Jordan Brand And Skull Candy Mix It Up

A limited edition pack for the World Basketball Festival.

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

As a key component of the upcoming World Basketball Festival in NYC, Jordan Brand has announced another WBF-specific retail release for this week.

Starting Thursday, August 12, Harlem sneaker store Atmos will transformed into a Jordan-only pop up store. Atmos, along with the House of Hoops in Harlem will be carrying some exclusive product.

One of those exclusive products is a collaboration between JB and Skull Candy. The two have come up with the Air Jordan IX retro x Skull Candy “For the Love of the Game” pack (see pics below).

A few notes on the shoes from JB:

- Re-engineered classic inspired by Japanese influences and the global reach of Michael Jordan’s legendary status.

- The University Blue colorway represents MJ’s roots and the Brand’s North Carolina heritage

- The heart design on the shoe reflects Jordan’s motto, “For The Love Of The Game”

- The sole features multi-lingual details that represent the globalization of the Brand

And just to keep it limited, there have only been 23 packs made.

    That makes the shoes seem infinitely better.

    Just to clarify here guys, I think the shoe is getting a general release. This pairing (the shoes, the headphones and the chest-looking box) is limited to 23 pairs.

  • ai come back

    yo chris how bout the skull candy headphones will they be in general release too?

  • IndyJump

    Just heard from skull candy that the headphones will NOT be released outside the pack

  • http://slamonline.com Chris O’Leary

    The headphones were made specifically for this project, so no general release there.

    Just got word from JB that the shoes will only be available through the packs. That means there are only gonna be 23 of these shoes out there. Yikes.

    Maybe it’s just me, but if you look at Nike.com, and the United Kingdom version, they appear to be selling those Jordans, in that colourway, for £95 (I’d guess that’s around $135)…..

  • chrisisretarded

    yo chris, who in JB gave you the word ? because you are an idiot for beleiving them and they are even more dumb for telling you that….
