None of those logos match the logo on the paper in the supposed pic of the toe and heel of the shoe above. Something is off. And Westbrook isn't on team USA this year.

From what I've seen (outside of NT) you hit the nail on the head.. This release will take us full circle back to the Team Jordan days when takedown models of the leather-based flagship models were a thing.

MTM maybe but don't expect that level of quality.

I've said it earlier in this thread, and I'll say it again. Mark my words, there is going to be some sort of 3-D printing on this shoe...If that above mag ad is real, it has the bird bone reference in it...compare that to 3-D printed shoes so far...

what are you talking about??
post #252 of 7029
I have a feeling these are going to be hideous... The casual and performance market for basketball have to be seperated nowadays-new tech just doesn't mesh well with casual wear.

Someone make this Monday great and post a picture. It's time...
post #254 of 7029

Actual reveal on tv is the 5th. So we'll see them on Jimmy Butlers feet then. I'm guessing full pics leak in the next week or two. Probably after the Quai XXX release. However, Today or any time this week would be great!

 

I'm curious as to how Jordan Brand is going to present the shoe? They've had a presentation the last 3 sigs and no word on an upcoming presentation as of yet.

Based on an earlier post, they are also scheduled to release on 8/5 in the "Rio" color way.

^Agreed. Honestly. Make MJ the focus of the campaign (along side other team Jordan members) and finally put him in the damn shoe again in a dope commercial. Shoe will sell, no matter how it looks.

^ I asked Howard White about that same thing, in general terms, and at this point MJ wants the athletes to be the faces of the brand. He wants to become what Phil was to Nike. That's part of their pitch when they meet with athletes. Which makes sense because most athletes don't want to be in another man's shadow. It may not sound logical, because it's still Michael Jordan. And with the new rule the NBA put on MJ, being an owner, he can't be commercializing with NBA athletes because he'll be accused of tampering. The brand at is $3.6Bil grossed this year with the current plan they're using. It's not going to change.

It's obvious that the Olympics provide great stage for free advertising and without Russ participating, Jimmy,next best thing so they don't miss the chance. Very odd that 2 listed CWs for Olympics and then 2 more listed for September drop?

Jeter just signed a new deal with JB as captain of Baseball, he will further his line and recruit baseball players. Expect JB to do the same with athletes in other branches of sport.
