Last month, the sneaker community was, for a moment, intertwined with American politics. President Barack Obama visited Nike’s headquarters in Beaverton to speak on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an agreement that hopes to open up domestic supply chains and improve stateside manufacturing. A juicy bit for sneakerheads included the purported one-off custom Air Jordan I and Jordan XX9. As it turns out, these releases represented the inaugural rollout of the MTM Pack – a special three-way collaboration between Michael Jordan, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker. Nike here surprises audiences by officially announcing the public release of the MTM Pack: comprised of cleverly reworked versions of the AJI and Jordan XX9.

The most obvious distinction of the pack are the flipped materials; the Air Jordan I is here outfitted with a breathable one-piece Flyweave upper, which is specially crafted to iterate the iconic toe box and paneling of the original. Elsewhere, the Jordan XX9 ditches Flyweave in favor of a supple leather upper, still retaining the FlightPlate technology that made its name on the court. Interested parties can raffle for either of these versions at the P75 Paris NikeLab location beginning June 13, with deliveries coming to other NikeLab doors in the near future.
