As always, Jordan Brand keeps it fresh with some sick player exclusives. This time, it’s for one of their two Major League Baseball sponsored athletes Andruw Jones of the Atlanta Braves, the other being CC Sabathia who almost took his Brewers to the World Series. The Player Exclusive cleats for Jones are designed in the Air Jordan III, with spikes on the bottom instead of a bunch of rubber. The cleats feature all the Air Jordan III features, with the elephant print around the lower, a blue patent leather strip that goes until you get the rest of the upper which looks like it features some black suede and nubuck with some red leather around the laces and the heel. The cleats also feature a glove patch on the top of the tongue and the side of the heel. The back of the shoe features the usual rubber tab in red with the Jumpman logo (not the ultra-classic Nike Air logo seen in the ’90s. The shoe is topped off with some glittery blue, patent leather around the ankle and heel on the top of the upper. The whole shoe is in the braves colors. Clearly the style would be envied by any Braves fan or Jordan head.
As usual, Jordan Brand keeps the love rolling out for their sponsored athletes. They keep pumping out the heat to keep the Jordan Brand, and Michael’s legacy alive and well. The only pair available right now is a game worn pair signed by the man from 2007. Unfortunately, these will not make it to your retail shelves, but as usual you can always pick them up on ebay.
