Nicki Minaj is one of the world’s most famous musicians. Her music is undeniably famous, and the visual associated with her art is equally so. Fans go crazy whenever Minaj releases a music video or any form of visual. Overall, her vision and talent have propelled her to this point.
Having said all of that, it should come as no surprise that Minaj has come through with various collaborations over the years. Brands are always trying to work with her, including in the sneaker world. For instance, Nicki was working with Jordan Brand throughout the 2010s.
As it turns out, amid her rollout for the 2014 album The Pinkprint, Minaj had numerous Jordans made in tribute. These models never hit retailers, however, there are a few collectors who got their hands on them. Among these models was an Air Jordan 6 Low in “Barbie Pink.”
Below, you can actually see these samples thanks to the Instagram sneaker account @englishsole. It is always fun when these shoes resurface online as they are a piece of history. As you can see, the shoe begins with a white leather upper. Subsequently, we get some purple and pink highlights that truly make the shoe pop.
Overall, this is a very cool colorway that isn’t exactly for everybody. There is no doubt that pink shoes can be polarizing, especially with such an iconic silhouette. Regardless, there are certainly a few people out there who would be excited to grab these if they were made available.
