An entity that caters to the basketball and sneaker communities out in Manila, Philippines, TITAN is further advancing its collaborative footwear repertoire with a brand new project atop the Air Jordan 23. This won’t be the retailer’s first rodeo in terms of collaborations as it has previously linked with Nike for specially-made LeBron 16 Low “Agimat” and LeBron 17 Low colorways, but it does serve as the birth of a partnership Jordan Brand.

If you didn’t already know, hoops is more than just a game across the Philippines islands, and “die hard” isn’t even enough to describe the fiery passion that their people possess for the sport. So to honor this deep-rooted love, TITAN comes in and reimagines the 2008 Jordan silhouette with electrifying flair.

Side paneling, which we’re accustomed to seeing styled with argyle patterns, has instead been backdropped with tumbled black leathers and enlivened with bright yellow lightning bolt-shaped stitchings to nod to the Manila boutique’s signature logo. To balance this out, white leathers form the tongues and toe boxes both of which are poked out with dotted red windows. Additionally, the branding matches across the footbeds and tongues as each splits between gilded TITAN badges on the right foot and the Jumpman insignia on the left side.

Milky overlays fall along the forefoot which eventually bleed down to make up the midsole, and come strung together with white/translucent treading. Additionally, “TITAN PH” branding is printed across the medial heel alongside a trio of stars and the “318376-001” which interestingly enough is the style code for the original Air Jordan 23 “Stealth” colorway.

A release date is still unknown, but anticipate TITAN and Nike to drop these in the coming weeks.

For more news on upcoming J’s, official photos of the 2021 Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Chinese New Year” have surfaced.
