The “Macho Man” Randy Savage Gets A Jordan Shoe

From Sneakerfiles.com by way of Prowrestling.net comes the most exciting piece of wrestling related outerwear since Jeff Hardy started doing his own shirts. Of course none of the major wrestling leagues came up with this idea. Nike does have some experience with horrendous design ideas (See just about any Oregon Ducks football outfit) but this one gets nailed with a double axe handle off the top rope. The neon colors are spot on without over doing it. You’ve got the laces (top) and soles (bottom) in neon green/yellow. The interior of the shoe is this color but unless you’re wearing them, it will have little bearing on how they look. It would have helped to make the Jordan figure neon green/yellow instead of red since the design doesn’t use it anywhere else. There are plenty of examples of the Jordan symbol color matching with the design so it isn’t always red. The inset panels are the fantastic purple and pink checker board that “Madness” used on a regular basis. I would think some form of pink needs to be included in any Savage tribute because I remember any number of his trunks with pink in them. I love that the checker board flows with the panels shape so the distortions are different all around the panel. I know it’s hacky but I’d give these shoes an “Ooooooh yyyyeaaahhh!” -Kevin
