Russell Westbrook's high school-inspired Air Jordan 10 is releasing soon, but it isn't coming alone. The split-colored Westbrook sneakers are part of a wider "Back to School" collection which also includes retros tied to Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul.
According to Jordan Brand, the three-shoe collection's inspiration is rooted in the off-season grind high school athletes know well. The retros in this pack lift their colors from each player's respective high school and will be released throughout the summer season.
Leading the way for the group is the aforementioned Westbrook-themed Air Jordan 10, which releases on Saturday, June 30 and is inspired by the colors of Leuzinger High School. This style combines a split of university red and hyper royal nylon—the first time this detail has been featured on the model—on a white and black leather upper. Inside, "Class of 2006" is printed on the left insole, with Westbrook's RW logo appearing on the right.

On Saturday, August 11, CP3 gets in on the action with his own Air Jordan 12. The olive-based sneaker mixes hits of sail, black, and metallic gold for a colorway inspired by North Carolina's West Forsyth High School. Instead of the Air Jordan 12's traditional leather build, Paul's make up uses nylon and suede. "Class of 2003" text fills in the left insole while the CP3 logo adorns the right side.

Last but not least is Melo's Air Jordan 13. This colorway is a nod to Virginia's Oak Hill Academy where Anthony sharpened his skills as a teenager. It uses black and university gold with red accents on an upper that combines leather with suede and nylon. Like the other sneakers in this pack, the left insole features a "Class of 2002" graphic and the right uses a Melo logo. Anthony's Air Jordan 13 drops Saturday, September 15.
