This weekend, Chicago will host the 69th NBA All-Star Game. The city is the home of many basketball legacies, including Michael Jordan, and is setting up for a weekend full of activities and drops that pay homage to some of the sports’s most storied sneaker brands. True to form, StockX is celebrating by giving you access to the most anticipated releases of the week.
First up, Chicago’s own Virgil Abloh cooked up a new Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 with see-through accents, taking the silhouette’s classic “Black Metallic” colorway and adding some of his signature deconstructed flair. With details like translucent textiles, strategically placed cutouts, the label’s notable Helvetica text and tonal plastic zip-tie, the shoe is a mash-up of all the expected design add-ons for anything Virgil touches. Not surprisingly, the shoe has some steam behind it already, selling an average price of $393 USD while trading at a massive 345% over MSRP.
Available on StockX already, the Air Jordan 3 “Red Cement (Nike Chi),” has been a hot commodity and is uncontested in the Jordan Brand legacy. This version plays on past AJ3 designs, using elephant print and tumbled leathers over a vibrant red tone and a heel emblem that reads “Nike CHI” instead of Nike Air, marking the weekend’s festivities. The Jordan 3 “Red Cement” has sold 834 times on StockX already at an average sale price of $306.
Virgil isn’t the only one from Kanye’s Chicago crew to be showing some love this All-Star Weekend as streetwear designer Don C has been tapped by Nike for another collaboration. This time around, Don C opted for the Air Jordan 1 silhouette, placing coats of blue and red onto the midsole, throat and heel branding, with a silky smooth backdrop. The Nike Air Force 1 x “Just Don” is currently going for $1,251 USD on StockX.
The Air Jordan 1 “UNC TO Chicago” is also releasing, featuring a dark powder blue, red, black leather and white colorway that pays homage to MJ’s journey from University of North Carolina to his professional career with the Chicago Bulls. Already amassing 1,327 sales on StockX, the sneaker is trading at a rather impressive 47.1% over MSRP.
Finally, fragment design’s Hiroshi Fujiwara has applied his special touch to a combination of silhouettes, pairing both the 1984 white/red Air Ship PE with an all white and red Air Jordan 1 High colorway complete with its OG style hangtag. The Air Jordan “New Beginnings” Pack is selling at a whopping average sale price of $1,171, which is 328% over MSRP.
Head over to StockX now to secure the Off-White™ Air Jordan 5, Air Jordan 3 “Red Cement (Nike Chi),” Nike Air Force 1 x “Just Don”, Air Jordan 1 OG “UNC TO Chicago” and Air Jordan “New Beginnings” Pack ahead of NBA All-Star Weekend 2020.
