Michael Jordan and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson are two of the most iconic names in the history of sports and entertainment. The two men are arguably the greatest to ever do it in basketball and wrestling respectively, and have managed to turn that success into seriously amazing careers after their playing days have ended.
MJ is a billionaire and a team owner now thanks to his Jordan brand with Nike, and The Rock has become one of Hollywood's leading actors and a businessman himself. The two even compete in the tequila market with none other than LeBron James also being a player in the space.
However, one of the most iconic pictures of Dwayne Johnson has become a bit of a meme. Who doesn't know the awkward smile with the black turtleneck, blue jeans, and the fanny pack? And while it might be a cause for amusement for a lot of people, it seems to be an opportunity for the Jordan brand, who are using it as inspiration for their Air Jordan 1 High Shoe.
The black shoe comes with a detachable fanny pack at the back, almost exactly like the one popularized by the Rock in his picture. It seems to have amused fans to no end, with some in disbelief, and others making jokes about the shoes.
"Does life get any better than a detachable fanny pack on the back of an Air Jordan 1 High?"
"I don’t know how you’re ever going to top this one."
"Checks calendar…nope…not April 1st…"
"I’ve always wanted a cool place to keep my peppermints at church."
"Y’all ain’t tired of this yet?"
"My question is why?"
"Finally! Just what I needed in my sneakers, pockets. Thanks Jordan Brand!"
"These Mini Fanny packs are perfect for mints and change."
"They put a backpack on a shoe."
"They makin anything."
This is one of the more unique shoe ideas in recent times and would be quite a conversation piece when worn outside. Although, it's hard to say how cool it is to wear a fanny pack in general, let alone on a shoe. MJ and The Rock haven't gone wrong with much in their life though, knowing their combined charisma, this could start a new trend in the world of shoes.
