•For its second release, NikeCourt unites a great player and his idol. Roger Federer and Michael Jordan share an obsession with winning, but that is just the beginning. Federer has long admired the basketball legend and even moonlighted as a hooper during his adolescent years. Honoring two athletes who have mastered their respective sports, NikeCourt presents the limited edition NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan, an unprecedented amalgamation that combines the sport innovation of the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 with the attitude and off-court appeal of the Air Jordan 3.
Signature details of the Zoom Vapor 9.5 include Dynamic Fit technology, a Nike Zoom unit housed in cushioned and supportive Phylon and a low-profile upper. In the legendary white/cement Air Jordan 3 colorway, the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 also features the wide Air Jordan 3 Jumpman-embroidered tongue, signature RF graphics, premium leather, elephant-print panels, and the instantly recognizable Nike Air branding on the heel.
The limited edition NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan will be available in white/fire red-cement grey at North America NikeLab destinations, Niketown New York, Flight 23 and online beginning August 27.
