Earlier this year, Jordan Brand and the House of Hoops by Foot Locker hosted an event with Jordan Brand’s Gentry Humphrey. During this event, Gentry first unveiled two Air Jordan XX3s, the [“Old Love” Air Jordan XX3] and the “New Love” Air Jordan XX3. According to Gentry, the “New Love” Air Jordan XX3 was designed to represent Michael Jordan’s new love of motorcycle racing and the colors were selected to match the Michael Jordan Motorsports’ uniform and motorcycles. The XX3 that Gentry was speaking about, pictured above from the event, looked a lot like the [Air Jordan XX3 that is releasing this Friday]. As pictures began to hit the Net a while back and as the sneaker released outside of the US, the sneaker community began calling this Air Jordan XX3 the Motorsports XX3. The hangtag on the XX3 though, featured the Washington Wizards font and the years 2001-2003, the years that MJ played for the Wizards. So, Motorsports or Wizards? You can call them whatever you like.
