It looks like the Air Jordan 1 ‘Xbox’ will drop just in time for the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
E3, a week-long event put on by the gaming industry, gives numerous gaming and software companies a huge stage to showcase their latest and greatest innovations. With all eyes on E3, sneaker companies like Nike are capitalizing on the event by releasing limited edition sneakers.
Over the weekend, WearTesters reported that the next Playstation x Nike Air Force 1 collaboration had been unveiled and is rumored to drop during or around Sony’s press conference at E3 at 6 PM PT today, June 11. With Microsoft being one of Sony’s chief rivals in the video game industry, it only makes sense that it too would have a sneaker collaboration coming.
Although Microsoft’s Xbox briefing has passed (the presentation came with huge news for fans of exclusive titles like Halo), this Air Jordan 1 ‘Xbox’ has not. According to Rob Heppler, who first showcased the shoe, all of the Xbox representatives are wearing this Xbox-themed shoe in LA for E3.
It appears that this particular Air Jordan 1 build features a suede upper with a green outsole, which could mean that it is glow-in-the-dark like the laces — that would be very Xbox. There is a small heel Air unit embedded within the midsole for some comfort underfoot if you decide to ball in these.
Sneaker leaker @pinoe77 says the Air Jordan 1 ‘Xbox’ is set to drop on June 13, right during the heart of E3 week. No pricing or official release information has been announced as of yet, but expect very limited quantities.
