Going back to the Air Jordan series lineup, there was a couple of models that were inspired by fast cars, the AJ6 and AJ18. The Air Jordan 6 which silhouette did not completely pattern from Porsche rather features the rear pull tab to be the only influenced attribute was followed by the Air Jordan 18 that has a one-piece upper appearance took inspiration from the Lamborghini Murcielago. These are only two of the many sneakers that try to mimic cars in certain features. As a proof, Nike unveiled lately another car-inspired Nike 6.0 Dunk which gained the name “DeLorean” as derived from the DMC DeLorean model.

Similar to the Air Jordan 13, this Nike 6.0 DeLorean Dunk x DMC wears a one-piece matte silver upper that defines the car’s exterior with hints of the gullwing door on the bottom eyestay. Instead of a Nike tongue label, this shoe uses a Belfast stamp to recognize the Irish factory that introduced the DeLorean DMC-12. The Swoosh appears in an outline manner that corresponds to the rest of the shoe’s details. Lastly, the outsole utilizes colors similar to that of the DeLorean car’s tail lights.

As a Black Friday special, this pair comes as a quick strike release that will be made available at Nike.com, NikeTown locations and selected Nike retailers.
