UPDATE: The Michael Jordan Icon Edition and Association Edition Swingman Jersey’s are now available at nike.com for R 1,049.95 each.
To celebrate the upcoming Michael Jordan’s Netflix documentary coming in 2019 and the 20th Anniversary MJ’s “Last Shot” against the Utah Jazz during the 1998 NBA Finals, Nike will release a special-edition MJ Bulls jersey.
The jersey, which releases May 31, comes in three versions: an Authentic away (as worn for the last shot), as well as Swingman versions of the Bulls’ home and away, looks. Each jersey is equipped with NikeConnect technology, which will unlock access to select “The Last Dance” content prior to the series premiere in 2019.
The Authentic will come in a soft touch box with a clear window and magnetic closure and will retail for $400. The two Swingman jerseys will sell for $120.
The special-edition Bulls jersey also celebrates Friends of the Children, a national nonprofit that selects the most vulnerable children aged 4-6 from high-poverty schools and the foster care system and pairs them with a salaried, professional mentor who stays with them from kindergarten through graduation.
