Take an Official Look at the Rui Hachimura x Air Jordan 36 "Global Game"
Paying homage to Hachimura’s Japanese roots.
Following the release of an Air Jordan 8 earlier last winter, Washington Wizards star Rui Hachimura now reveals another similarly-themed collaboration with Jordan Brand, the Air Jordan 36 “Global Games.” The upcoming performance pairs continue to pay homage to Hachimura’s Japanese roots, arriving in a dried clay works-like makeup with bright red piping accents and Kanji text. Pull tabs on the tongue arrive in a traditional gridded design, featuring mismatched Jumpman and Hachimura’s samurai logos, which were designed by his mother in honor of Hachimura’s family name.
Insoles and bottoms display cherry blossom and mountain range artwork with the addition of the occasional basketball, and additional red stitching details are spread across the uppers. A cushioned sole unit, featuring an Eclipse Plate 3.0 and translucent Air Zoom outsoles complete the design. The pairs arrive in a sleek brushed black shoebox featuring ukiyo-e-style artworks of Rui Hachimura dunking over defenders.
Take an official look at the Rui Hachimura x Air Jordan 36 “Global Game’ above and expect the pairs to release at the Nike website and select retailers on May 23 for $195 USD.
