Although Brandblack is a relative newcomer to the athletic footwear world, it’s already releasing its third signature shoe for Los Angeles Clippers sharpshooter Jamal Crawford, the first athlete who signed with the brand.
The J.Crossover III is in stores now and retails for $160.
Not all retailers will have the same colorways of the shoe. Finish Line will exclusively have a black and red colorway stocked, and will also have a red colorway and a white colorway that will be on the shelves of other Brandblack retail partners. Other colorways of the shoes include natural and blue.
The shoe was designed with on-court performance in mind. It features the brand’s Force Vector technology, which uses a full-length thermo-plastic plate that creates a cushioned shoe with lateral stability and mid foot support. The shoe also features a removable support shroud that wraps around the outside of the shoe, designed to cradle the heel and ankle area, a fused thermoplastic urethane for aggressive cuts on the court, a light and strong ballistic nylon one-piece upper for a second skin feel, and a 4mm high density foam collar lining for ankle support.
The colorways will be dispersed to Brandblack’s retail partners as follows:
- Black and red – Exclusively launching at Finish Line
- Natural – Launching at Shoe Palace and Nice Kicks
- Red – Launching at Finish Line, Champs and Footaction
- White – Launching at Finish Line and Footaction
- Blue – Launching at Shoe Palace, Footaction and Nice Kicks
Brandblack has bolstered its roster of sponsored athletes since signing Crawford with the signings of Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson and Los Angeles Clippers baller Josh Smith.
