Mitchell & Ness has linked once again for another throwback-style collection, inspired by the iconic 1990s video game NBA Jam.
Combining the aesthetic of the iconic 90’s video game with Mitchell & Ness sportswear, the capsule features jerseys, shorts, hats and T-shirts of legendary players from NBA Jam.
Through Mitchell & Ness and this collection, they tell a story of some players who were not traditionally featured in the original NBA Jam videogame but received a personalized game with their own “players.” Being a big fan of NBA Jam, Gary Payton was eager to play himself in the game, and worked with developers to introduce a special edition to include himself and his friends. It was through Payton that friend & MLB outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. also received a personalized version of the game.
Also incorporated players that were featured in the original game, such as Scottie Pippen, Patrick Ewing, Tim Hardaway, Chris Mullin, Jerian Grant, John Starks and Shawn Kemp.
The Mitchell & Ness x Just Don “NBA Jam” Capsule is available now at the brand’s online store, ranging from $400 to $500 USD.
