Jordan Brand Has Unveiled The Complete “Space Jam” 20th Anniversary Apparel & Footwear Collection

Space Jam is the only the film in history that managed to bring together basketball athletes and cartoon characters, alongside Bill Murray and Wayne Newman. As sneakerheads must be aware by now, this year Space Jam celebrates its 20th anniversary. Despite the rumors that a sequel is in the works, this is apparently not the case.Joe Pytka, who directed original film, seems to believe that a Space Jam sequel will not work. Perhaps Space Jam 2 will never be produced, but the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” is certainly returning. In fact, Jordan Brand has even unveiled the entire “Space Jam” Collection.

air-jordan-11-space-jam-insertAs sneakerheads know, one of the biggest Air Jordan releases of 2016 is a part of this collection. The official debut of Space Jam took place back on November 15th, 1996. It did not take long for the film to become a pop-culture phenomenon, courtesy of which the 90s generation became familiar with the basketball culture and the sport itself. Considering that Michael Jordan had starred in the lead role, it makes perfect sense for Jordan Brand to celebrate the iconic film’s 20th anniversary. Alongside the Air Jordan 11 that appeared in the film, the highlights of the collection include the Air Jordan 9 “Kobe” and a Space Jam-themed Air Jordan 31 dressed up in Black, Concord and White.

It had already been revealed that this collection would include Space Jam-themed colorways of the Air Jordan 1 Ultra High, Jordan CP3.X and the Jordan Ultra.Fly. However, the latest reveal is that a special Space Jam edition iteration of the Air Jordan 1 is also a part of this collection. Along with the collection, Jordan Brand also revealed a special apparel collection. The apparel has apparently been designed drawing inspiration from the Looney Tune Squad and the Monstars that starred in the film. Along with being dressed up in modernized variation of the classic Black and Concord color scheme, iconic graphics can also be spotted on the apparel.
