Ari Gold, Vincent Chase, E, Turtle and Johnny Drama have all returned for the “Entourage” movie, and to commemorate the arrival of the hit HBO show to the big screen, Jordan Brand has launched a special-edition sneaker to tie in with the opening of the film.
Producer Mark Wahlberg attended the L.A. premiere of “Entourage” Monday night in a casual ensemble, bringing out the Jordan x “Entourage” collaboration kicks for the first time.
The “Entourage” sneakers are Jordan CP3.VIII AE — Chris Paul’s signature model — featuring a gray colorway, with the cast embroidered on the tongue in gold and the “Entourage” logo in back.

Cast member Jerry Ferrara (Turtle) was extremely excited about the Jordan release. Throughout the series, the boys established their own shoe styles, with Turtle taking the lead as the show’s sneakerhead. He’s been seen on- and off-screen rocking all kinds of Nike styles and Air Jordans.
Nike’s Air Force 1 Low white-on-white sneaker was the most-worn style throughout the show’s eight seasons. To see what brands were used in the film, FN recently caught up with the movie’s costume designer, Olivia Miles, to talk on-set shoes.

She said,”I used Gucci on Ari, and I like using John Varvatos on Adrian [Vince]. Turtle is in Air Jordans. Sneakerheads will enjoy seeing what he has on his feet. I also included Gucci, Louboutin, Giuseppe Zanotti, Fiorentini & Baker, McQueen for Puma and Frye [on the cast].”
