Manilla-based basketball boutique TITAN has teamed with Jordan Brand for an electric Air Jordan 23 collaboration. The purveyor of Filipino hoop culture is no stranger to co-created Nike Inc. silhouettes — it’s worked with Nike Basketball on no less than four of LeBron James‘s signature sneakers — but this marks its first-ever Air Jordan.

Uppers are built almost entirely of supple, premium leather. Toeboxes and tongues are dressed in white, perforated to show a bright red underlay. Quarter panels use black leather, and are covered in boldly-embroidered lightning bolts for a nod to TITAN’s signature logo. A gold TITAN medallion is placed on the outside of each tongue while the inside is stamped with Michael Jordan‘s thumbprint. Collars use a soft mesh for comfort and heel tabs/quarters alike are secured with red stitching.

Down below, milky molded TPU midsoles reach up onto the forefoot for structure and are sharply shaped towards the heel. In an interesting twist, the medial heel offers a style code that coordinates with the OG Air Jordan 23 “Black Stealth,” indicating that this may be the TITAN team’s homage to that shoe. This graphic is surrounded with “Titan PH” hits and stars, Zoom Air is loaded in forefoot and heel alike for cushioning and a thumbprint traction pattern on the white outsole rounds off the look.

An official release date for the TITAN x Air Jordan 23 has yet to be revealed, but more info is likely to surface soon.

Elsewhere, Nike’s Dunk High “Varsity Maize” is set to return this holiday season.
