Dennis Rodman created an iconic Michael Jordan shoe?

During an appearance on a recent episode of Sneaker Shopping, Rodman opened up about his unofficial collaboration. He said Nike wouldn’t use his name because he wasn’t famous enough. Additionally, he claims to have pioneered the inverted swoosh, which is Travis Scott’s signature shoe detail along with the Jordans.

Rodman said: “I think I was the first guy to do it. So it’s like he’s making all this fucking money, really Nike… I don’t know why Nike don’t call me. Dennis, thank you so much giving us the opportunity to use your name to give it to Travis Scott.

Although there is a clear reverse swoosh on the Darwin, there is no clear evidence of Travis’ idea. However, one thing is clear, the Travis and Jordan collaboration has made money for Nike. Scott offers smart redesigns on the iconic Jordan shoes. With a limited number of pairs, the shoes sell out in minutes.

There’s no doubt that Travis will continue to deliver iconic new collaborations with Jordan. Michael Jordan has also benefited greatly, earning more than one billion brand dollars. With the brand only on the rise, “His Airness” has left a legacy that will never die in sneaker culture.
