It looks like Jordan fever’s spreading, and I can’t say I’m all that mad.
Just in time for the release of our special Jordan issue, our friends over at Jordan Brand sent over some info about something special they’ve got brewing, too. In honor of the renewed buzz surrounding MJ thanks to his Hall of Fame induction on September 11, the brand which is his namesake is launching the Jordan Moments Collection. Sneakerheads, take notice.
Each of the three shoes in the collection marks a different part of Mike’s illustrious career. There’s The Beginning (left), in the form of the Air Jordan 1 (my favorite Jordans of all time), tweaked a bit from their original release. Next are The Championships (right), called Jordan 6 Rings, boasting elements from the signature shoes that he wore during his championship runs (Air Jordan VI, VII, VIII, XI, XII, XIII, and XIV). Finally, there’s The Future (below), the newest offering representative of where the brand is heading.
These exclusive joints all look very fresh (as you can see) and you’ll be able to cop ‘em for the right price on September 5. The Beginning will retail for a cool $125, while The Championships will go for $175 and The Future will sell for a round $200.
