Jordans 2017 also designed two special edition sets that included models 1-30 comprised of White versions and the other in Black. Both the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8 from the sets were highlighted in Los Angeles Lakers colors. When Kobe Bryant was a sneaker free agent, he wore many different sneakers from all types of brands. However, what stood out the most was his Air Jordan 3 "Lakers" and Air Jordan 8 "Lakers" PE which were in LA’s Home colors. Modeled after the player exclusive the Kobe Bryant wore during the 2002-03 season, a time where he was a sneaker free agent. During that stretch he flirted with Jordan Brand, Nike and even Reebok, before taking his talents to Nike and the rest is history.
New Air Jordan Shoes Before Kobe got his Nike contract and just after his departure from adidas, he was one of the most coveted sneaker free agents of all time. For a short stint Kobe wore an array of PE Jordans on the hardwood including this Laker edition Air Jordan 8. While Kobe was figuring out his contract with Nike Basketball, he switched things up and even received some special packages from Jordan Brand in the form of the Air Jordan 3 Kobe and the Air Jordan 8 Kobe. Each PE resurfaced again in extremely limited numbers last year right before the celebration of Mamba Day, as Kobe said farewell with one last monster scoring performance, scoring 60 against the Utah Jazz in a win at Staples Center. Select celebrities showed up in the pairs, like Jay-Z’s courtside appearance. It features model-specific dustbags, a double-sized box with two compartments for the shoes, and other markings that represent Kobe Bryant and, of course, Jordan Brand.
Cheap Jordans 2017 will commemorate Bryant's career and looming retirement by releasing a special two-pack of his old Jordan PEs. The pack is said to include his highly coveted Air Jordan 3, along with the Air Jordan 8. Jordan Brand pays tribute to retiring NBA legend Kobe Bryant with a special double pack release. The pack features two previous PE colorways of the Air Jordan 3 Retro and Air Jordan 8 Retro that both feature "home" Los Angeles Lakers colorways. A special Lakers themed pair of Air Jordan 8s is pictured below today that once again show the superstar status of "The Black Mamba". The pair pair sports a predominately white upper with purple and gold hits on the tongue, midsole and inner liner.
