At the end of July, news started breaking of Justin Timberlake giving out pairs of his “Legends of the Summer” Air Jordans – shoes made especially for JT to rock during his “Legends of The Summer” tour with Jay-Z – both via scavenger hunts and to lucky fans in attendance at the shows. Today, we bring you a look at one of those pairs, the Air Jordan I “Legends of The Summer” in Black/Red/Silver.
One of two pairs of Air Jordan I’s specially made for Timberlake (the other an all-red affair, seen here), this pair features a black and red leather upper, with metallic silver accents found on the toebox and Swoosh. The shoes sit atop a metallic red midsole and clear outsole, both of which add to the premium, blinged-out look of the shoe. The insoles features the words “Suit & Tie”, the name of the JT x Jay-Z collaboration featured on Timberlake’s new album “The 20/20 Experience”. This particular pair also features writing by JT on both the tongue and the heel, with the tongue reading “Rock City 8/6/13” and featuring his signature, while the heel features the initials of the tour, “L.O.T.S”.
Hit the jump for a look at this extremely rare pair, and join the rest of us in crying ourselves a river (of man-tears, of course…), wishing we were the lucky dude who has this pair in his collection (we see you, Troy Smith!).
