Each year Jordan Brand brings together the brightest young stars that are preparing to make the jump from high school to the college level for the Jordan Brand Classic. This year’s even will take place this Saturday, April 16 at 8:00 PM ET at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. In previous years, the Jordan Brand Classic has been a showcase of future superstars, like LeBron James, Tyreke Evans, Derrick Rose, and many others. This year’s event looks to be just as exciting with the top five players in the country, Austin Rivers, Anthony Davis, Michael Gilchrist, Quincy Miller and James McAdoo all set to take the court.
While last year Jordan Brand supplied all the players with the Jordan Icons, this year’s athletes will be supplied with special limited edition colorways of the Air Jordan 2011. Two colorways of the latest innovative creation in a long line of Jordan shoes have been created, one for each team. The first in an Orion Blue and Black combination and the second in a Black and Comet Red makeup. Of course, each colorway will feature interchangeable midsoles, allowing the players to choose between the “Quick” Zoom Air cushioning, or the “Explosive” Max Air cushioning. A limited number of the Jordan Brand Classic Air Jordan 2011 colorways is now available.
