All-Star 2020: Jordan Brand
After 32 years, the All-Star Game is back in Chicago. The last time it was held in the Windy City, MJ ruled the court, won the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday and the MVP plum on Sunday. While its been decades since MJ last balled in Chi-Town, Jordan is still synonymous to the city and they’ve got a couple of special releases slated for the All-Star Weekend. Continuing the ‘Unite’ theme, here’s a couple worth picking up:
Air Jordan XXXIV SE
It may look like the initial colorway, but Jordan Brand brings out the Air Jordan XXXIV, now as an SE release. The Special Edition variant now features a quilted shroud that can be zipped through the side, concealing the laces for a clean, premium look.
The Air Jordan XXXIV SE retails for Php 8,545 and will be available at Titan.
Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 ‘LA Born’
With Russell Westbrook playing in his 9th All-Star Game this coming weekend, expect to see Mr. Why Not? wear something new for the big game. Going for a more ’90s color scheme, the new colorway mixes in Jordan lore and Westbrook’s hometown in LA. It may look busy, just like Russ on the court.
The Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 ‘LA Born’ retails for Php 6,745 and will be available at Titan.
Air Jordan III ‘Retro U’
As mentioned, MJ took to the court back in ’88 when the All-Star Game was last played in Chicago. Jordan rocked the Air Jordan III that weekend, wearing the White Cement during the Slam Dunk Contest and debuted the Black Cement during the All-Star Game. In celebration of Chicago, a flood-red variant of the Air Jordan III makes its way this weekend. While Chicagoans get the Nike CHI edition, we will be getting the Air Jordan III with the Nike Air brandinig this Saturday.
The Air Jordan III SE ‘Retro U’ retails for Php 9,895 and will be available at Titan and Nike Forum on Saturday, February 15. The shoe will also be available in GS (Php 6,295), PS (Php 3,795) and Toddler (Php 2,795) sizing.
From Chapel Hill to Chicago. Most of us grew up watching MJ win it all during his stint with the Chicago Bulls. Actually, Jordan first rose to fame while he was playing college hoops in North Carolina, as he made the winning basket to win the National Title back in ’82. Commemorating these two stints, the Air Jordan I ‘UNC to CHI’ is one worth picking up. The black leather is complemented by the Powder Blue and University Red hits on the toe and heel.
The Women’s Air Jordan I Retro High ‘UNC to CHI’ retails for Php 8,095 and will be available at Nike.com/ph on Friday, February 14. Stay tuned for a local release at Titan and Nike Park.
