News circulating the rumor mill yesterday pointed to an unexpected collaboration between Jordan Brand and Roger Federer‘s camp. Said rumors have been given life as the Swoosh unveils the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan – the latest in a string of cross-disciplinary releases between Jordan and Nike sport. The sneaker takes visual cues from the Air Jordan 3, while taking technological pointers from Federer’s own Zoom Vapor 9.5, altogether resulting in a collaboration that has the heritage of victory ingrained in its very sole. As such, the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 features form-fitting Dynamic Fit at the upper, which works in combination with Phylon and an Air Max sole unit to provide maximum comfort. Design clues such as the world-renowned ‘elephant’ print, a white/cement leather upper, and a Jumpman-stitched tongue all point towards Jordan’s classic third sneaker from 1988. Look for this release to hit specialty Nike retailers like NikeLab and NikeTown New York beginning August 27.
