Designed by Tinker Hatfield and debuted the same year filming commenced, it was the sneaker that Mike was wearing during his crusade to his first elusive NBA Championship. At the same time, the Caped Crusader was kicking ass in Gotham, leaving Jumpman sole prints on the chest of Max Shreck’s goons. For filming, Nike did up the basketball shoes in a murdered-out colorway for Michael Keaton, and added some Batman-level armor north of the tongue for wen you had to fight crime at 5, but had a pickup game at six.
Though we’ve seen a few black Jordan 6s over the years, we’ve never quite gotten a pair that’s dedicated to the film. Alas, Batman’s version of the Air Jordan 6 was never released to the public, though over the years some of the shoes used in the film have surfaced. In 2015, a single right shoe sold on eBay for a whopping $8,100.(via House of Heat)
