The vision designer Tinker Hatfield had in designing this new Kubo and The Two Strings x Air Jordan 15 collaboration is truly amazing. While the Air Jordan 15 is highly regarded as the least favorite silhouette in Michael Jordan’s signature line, choosing to use it for the Nike (Air Jordan) x LAIKA collaboration.
While the folks at Nike by way of SNKRS unveiled that the collaboration would be coming soon, it was by way of Complex who sat down with Tinker in an interview to talk all about the upcoming Kubo Air Jordan 15. Taking to the Air Jordan 15 was described by Tinker as getting a do over as he never really gets to do that with a design.
The left and right shoe contrast one another as the story of Good vs Evil is depicted in the colorway for this new iteration inspired by the theme throughout Kubo and The Two Strings. The woven on the upper was what immediately led to Tinker to use the Air Jordan 15 because it fit with the texture and direction of the movie.
There will be a number of ways for people to try and get themselves a pair of the Kubo and The Two Strings x Air Jordan 15; Complex will announce a giveaway with five pairs, you can buy a ticket for “From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical LAIKA Experience,” opening at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Globe Theatre on August 5th, also through Kernel we will get access to an interactive event to possibly win a pair. Lastly, on August 11th, a game on the Kubo website will reward the top 250 players with a pair.
