If there's anyone who doesn't have to respect the guidelines of Jordan release dates, it's Michael Jordan himself.
The man is once again turning heads during his China trip, this time showing up in Shanghai wearing the upcoming Air Jordan 1 "Cyber Monday". The sneaker is a black leather affair with a clean white sole and the celebrated "Nike Air" treatment on the tongue.
More mysterious here is the footwear of Tinker Hatfield, who appears to be wearing a blacked-out pair of Nike Roshe Runs. The chunky heel and the piece at the toe suggest he's got that Nike Sportswear creation on-feet, but it's strange to think that Hatfield would show up to a Jordan event without wearing Jordans – especially since he was the brains behind so many of the best ones.
