Very rarely will Jordan Brand collaborate outside it’s own boundaries. And when it does, history tells us that it happens in small quantities. For example, the most recent collaboration that involved Jordan Brand featured UK artist Dave White, and what they created was limited to just 23 pairs! Last October featured Vashtie Kola and the Air Jordan II for kids, and even rapper Eminem had his hand on some Air Jordans as well. One of the most (if not the most) Air Jordan collaborations was with West Coast-based Undefeated, and even then, the shoes weren’t even released. We have news of an upcoming Air Jordan collaboration with Walter’s, a prominent sneaker shop based in Atlanta, GA that has been in the game for over six decades; using the Air Jordan V, Jordan Brand will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Walter’s, immortalizing the sneaker staple with a special colorway inspired by the store’s original colors. What to expect? A black/yellow colorway and an extremely limited run. Take a look at the preview shots below and let us know what you think. via AGS.
