Another story is that inspiration behind the design of the Air Jordan XV was Michael Jordan’s tongue. He has a wagging tongue and this is what the designers wanted to portray in this shoe. There are mixed feelings from Air Jordan enthusiasts when it comes to this shoe. However, one thing that most people agree on is the fact that the idea behind the design was very original. Although Michael Jordan never wore this shoe to a game, it has a unique design and there is no other sneaker that looks like it out there. It is therefore a great option.
