After much speculations and leaked images, Jordan Brand finally unveiled its so-called “Project X,” a limited edition footwear pack featuring artworks from the popular manga/anime Slam Dunk. Serialized on Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump between 1990 and 1996, the basketball-themed manga by writer/illustrator Takehiko Inoue centered on Hanamichi Sakuragi, a high school misfit who found his talent for basketball through trials and tribulations. Later as an anime series by Toei Animation, the relatable plot line and basketball’s growing popularity across Asia at the time made Slam Dunk one of the best know title out there.
To be available as the Air Jordan 6 and Jordan Super.Fly 3, the Slam Dunk x Jordan Brand collection will be available at select Jordan retailers starting this Saturday, October 18th.
Release Date: 10/18/2014 (Saturday)
