A very special edition of Air Jordans has been created to celebrate the release of new movie Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
In case you hadn't noticed, 2018 has been a pretty big year for Spider-Man. In September, the new PlayStation 4 game from Marvel and Insomniac was lauded as the best Spidey game ever. That is praise indeed, considering the PS1 version and its sequel. Plus, look away now if you still haven't seen Infinity War, Spider-Man's exit as heroes disappeared left and right at the end of the movie stole the show.
The hype from Infinity War and the Spider-Man game may have died down, but focus on the web-slinger will not be going anywhere any time soon. That's because the Marvel hero's newest animated adventure, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, is set to hit theaters around the world over the next week or so. More specifically, December 14th in the United States.
Early indications suggest that the new movie has once again raised the bar for Spider-Man movies. There are so many at this point that they need to be different, and this one clearly is. To celebrate the movie's release, Marvel has teamed up with Nike to bring fans some unique and extremely good-looking Air Jordans. If you're anything like us having now seen them you won't just want a pair, you'll need a pair.
Ray Polanco Jr. unveiled the Air Jordan 1 "Origin Story" design at the premiere of the movie they are celebrating. If you were lucky enough to be nearby on December 1st, you could have bought a pair from FootLocker's House of Hoops truck near the movie premiere in Los Angeles, as reported by Hot New Hip Hop. If not, they will be available again at select Nike stores on December 14th, the same day the movie is released in the US.
As if the trainers weren't cool enough already, here's something that will tip the scales for you. Miles Morales, the lead character/Spider-Man in Into The Spider-Verse, wears them in the movie. Honestly, if you have the chance and the money to buy yourself a pair, how could you not? At the very least, ask someone to consider them as a Christmas present.
