The Air Jordan 15 is set to retro in 2016, with an upcoming limited edition Kubo Air Jordan 15 collaboration.
This Air Jordan 15 release is inspired by the animated film, “Kubo and the Two Strings,” a movie from the animation studio Laika that’s owned by Nike co-found and chairman Phil Knight. The movie was directed by his son Travis Knight and will hit theaters on Thursday, August 18th.
About the film: It’s about a young boy named Kubo who must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.
While we wait for an official unveiling of the Kubo x Air Jordan 15 that’s set to take place tomorrow, August 4th, you can get a preview from Tinker Hatfield in the clip below.
UPDATE: Over 300 pairs of the customized Kubo x Air Jordan 15 will celebrate the spirit and magic of the movie’s young hero Kubo are being made available to fans who compete to win pairs through exciting multimedia platforms. The ways to win are as unique as the shoe itself.
On August 8th, the Just Keep Livin Foundation (www.jklivinfoundation.org) will host a live eBay auction with dozens of pairs of Kubo XV sneakers up for bidding; all the proceeds will go to the Foundation’s programs that teach the importance of decision-making, health, education, and active living.
Finally, on August 11th, gamers will be able, as Kubo, to battle the Moon Beast in the fifth game* available online at the official Kubo and the Two Strings website www.kubothemovie.com can compete to be in the top 250 scorers and win a pair of Kubo XVs.
