One of the items of interest at the Jordan Brand Showcase at Footaction in Culver City was the Air Jordan III ‘Skullcandy Pack’ which included a pair of Air Jordan III White/Cement and elephant print Skullcandy headphones in Elephant Print packaged in a sweet set-up fit for both items. The slide-out black/red box features a Jumpman window, sponge-lined with hollowed-out arrangements to perfectly fit the Jordans and the Aviator headphones. Just twenty-three individually numbered packages were up for grabs so you already know how rare this set-up is, and Jordan Brand partnership with the audio-equipment maker is just one example of how Jordan Brand is spreading its wings beyond the realm of footwear, but into pop-culture brands and trends.

With the Air Jordan 2011 debuting during this 2011 NBA All Star weekend, we knew to expect some special releases and maybe even suprise colorways during the ASG, but these two deluxe packages come as a huge surprise. Then again, when Jordan Brand showed off its ‘For the Love of the Game’ collection back in August, both Air Jordans VII and IX released in heartsketball-embroidered editions complete with Skull Candy headphones. And now the same has happened with the Skull Candy x Air Jordan 2011 and AJIII Retro, both of which will release in impressive special packages, come complete with matching Skull Candy Aviator headphones you won’t be able to get anywhere else. The AJ2011 joints feature mismatched cans to mimic the 2011′s Quick/Explosive interchangable insoles, while the ‘White Cement’ Air Jordan 3 version goes for a more obvious look, adding black Elephant print to a white base. Click through to see both pairs, let us know which one’s better and for those of you in the SoCal area, look for these to hit Footaction at Westfield Culver City where a tiny run of each will be available Saturday at 10am.
