With NBA All-Star Weekend 2020 just weeks away, Jordan Brand and its cohorts are rolling out their plans for the multi-day festivities.
For Jordan Brand, it celebrates a return to the city that made Michael Jordan a star: Chicago. It's accented by a "Jordan Unite" collection inspired by the way basketball unites communities, as well as a handful of other styles.
Chicago themes are heavy here, seen on the OG-inspired Air Ship/Air Jordan 1 "New Beginnings" pack, as well as a "Red Cement" Air Jordan 3 (in both standard and Chicago-exclusive QS versions) and a women's-exclusive Air Jordan 1. Meanwhile, the "Racer Blue" Air Jordan 9 has also somehow snuck into the lineup, although it doesn't seem to fit the theme of the rest of the releases.
Aside from retro offerings, Jordan Brand is also going heavy on its performance footwear, which includes two colorways of Russell Westbrook's Why Not? Zer0.3—one in a '90s-inspired "LA Born" and a second "Jordan Unite" makeup—as well as two versions of the Air Jordan 34. The latter will drop in a white "Jordan Unite" colorway as well as an all-new shrouded SE version.
