The Air Jordan + TROPHY ROOM XVI is inspired by a twist on a classic silhouette. Flooded in tonal French Blue, The TROPHY ROOM XVI is the 1st time the XVI model has been released since 2008.
The original Air Jordan XVI’s were designed by Nike Senior Footwear Designer, Wilson Smith. With Tinker Hatfield moving up the ranks at NIKE, the XVI was the 1st Air Jordan model since the III Retro that Tinker did not play a role in designing. Wilson Smith incorporated several materials from classic releases. Such as the clear rubber sole found in Retros V, VI & XI and also incorporating patent leather.
“The TROPHY ROOM XVI resonated so well with me because of the premium details incorporated in the model. The patent leather toe, the icy sole, the premium leather used on the shroud. All of those elements truly make this silhouette a classic. For TROPHY ROOM to lead the return of the XVI with help from DJ Khaled is an honor.” -Marcus Jordan
