Macklemore Says Michael Jordan Hated His All-Green Air Jordan Design

Macklemore returned home to Seattle recently, hitting up sneaker consignment shop, ‘Recess’ with Complex’s Joe La Puma, speaking about a number of different topics including the first Jordans he owed to the first pair he designed with the brand.

As it turns out, Michael Jordan was not feeling the green suede rendition of Mackelmore’s Air Jordan 6- but he went ahead and created it anyway.

Macklemore also preaches the importance of wearing your kicks, going as far to say that some Air Jordans, specifically the 1s and 3s, look best once they’re beat up.

When it was all said and done, Macklemore racked up a $937.08 tab between the ‘Playoff’ 12s, ‘Military Blue’ 4s and two pairs for his baby.

Check out Macklemore’s sneaker shopping experience below, and go shit on those ‘Royal’ 1s that you’ve been keeping in the box because Macklemore said so… or don’t.
