The Bobcats colorway is extremely limited and being raffled off at most Champs and Foot Locker locations. Tickets are available Wed 1/8 and Thursday 1/9.

But the Jordan Brand has something special in store for smaller feet too. The Air Jordan Retro 10 “Legion Red” will drop along side the Bobcat ensuring fans of the Retro X silhouette get their pick.

Another retro line that has seen success is the Nike Zoom Flight “The Glove” originally given fame by the legend Gary Payton.
