Leading up to the Olympic Games is the World Basketball Festival – a grandiose three-city tour that will features the world’s best playing the world’s most exciting sport. Jordan Brand has placed a special focus on two models that occupy the opposite ends of the Jordan spectrum – the original Air Jordan 1, and the freshly designed Jordan Super Fly. This unique pairing will be Jordan Brand’s focus for each stop of the World Basketball Festival, which begins in Las Vegas, followed by Washington D.C., and concludes in Barcelona.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High and Super Fly ‘Las Vegas‘ is designed with early Vegas performers in mind, who wore black satin jackets and satin linings, while the ‘Dress Blues‘ commemorate the uniform and medals of decorated officers of the Armed Forces. The third and final set is a tribute to the 1992 Dream Team in a colorway inspired by a famous painting of a Spanish Bullfighter. The ‘Las Vegas’, ‘Dress Blues’, and ‘Barcelona‘ will release on three consecutive Saturday weekends beginning this Saturday with the ‘Las Vegas’, so continue on for a detailed look at the entire Jordan Brand World Basketball Festival Pack and let us know which of the three city-colorways you like best!
Vegas 1s are a go, the rest are ok. There has been way worse releases that get more love than these, I'm kind of surprised.
I like those Super Flys tbh. I like the Las Vegas Super Flys the most. Jordans have came a long way from the 1 next to the Super Fly.
