Inspired by Michael Jordan's famous quote, "By the time you see me coming, it's too late," the Jordan Brand will launch a "Stealth" collection for All-Star 2013. The pack consists of the Melo M9, CP3.VI, Retro 1 Mid, Retro 3 and Air Jordan XX8.
The All-Star Collection will be sold in two waves scheduled for February and February 16. First, the Melo M9 and CP3.VI, each featuring integrated UV ink throughout the upper that illuminates when viewed under black light. The Melo M9 is supported by a glowing outsole, while the CP3.VI's Podulon midsole illuminates when exposed to black light.
On February 16, the Air Jordan Retro 1 Mid and Retro 3 will drop with cues aligned to the Air Jordan XX8. The Retro 1 features a glowing outsole, laces and Jumpman logo when exposed to black light. A XX8-inspired electric green outsole and collar appear on the Retro 3.
The Air Jordan XX8 in Black/White/Electric Green will be worn by Russell Westbrook in the All-Star Game and also released to the public on February 16.
To recap, the Melo M9 ($145) and CP3.VI ($125) release Thursday, February 14.
Air Jordan XX8 ($250), Retro 1 Mid ($110) and Retro 3 ($160) follow on Saturday, February 16.
