Jordan Brand 2013 All-Star Collection

February 5, 2013 | 5

Jordan_2013_AllStar_Ftwr_GROUP_v1_large“By the time you see me coming, it’s too late.” Micheal Jordan’s approach to the game of basketball is similar to his quote. It seem like MJ was always a few steps ahead of everyone else. Jordan Brand’s 2013 All-Star Collection is inspired by MJ’s stealthy style of play. The collection consists of the AJ1, AJ3, Melo M9, and the CP3.VI models respectively.

Each model is inspired by the latest Air Jordan XX8 night vision-inspired look. Some of the models feature integrated UV ink throughout the upper that illuminates under black light. Check out the official images of the Jordan Brand 2013 All-Star Collection and check out the release dates on each model below.

Michael Jordan once said: “By the time you see me coming, it’s too late.” His quote, and the way he approached the game of basketball throughout his career, inspired the stealth aesthetic featured in the Air Jordan XX8. The special Jordan pack, comprised of an Air Jordan I, Air Jordan III, Jordan MELO M9 and Jordan CP3.VI, takes its color cues from the Air Jordan XX8′s night vision-inspired look.

The pack will be sold in two separate offerings scheduled for February 14 and 16. The first two shoes available in the pack will be the Jordan MELO M9 and the Jordan CP3.VI. Both products will feature integrated UV ink throughout the upper that illuminates when viewed under black light. The MELO M9 features a glowing outsole while the CP3.VI features an illuminated Podulon midsole when exposed to black light. The offering on February 16 will feature an Air Jordan I Retro Mid and an Air Jordan III that will include the color cues aligned to the Air Jordan XX8. The Air Jordan I, which was first released in 1985, features a glowing outsole, laces and Jumpman logo when exposed to black light. The Air Jordan III, which debuted in 1988, features an electric green outsole and collar that draw inspiration directly from the color scheme of the Air Jordan XX8. The pinnacle performance product of the weekend will be the Air Jordan XX8. Jordan Brand athlete Russell Westbrook debuted the latest iteration of the classic Jordan line on December 4. Consumers will have the opportunity to purchase two different color combinations of the Air Jordan XX8, including the black/white/electric green version (pictured above).
