Nike X Jordan Set To Launch First Ever Football Boots
Who among us doesn't love a pair of Air Jordans and who doesn't love a pair of beautiful football boots. Well fortunately the two are about to be coupled together in what almost looks like an April Fools joke.
Air Jordans, by very definition of being named after the most famous basketball player in the history of the sport, are mostly affiliated with the sport Michael Jordan was a genius at...baseball, sorry basketball of course.
However earlier this season the brand started a relationship with French champions PSG and created the side's third kit for the Champions League, it was a beautiful number but thanks to Manchester United we didn't see much of it.
So the idea that Jordan might be bringing out a pair of football boots would certainly be met with a lot of intrigue.
Whilst you can walk down any street and see umpteen members of the public wearing Air Jordans we aren't too sure that anyone will be wearing their boots on a five-a-side pitch or in a Sunday League game anytime soon:

Those boots are going to be on sale to the public but their original attempt at designing boots, in collaboration with Neymar, definitely have a better look to them.
N.B. These are the 1st Nike x Jordan football boots that will be available on a mass-market scale. Neymar's Jordan x Nike boots were of course the 1st. [:camera_with_flash: @RaucoulesG] pic.twitter.com/IX0CtRax6t- Get French Football News (@GFFN) March 29, 2019
Seeing as it's April Fools Day on Monday you'd be forgiven for being on your guard about ridiculous news stories before then but it looks like those are genuine.
Which of the PSG side will be first to don a pair of these? Neymar's already got his own so Kylian Mbappe might have to take one for the team, poor kid.
Is there anywhere you'd buy a pair of these or will you be steering clear?
