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".
In celebration of the recent Air Jordan BRED 11 re-issue, 9FIVE has released 4 variations of the Watson frame in the BRED color way. A black front frame with transparent red temples, and a transparent red front frame with black temples. Both frames are made with the highest quality handmade acetate, and come with option of black CR39 lens or clear lens. This frame can also be prescribed through our 9FIVERx program.
The Limited Edition 9FIVE "Safari" Tips sunglasses are inspired by the classic Nike Air Max Safari sneaker, originally released in 1987. Soft, full-grain leather wraps the handmade acetate frame front and temple tips. The outer temple features the iconic "Safari" print with a Burnt Orange inner, and comes with premium grade, Black Polarized lenses. The Limited 9FIVE Safari print Tips frame comes packaged in a miniature "shoe box", and can be purchased now at one of 9FIVE Eyewear's premier retailers, or click here to view the frame on 9FIVEsite.com
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.
