Near the beginning of February, Jimmy Butler ended up injuring his knee that not only sent him to the bench but also prevented him from taking part in this Sunday’s recent NBA All-Star Game. However, the fact that he is currently one of NBA’s finest athletes can definitely not be denied, considering that he puts his best into both his on-court and off-court endeavors. He also happens to be determined, hard working and persistent. No wonder, not only has a special Air Jordan 29 iteration been whipped up for him by the Jumpman, while its Jordan releases 2016 is also taking place this month.
Around the same time that Jimmy sustained his knee injury, he was fortunate enough to have been recruited by Jordan Brand, which also makes sense because he plays for the Chicago Bulls. On his Instagram account, Jimmy shared some photos of his very own apparel collection that he and Jordan Brand collectively worked on. Apparel and hats could be seen in the photos, all of which featured his logo on them. Butler himself claimed that his apparel collection will be “coming soon,” but now it seems that his Air Jordan 29 iteration, which is not really a PE, will hit the shelves first.
Jordanheads who find this Air Jordan 29 rendition familiar is likely because they may have watched a certain vide in which Don C was at RIF L.A. shopping for sneakers, in which this sneaker was featured. It is not surprising that this sneaker is dressed up in a Chicago Bulls-inspired color scheme that is a combination of Black and Red. The entire upper of this sneaker also sports the Elephant Print, while its inner lining, laces and tongue are covered in Black too. Moreover, this sneaker is also equipped with a Red midsole and an icy, translucent Blue outsole, while the tongue of the left shoe also features Jimmy’s logo.
Indeed, Jimmy Butler’s Air Jordan 29 colorway will actually be arriving at retailers before his apparel collection becomes available. Its debut Jordan releases 2016 has been confirmed for February 24th and it will be retailing at a price of $190.
