It has been more than one month since the 23 is Back readers and other Jordan heads had gotten a glimpse of the Air Jordan 6 “Slam Dunk” for the very first time. Apparently, more information has popped up about this release. Even though it was initially merely a speculation, Jordan Brand has confirmed that the “Slam Dunk” colorways of the Air Jordan 6 and the Jordan Super.Fly 3 will be released separately. One of the upcoming 2014 Jordan release dates have been decided for the “Slam Dunk” collection, which not only includes these two new jordans but also apparel too.
Jordan Brand’s intention behind the release of the “Slam Dunk” collection is the same as back when the Air Jordan “Brazil” pack was going to be released. Even back then, it had been speculated that the high-sought-after Air Jordan 6 “Brazil” would be paired with a new model. Coupled with those Air Jordan VI pairs, Jordan Brand had apparently been hoping to promote the Jordan CP3.VII “Brazil.”
However, as far as the appearance of the Jordan Super.Fly III “Slam Dunk” is concerned, it looks nothing like either of the “Brazil” pairs. A 3M upper is featured by this sneaker, which gets its inspiration from the popular Japanese manga, Slam Dunk. However, it must be kept in mind that color combination that the “Brazil” pack has been dressed in had only drawn in a limited number of sneaker heads. So, it can only be assumed that this “Slam Dunk” will also target select Jordan heads, especially those who happen to be otakus.
A red T-shirt is also included in this collection with a large, elephant-print number 10, which is the number on Sakuragi’s (Slam Dunk’s protagonist) jersey. The “Slam Dunk” collection has already been released in select Asian markets. However, out of all the upcoming Jordan release dates 2014, 23 is Back readers should be looking forward to November 1 for the global release of this pair.
