Only a couple weeks out from its debut, Space Jam: A New Legacy is poised to be the Summer’s biggest hit. And with brands like Nike and Converse in its corner, the film will certainly not go under the radar. Both brands, through their line-up of commemorative footwear, are doing the heavy lifting in terms of marketing, thrusting both iconic characters and insignia atop classics like the Chuck Taylor.
Two iterations of the silhouette will soon hit the shelves. The Chuck 70 variant embodies the Tune Squad energy, applying the team’s logo atop the side in thick, textural chenille. And in further nod to their jerseys, the circular orange graphic sits behind, a bright addition to an otherwise colorless construction. In contrast, the standard Chuck Taylor is far more playful, replete with depictions of Daffy Duck, Lola Bunny, the Tasmanian Devil, and more. Computer chip inspired prints, then, sit behind, adding a futuristic touch to the black base.
See the official images of both pairs below. On July 16th, the two will accompany the rest of the Space Jam: A New Legacy collection via Nike SNKRS.
In other news, there are a ton of other Nike Space Jam shoes on the way.
