Air Jordan 3 Inspired Xbox One X consoles

Are you a sneakerhead who loves gaming? If so, here's your chance to win the ultimate Xbox One X console, with a design inspired by the iconic Air Jordan 3 sneaker.

Xbox Marketing head Aaron Greenberg, who is an avid sneakerhead in his own right, revealed his excitement in announcing the collaboration between Jordan Brand and Xbox.

"30 years ago, I was sitting at home watching Michael Jordan participate in the 1988 slam dunk contest as he took off from the free throw line in what would become the most iconic dunk in basketball history," Greenberg wrote in a blog post. "Not only was it one of the greatest and most watched moments in basketball history, it launched a revolution -- every kid (like me) from around the world would spend years experiencing the thrill of what it’s like to own the same sneakers as the Jumpman himself... Today, I’m honored and humbled to announce a very special and unique collaboration between Air Jordan and Xbox."

Xbox has produced three custom Xbox One X consoles, inspired by the retro releases of the Air Jordan 3 this week for NBA All-Star Weekend, including the "Free Throw Line", the "Black Cement" and the "Tinker".

The "Free Throw Line" Xbox One X pays homage to the unforgettable dunk by Jordan in 1988. The "Black Cement" Xbox One X is inspired by the sneakers with all the same detailing, which made these, considered by many, the greatest sneakers of all-time. And finally, the "Tinker" Xbox One X showcases legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield’s original design for what the shoe was going to be.

Xbox has launched a contest from now until Feb. 21 at 10 pm PT, giving three fans the opportunity to win one of the consoles.

"Having the world’s most powerful console meet a legendary brand like Jordan for the first time ever is something truly special for sneakerheads and gamers everywhere," said Xbox.
