Editor’s Notes: After being teased and rumored for a while, we now have official confirmation that Paris Saint-Germain and Jordan Brand are releasing a co-branded collection.
The collection comprises two Air Jordan sneakers — a Nike Air Jordan V and Air Jordan I — a Nike PhantomVSN football cleat, two Jordan Brand PSG jerseys, and various street-ready pieces of apparel.
Depending on whether you’re more of a basketball or soccer fan, the collection’s highlights will differ from person to person. However, it’s clear that both Jordan Brand and PSG have put a lot of thought into the capsule.
Both the footwear and the apparel collections are predominantly black and white with hits of red for a pop of color. Each product features a special version of Paris Saint-Germain’s crest, switching out the Eiffel Tower for the Jumpman.
While maybe a surprise to some, the Jordan x PSG collaboration has been brewing for some time and makes sense for two big reasons. First, Jordan Brand is owned by Nike, which produces PSG’s kits, making this a natural extension of that partnership. In addition, Jordan Brand’s presence in Paris has been growing by the year thanks to events such as the Quai 54 World Streetball Championship and Michael Jordan’s first visit to the city in 1985.
Speaking about the partnership with PSG, His Airness himself commented, “Jordan Brand and Paris Saint-Germain share a distinct position in sport and style, so to partner with the club is a natural fit.”
NBA All-Star and Jordan Brand athlete Jimmy Butler also shared his thoughts on the collection, saying, “I can’t wait to see PSG and my guy Neymar rocking the Jumpman. Every time I visit Paris, I feel like there’s more energy for Jordan in the city. Putting the Jumpman on PSG is going to take it to another level.”
