The Jordan Brand Wings program was born from the need to support education and youth-focused outreach programs for high school and college athletes across the nation. Over the NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, the program showed its continued commitment by presenting six high-school athletes with college scholarships during the “Own The Game” Invitational, which featured the nation’s most talented high school athletes and teams.
On top of the program’s Invitational, the brand also delivered its first-ever Air Jordan 4 “Wings” to the founder of retail conglomerate The Whitaker Group, James Whitner – given for his continued commitment to the community. The new iteration comes doused in black leather with royal blue and yellow accents scattered throughout the shoe. The shoe will remain unreleased and will be given to various deserving individuals who strive to employ the Jordan Wings program’s message and values.
Take a look at the Air Jordan 4 “Wings” above, and in case you missed it, the Air Jordan 4 “Silt Red” is expected to drop this month.
