This one goes to fans of NBA star, New Orleans Pelicans’ Zion Williamson, and/or super fans of Japanese anime Naruto. The NBA All-Star and New Orleans Pelicans’ power forward may be out of action this season due to an injury but he ain’t doing nothing.

Naruto x Jordan Zion Collection and Sneakers

Zion is busy working with Jordan for a unique collab featuring his favorite anime, Naruto. The Naruto x Jordan Zion Collection includes Zion 1 kicks in special Naruto-inspired colorways as well as Naruto x Jordan apparel with Zion’s logo on them.

From the brief behind the design video, we can see that these outfits look great. The shoes, which are the obvious attraction of this collection, are a must-have if you are a super fan of Zion and/or Naruto.

Speaking of sneakers, all told there are three colorways of the Zion 1, along with a fourth promotional model in a special colorway. The latter is the Jordan Air 200E in Jonin colorway, featuring the commonly seen military drab design Jonin wears as well as the shin wrappings on the toe. Very cool.

As for the regular Zion 1 x Naruto lineup, it includes the Zion 1 Nine Tails Edition with colors inspired by the Nine Tails that live inside Naruto, the Zion 1 Kyubi aka Nine Tails Mode inspired by the Nine Tails Sage Mode form of Naruto when he mastered control over the beast, and finally, there is the Zion 1 Sage of the Six Paths.

True to the Sage of the Six Paths, the kicks are presented in an asymmetrical black and white colorway with black circle designs representing the power orbs that surround the sage and accented by the familiar Uzumaki clan symbol in red.

The Naruto x Jordan Zion Collection is expected to drop on May 11, 2022. We heard the Zion 1 Kyubi will also drop on the same day while the other two, Zion 1 Nine Tails and Zion 1 Sage of the Six Paths, are slated to arrive on the 18th. Naruto-themed Zion 1 will sell for US$130 a pair.

However, it is unclear when the promotional kicks will be released, how much they will sell for, and how you can acquire them. In the meantime, you can view more images HERE.
