NBA All-Star weekend has turned into one of the biggest events of the year when it comes to big sneaker releases. Thanks to @zsneakerheadz, there is now word on at least one of the pairs that will reportedly be hitting retailers next February.
While images have yet to surface, initial mock-ups suggest that the host city of Chicago will be celebrated with an appropriately-colored Air Jordan 3. The pair is rumored to sport an all-red upper, traditional elephant print paneling, and black details. The color scheme obviously evokes thoughts of the Windy City's NBA franchise, the Bulls.
Given Michael Jordan's connection to Chicago, don't expect this to be the only special pair Jordan Brand will be releasing next year. Stay tuned as more details become available regarding the "Chicago All-Star" Air Jordan 3.
