênis vem preto, com detalhes branco e vermelho e, segundo a própria Melody em seu Instagram, é inspirado por cerejas, que são associadas a símbolos de abundância, fertilidade e proteção.

Ainda não há data confirmada para o lançamento mas os teaser de Melody Ehsani apontam para uma chegada às lojas ainda em março.
