Mbappe unveils Paris Saint-Germain kit inspired by Michael Jordan sneakers


Paris Saint-Germain have stepped back in time and took inspiration from NBA legend Michael Jordan for their 2020-21 third kit, which was unveiled by star striker Kylian Mbappe.

The French giants have been slow to release their new kit, as the season is already well under way.

But, with their strong yet unremarkable home and away kits for this campaign, their third replacement is well worth the wait.

PSG’s latest collaboration with Nike’s Jordan brand resulted in a deliciously rich burgundy uniform based on the classic Air Jordan VII “Bordeaux” sneaker released by the great Chicago Bulls Jordan at the 1992 NBA All-Star Game, the first pair to come out in that color.

In case this match – which was Magic Johnson’s last All-Star Game – didn’t jog your memory, Jordan wore them as well while appearing alongside another GM when he starred in the music video for the single ” Jam “by Michael Jackson in 1992.

In addition to the deep burgundy base of the jersey, shorts and socks, the extremely luxurious kit features rich gold accents and black and white trims on the shoulders and sleeves.

The badge on the chest also sports gold patches in reference to the Ligue 1 champion’s 50th birthday celebrations this year.

The kit was launched in conjunction with a brand new Jordan Brand x Paris Saint-Germain clothing capsule, all inspired by the history, lifestyle and culture of football in the French capital.

The line includes hoodies, a varsity jacket and several pairs of Jordan sneakers among various other casual wear – as modeled by female PSG stars Nadia Nadim, Grace Geyoro, Jordyn Huitema and Marie-Antoinette Katoto.

While select items from the collection are available now, the entire collection (including the kit) will be available from October 10.
