A Look at Mark Wahlberg’s Custom Air Jordan Sneaker Inspired by Transformers

Mark Wahlberg collaborated with Jordan Brand to create a 1/1 sneaker that is “more than meets the eye”.

Dropping this week: Air Jordan 4 Flyknit Hyper Royal

Mark Wahlberg, in coming up with a sneaker design with Jordan Brand for his custom shoe, initially wanted to create a pair of Air Jordans that could “transform”.

In an interview with Jordan Brand, the Hollywood actor said his plan was to have the Air Jordan 4 silhouette transform into the Jordan 5.

However, Jordan Brand didn’t roll with Wahlberg’s idea due to its complexity.

Eventually, Wahlberg came back down to earth and settled on the futuristic Jordan 5 silhouette for his custom Air Jordan Transformer PE.

The custom Jordan Transformer PE, gifted to Wahlberg to celebrate the release of Transformers: The Light Knight, features a shiny black leather upper with grid pattern detailing and a translucent glow-in-the-dark outsole. In addition, an Autobot logo can also be found underneath the sole.
