Among the many limited-edition sneakers released this weekend by top brands such as Adidas, Jordan and Nike, the pair you’re about to see is perhaps the rarest of them all.
In collaboration with tattoo artist Steve Wiebe, Jordan Brand released a very limited collection yesterday 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 in this collection. The shoes take inspiration from the Chicago Bulls, accentuating the shades of red to the max with a glossy upper accented in black on the striped and checkerboard lining, outsole and tongue detailing. This pair stands out from a standard Air Jordan 10 with its crinkle leather texture paired with smooth suede. And the biggest caveat of all is the availability of the sneaker: there are only 230 individually numbered pairs available worldwide.
Elsewhere, the collaboration’s Jordan Generation and Super.Fly 2017 sneakers combine black uppers with red accents and a similar texture.
Wiebe is a Canadian tattoo artist whose work is especially popular with NBA players. Stars such as Kevin Durant, Brandon Jennings and DeAndre Jordan are known to sport his designs.
This collection was released exclusively at Foot Locker House of Hoops stores in New York and Los Angeles. A small number of pairs of Air Jordan 10s have since found their way to eBaywhere they are listed for prices ranging from $788 to $7,000.
