Michael Jordan once said: “By the time you see me coming, it’s too late.” His quote, and the way he approached the game of basketball throughout his career, inspired the stealth aesthetic featured in the Air Jordan XX8. The special Jordan pack, comprised of an Air Jordan I, Air Jordan III, Jordan MELO M9 and Jordan CP3.VI, takes its color cues from the Air Jordan XX8′s night vision-inspired look.
The All-Star stealth pack will drop in two separate offering, with the first offering releasing on the 14th of February and the second releasing on the 16th. Melo’s M9 will release with the CP3.VI on the 14th, while the Jordan 1 Retro Mid and Jordan III will release on the 16th. More info and pictures after the jump.
The M9 features UV ink throughout the upper that lights up under a black light. The outsole of the M9 glows, to add even more to the night-vision inspired look.
As you can see in the pictures below, the outsole of the M9 is quite bland under normal light, but the second you step into some darkness, it illuminates. I have to say, Jordan brand has really stepped up their game with the recent Melo releases.
The M9 will retail for $145, while the CP3.IV will go for $125.
