As every year, Jordan Brand’s Holiday lineup of Air Jordan releases 2018 is going to be quite extravagant and intriguing. Back in April, Sneaker Info. (@pinoe77) revealed that Jordan Brand has been work on an NBA Pack, which will be making its retail debut during the 2018 Holiday Season. According to Sneaker Info, this pack would include an Air Jordan 6 inspired by Jimmy Butler, an Air Jordan 8 inspired by Kawhi Leonard, an Air Jordan 10 inspired by Russell Westbrook, and an Air Jordan 12 inspired by Chris Paul. Unlike at the time, a photo of the Air Jordan 6 from this “NBA” Pack has finally been leaked.
Jimmy Butler Might Depart From The Timberwolves Within A Year
Apparently, Jimmy Butler is currently one of the top NBA players that the Los Angeles Lakers have their eyes set on and are targeting. It seems Jimmy is not content and very unhappy with playing as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, even though two of his teammates happen to be All-Star caliber players. Jimmy’s contract with the Timberwolves expires within a year and it is likely that he will be departing from the team when that happens. When the Timberwolves trade Butler, they will likely be expecting to end up with a player of a similar caliber, who will prove to be an equally valuable two-way player.
The Air Jordan 6 “Jimmy Butler” From The “NBA” Pack
Even though the photo at the top of the left shoe, you can still see what the Air Jordan 6 “Jimmy Butler” is going to look like. Despite the likelihood of Jimmy departing from his current team, the color scheme of this iteration is clearly inspired by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Hence, it is dressed up in a combination of Court Blue and Difussed Blue. In the above photo, at least, neither Jimmy Butler’s logo nor any Timberwolves branding can be spotted, although its lace locks and tongues do feature the “Jumpman.” You can expect more photos of this sneaker to emerge before it joins upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018.
You may also expect the rest of the sneakers from Jordan Brand’s “NBA” Pack to be unveiled in the coming months. As for this Air Jordan 6 “Jimmy Butler,” it will reportedly hit the shelves at some point in October 2018 and will retail at a price of $190.
