The Super Bowl was three days ago, but we still have Justin Timberlake’s halftime performance outfit engraved in our thoughts.
It was received differently by people on the internet, but we think it’s dapper in every angle. The singer paired a custom camouflage Stella McCartney suit with a pair of now sold out Nike Jordans collaboration featuring his name.

The Nike Air Jordan 3 JTH the artist debuted on the Super Bowl stage is the first of many sneaker colorways that were inspired by his latest album, Man of the Woods. It has an all-white leather body with the signature cement pattern in grey found on the mudguard and heel.
This shoe also has a different Swoosh compared to most Jordans. It has a 3M Swoosh just like legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield first imagined on the original AJ3 sketch, which never made it to the final shoe design. It’s also got a reflective Swoosh.
The outfit has a surprising mix of casual and formal sensibilities–and it definitely works. The suit has a traditional cut and silhouette, but it’s on the hems and prints that contemporary design takes over. Who knew Jordans would ever look good with a suit?
Do you think you’ll ever try this suit and sneaker combo?
