Buy: The shoes will be released as part of a raffle at UNDEFEATED’s opening of its Harajuku Meiji Dori store in Tokyo (more info below).
Editor’s Notes: When UNDEFEATED’s collaboration with Nike Basketball was teased back in February, we got a look at three colorways: white, camo, and the above olive/orange. It turns out the first two were for public release, while the third — UNDEFEATED’s “Flight Jacket” colorway — ended up being a friends and family pair.
The olive and orange colorway was most famously used on the retailer’s 2005 Nike Air Jordan IV collaboration, which is now selling for insane prices.
Now, sneakerheads will be afforded the chance to win one of only 10 pairs at UNDEFEATED’s Harajuku Meiji Dori store opening in Tokyo. Anyone who buys something from the store on Saturday and Sunday (July 14 and 15), will be entered into a raffle for the shoes. The lucky raffle winners will then square off in a basketball competition to win a pair.
With major sneaker drops becoming 10 a penny, this is a fun alternative to first come, first served and regular raffle systems.
