Almost two years ago—86 weeks, to be exact—Drake announced that OVO would be joining the Air Jordan family. He teased two pairs of sneakers—Stingray 10s and 12s—in black and white colorways.
In January of 2015—a year after the initial announcement, mind you—Drake gave away two pairs at Drake Night at the Toronto Raptors game. On eBay, the sneakers were going for $100, 000. The interest in the collaboration was, obviously, very high.
Then, in April, the 10s dropped unexpectedly in extremely limited quantities at the OVO popup in L.A. While more than two pairs were available, they were still #VERYRARE and quickly snatched up at $225 a pop.
The #AirJordan X 'OVO' will launch globally at select Jordan retailers on September 12. @welcomeOVO

Well, after the long—very long!—wait, Jordan and OVO have heard our cries and are finally releasing the highly-anticipated collab. Speculative consensus around the interwebz seems to be that the first to drop will be the Air Jordan 10 in white.
