A few weeks back, President Obama visited Nike‘s headquarters for a talk on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, in support of the Trade Promotion Authority. During the controversial and much-talked about event, it was revealed that Obama had received the first two pairs of a custom Air Jordan I and Jordan XXIX. The pair is a part of the Nike MTM pack, which Nike is releasing in June to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan franchise. MTM stands for the three names that took part in designing the shoes — Nike CEO Mark Parker, designer Tinker Hatfield and of course, Michael Jordan. Outfitting the Air Jordan I, which was first released in 1985, is the innovative FlyWeave construction in black and gray. The second pair in the pack is the latest Jordan model, the XXIX, which was released last fall, and is reimagined in all-over black leather.
The two-pair MTM pack release will retail for $700 USD, and will be available June 13 at NikeLab P75 in Paris and June 26 at jordan.com, and select Jordan retailers.
