NEW YORK CITY: I recently sat down with Michael B. Jordan to talk to him – and an uproarious Jamie Foxx – about their incredible new film Just Mercy. What struck me about Jordan was his sense of style; cool, considered. So when I saw him again this week at Coach’s Fall 2020 show – a brand of which he is an ambassador – I remember thinking how right designer Stuart Vevers got it.
In a coated burgundy trench, the 32-year-old actor and producer was all smiles as he sat front row next to Megan Thee Stallion on New York’s Upper West Side. He recently starred in the brand’s CitySole campaign and admitted on Wednesday that he actually owns 300 pairs of sneakers. “I have a ton of sneakers that I rotate in and out of my closet — and I donate. If you’re a size 10 or 10.5, you’ll probably get a pair of my sneakers,” he told PEOPLE.
“Coach is a New York brand, and I’m from the Northeast and the big city has always been intriguing to me,” he continued. “They are great collaborators. Anybody that’s ever been involved with the brand that I’ve had the opportunity to work with has been a true artist. It’s just been a great fit.”
You can now shop the same Coach CitySoles Jordan was wearing on Wednesday at the Fall 2020 show.
Built for the urban obstacle that is New York’s concrete pavements, these lightweight court sneakers are based on traditional basketball shoes and according to Coach, sit at the intersection of fashion and function.
