On Tuesday, the smear ads, junk mail and excessive e-mails will finally come to an end when we elect (or re-elect) the leader of the free world. Proving that any event can be turned into an opportunity to sell sneakers, the Jordan Brand is dropping an "Election Day" make-up of the Air Jordan Retro 1 High.
The "Election Day" Retro 1 High sports an obsidian nubuck upper with red elephant print on the toebox and heel. Sail handles the Wings and Swoosh logos, Jumpman branding on the heel and midsole. Linking the shoes to the election, the Democratic Donkey and Republican Elephant adorn the insoles.
Strangely, these won't officially hit retail until next Saturday, when half of the country will be pissed off and threatening to move to Canada.
