Although the Air Jordan XV sneakers inspired by the upcoming film “Kubo and the Two Strings” are a limited edition, there is a way to get a pair — and it’s for a good cause.
Ebay for Charity is auctioning 220 pairs, with all proceeds benefiting Matthew McConaughey’s Just Keep Livin’ Foundation, which supports high school students. McConaughey is one of the film’s stars.
For the collaboration, Jordan worked with animation company Laika and Nike VP of Creative Concepts and famed Air Jordan designer Tinker Hatfield to create the mismatched version of the Air Jordan XV.
The shoes won’t be available for public purchase. A limited number of pairs can be won through the online game Beast Battle on KuboTheMovie.com, with pairs being awarded to the 250 highest-ranked players.
If you’re not looking to play the game, the auction could be the way to go. There are 10 pairs of the sneakers signed by McConaughey, 10 signed by Hatfield and 200 unsigned pairs up for grabs.
The auction runs through Aug. 18. Currently the highest bid is nearly $2,000 for a size 10 pair signed by Hatfield.
“I am proud to be able to tie together two projects that mean a lot to me: my charity, the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation and my newest film, Kubo,” said McConaughey. “We are auctioning off 220 pairs of Kubo branded Air Jordans to benefit JKL and empower the kids involved to reach for a better future.”
