Xbox And Nike Team Up To Release Jordan-Themed Xbox One X
It also has a matching sister shoe, the Air Jordan III Retro.
Brand collaborations are all the rage nowadays. Two industry heavyweights, Microsoft and Nike, are taking their turn to explore the joys of brand partnership by releasing a new Jordan-themed Xbox One X console and controllers. It's certainly a vivid design with all the Jordan trademarks present: red elephant print covers the devices, and the signature jumpman graces the top of the console and the corners of the controllers.
Unfortunately, it's all up to lady luck if you want to snag one of these. The only way to get a Jordan-themed Xbox is to participate in Microsoft's sweepstakes on Twitter. To enter, follow the official Xbox Twitter handle, retweet the announcement, and add #Xboxsweepstakes. The giveaway ends February 27, and only one winner will be selected.
The console has a sister shoe, the Air Jordan III Retro, which unsurprisingly also comes in a red and black colorway. Sadly, the shoe is similarly hard to get. It will be available at the upcoming All-Star Weekend in Chicago, so you'll need to physically be there to grab a pair.
If you're interested in another pair of Xbox and Nike shoes, the two companies also collaborated a couple years ago to create an E3 exclusive Xbox Air Jordan 1, a sneaker with classic green and black Xbox colors. The shoe, though, comes with a hefty price tag and resales for an average price of $1,777 according to Stockists.
