Jordan Announces Release Date For Drake’s OVO Edition Kicks

Jordan Brand took to its Twitter account on Thursday to announce the much-anticapated release date for Drake’s Air Jordan OVO edition sneakers. The Air Jordan 10 OVO is set to hit stores on Sept. 12.

This isn’t the first time fans will be seeing the sneaker. When Drake signed with Nike in 2013, the rapper posted his OVO x Jordan 10 sample pack on Instagram.

Flash-forward to April 2015, when the OVO x Air Jordan 10 Retro was released at an OVO pop-up store in Los Angeles to much surprise. The kicks were available in both black and white, featuring stingray-leather detailing and golden accents, and were reportedly sold for $225.

Drake has now confirmed the global release date with an Instagram post showing the white/metallic gold-white color way of the sneaker as an ad, complete with the OVO owl and Jumpman logo.
