Suns commission designer to make custom Jordan 4s to match teal indigenous-honoring jersey
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - The Phoenix Suns have commissioned Vick Almighty, a designer with RESHOEVN8R, to design custom Jordan 4s to match the team’s new teal jersey that pays tribute to Arizona’s indigenous populations.
The shoes were made with design elements from the 2022-23 City Edition uniform and feature the re-imagined Suns logo created to look like the Native American medicine wheel on the shoe’s tongue.
Each shoe displays 11 arrowheads, 22 in all, to reflect the 22 Tribal nations of Arizona that are also featured on the jerseys. Inside the shoes are custom insoles with the word “Sun” in each tribe’s language.
Reporter Colton Shoe went to the Footprint Center to check out the jerseys last week and their significance to both the Suns and the community at large.
