The Air Jordan 15 is set to return in 2016. The sneaker will retro this month via a limited edition collaboration centered around Kubo and the Two Strings, a movie from animation studio Laika that opens in August.

What's the connection between the film and Jordan Brand? Laika is owned by Nike co-founder and chairman Phil Knight and run by his son Travis. The studio has previously collaborated with Nike for high-profile releases like the Coraline Dunks and the Paranorman Foamposites.

The shoe was introduced via the below teaser video from Complex.
