“Today is the day that football and style change forever,” claims the release on Paris Saint-Germain’s web site, and in some ways that isn’t as absurd as it sounds coming from the French football giants.
PSG announced a massive clothing line with Air Jordan on Thursday, including a Michael Jordan No. 23 “Paris” basketball jersey and a third kit for the 2018-19 season.

Aside from color, the kit doesn’t look much different from the standard Nike PSG jersey. The Jumpman, of course, stands out opposite the PSG crest.
Now let’s see if the Jordan two-three Paris jersey sells as well as his Space Jam replica. One thing’s for sure, this line does seem set to sell loads overseas and domestically.
Neymar is into it. From PSG.FR:
“For me the Jordan Brand means phenomenal, magic, irreverent. It is perfect for Paris and for the Champions League. It is a huge responsibility to carry Jordan’s name on a shirt and we look forward to an excellent season. Two partners that are champions, both Paris and Jordan, so I really hope this connection brings us many titles.”
