Each year Jordan Brand puts on the Jordan Brand Classic in New York City. The Classic brings out the the top prep basketball stars from around the country. The event gives the athletes the opportunity to showcase their skills on the big stage, Madison Square Garden. Some of the big names to previously participate in the Jordan Brand Classic include, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Amare Stoudemire, this year’s NBA Rookie of the Year, Tyreke Evans, and countless other NBA stars.
For this year’s event Jordan hooked up the participants with special edition colorways of the Jordan Icons silhouette. The Jordan Icons silhouette combines elements from two Jordan models, the Jordan 20 and Jordan 23. Along with the a nod to Michael Jordan’s many accomplishments, the Icons features graphics on the outsole from elements of the history of Jordan shoes. These two colorways that were created for the Jordan Brand Classic are differentiated from others by not only their colors but also by the Jordan Brand Classic logo on the heel.
