Jordan Brand All-Star Game Jerseys And New Shoe Line Revealed

    Jordan Brand has been killing it over the years, from the emergence of its elite Jordan Brand Classic High School All-American Game to its bread and butter, which has always been having the hottest sneakers in the game. The brand has truly revolutionized the sneaker/fashion industry by collaborating with top artists, tastemakers, influencers and entertainers to make some of the most soul-captivating kicks we’ve seen.  

    As NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles quickly approaches, Jordan Brand hosted the Future of Flight event at the CBS Studios in Los Angeles to unveil All-Star Game jerseys, several highly-anticipated sneakers such as an Air Jordan III based off Tinker Hatfields original sketch, and a groundbreaking womens line.

He went behind the scenes at the Jordan Brand where they unveiled new shoes (including their women’s line) and the All-Star jerseys.

    He posted some of them on Twitter.

    Westbrook definitely has some lit footwear and if he keeps dropping 46 as he did on Wednesday night in a 121-112 thrashing of Washington, then another MVP could be coming his way as well.

    After all, the entire Nike movement was built on the celebrity of Jordan who stands alone as a black entrepreneur. Spike Lee was a part of MJ’s early marketing explosion in the early ’90s.
