The Jordan Brand and its roster of athletes are celebrating the holiday season with flight-inspired exclusive footwear for Christmas Day.
Visual elements on each shoe are inspired by air travel, linked to the spirit of traveling with family during the holiday season. Flight patterns and circular radar imagery representing busy air traffic control stations adorn the uppers. Bright colors and reflective materials are complemented by dark accents and speckled outsoles.
One Christmas Day, Russell Westbrook (in the Air Jordan XX8 SE) squares off against Carmelo Anthony (Melo M10) in New York City. On the west coast, Chris Paul (CP3.7) and Blake Griffin (Super.Fly 2) will compete in the day's final game.
Though treated to graphic designs that help them stand out on the court, the shoes are built with premium materials and equipped with elite performance technology like Flight Plate and Dynamic Fit.
The Jordan Brand's 'Flight Before Christmas' Pack launches next Tuesday, December 24 at nike.com.
