"9FIVE is incredibly pleased to celebrate Five years in business as of today, 9/5, 2013. From a brand that was originally formed in a small home garage in San Diego, 9FIVE has amassed a paramount team of professional skateboarders that now endorse the brand, a large tastemaker following, and has been worn by many of the most prominent figures in music and professional sports. To celebrate this landmark, 9FIVE has released the “5 Years of 9FIVE” video, presented by Hypebeast, chronicling the brand’s history. 9FIVE is also releasing two new frames, both now available on 9fivesite online store and at 9FIVE’s Flagship store in Downtown San Diego. Any purchase of eyewear made on September 5th (Today), either on 9fivesite.com or at the 9FIVE Flagship store, will come with the limited edition “5 Years Of 9FIVE” T-shirt, while supplies last."
H-Town is jumping off right now with NBA All-Star weekend activity. Jordan Brand is hosting the premier event though and has taken over The Houston Footaction, House Of Hoops and Footlocker locations all together. That's where we saw the trill OG Bun B chopping it up with Carmelo Anthony, who was running the 9FIVE x Jordan Brand LTD Sunglasses.
Being an official member of Team Jordan, Carmelo got the jump on this frame that drops today in two color ways. Don't sleep on this collab which drops atRETAILERS WORLDWIDEtoday, and on 9fivesite.com at 12pm.
9FIVE Eyewear x Jordan Brand Limited Edition Sunglasses Collaboration
"In celebration of the Jordan XX8 release, 9FIVE™ has partnered with Jordan Brand™ to create this extremely limited edition sunglass/optical frame. Taking influence and design cues from the innovative Jordan XX8, the 9FIVE x Jordan Brand sunglasses boasts a handmade acetate black frame, with choice of black chrome or gloss silver metallic temples, and electric green temple tips. 1000 pairs will be sold worldwide at select 9FIVE/Jordan Brand retailers, and on 9fivesite.com at 12PM on 2/16. Each pair of glasses comes packaged in a miniature 9FIVE x Jordan Brand "Shoe Box".
9FIVE Eyewear was commissioned by Jordan Brand (Jumpman23) to help welcome NBA Point Guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Russell Westbrook, to their elite team of athletes with a customized set of 9FIVE x Jordan Brand reader frames and sunglasses. Russell Westbrook is one the NBA's youngest and most athletic Point Guard's, but is also known for his progressive off-court looks. The collaboration celebrates both of these distinctions.
If you are looking to buy the 9FIVE x Jordan Brand collaboration frames, I'm afraid they are player exclusive frames at this time. But you can find plenty of similar styles from the 9FIVE Eyewear Fall Collection, such as the Watson 2 in Black/Gold, or the KLS 2 in Red Snakeskin/Gold. Stay tuned for further news on a follow up project.
