Of the numerous limited-edition sneakers releasing this weekend from top brands including Adidas, Jordan and Nike, the pair you’re about to see may be the rarest of them all.
In collaboration with tattoo artist Steve Wiebe, Jordan Brand yesterday released a highly limited collection featuring the Air Jordan 10 retro, Jordan Generation and Super.Fly 2017 models.
For serious sneakerheads, the Air Jordan 10 will likely be the key draw of this collection. The shoes take on a Chicago Bulls inspiration, dialing up the shades of red to the max with a bright upper accented with black on the sneaker’s signature striped and checkerboard liner, outsole and tongue details. Setting this pair apart from a standard Air Jordan 10 is its wrinkled leather texture, which is paired with a smooth suede. And the biggest caveat of all is the sneaker’s availability: there are only 230 individually numbered pairs available globally.
Elsewhere, the collaboration’s Jordan Generation and Super.Fly 2017 sneakers pair black uppers with red accents and a similar winkled texture.
Wiebe is a Canadian tattoo artist whose work is especially popular among NBA players. Stars such as Kevin Durant, Brandon Jennings and DeAndre Jordan have been known to sport his designs.
This collection was released exclusively at Foot Locker House of Hoops locations in New York and Los Angeles. A small number of Air Jordan 10 pairs have since found their way to eBay, where they’re listed for asking prices ranging from $788 to as high as $7,000.
