When Nike asked two of the most stylish men ever to dominate the fields of basketball and tennis, respectively, to bang their heads together with the goal of designing a pair of trainers, it turned out Tim Henman and Dennis Rodman were busy.

Luckily, Michael Jordan and Roger Federer were not. Though it no doubt helped that these two sporting colossuses already boasted their own insignia and popular clothing lines with the sports giant. But this is something altogether different.

By way of honouring the careers of both sportsmen, the limited-edition NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan combines the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 with the more informal Air Jordan 3, making it perfect for any type of court.

The sporting hybrid includes crests for both stars along with Dynamic Fit, a Nike Zoom unit housed in cushioned and supportive Phylon and a low-profile upper. premium leather, elephant-print panels and Nike Air technology. In short, it’s stunning.

And if you were thinking each man has just stuck their name on it for the money, check the video below, showing the pair going over their unique collaboration in some detail, with the added bonus of R-Fed gushing over his childhood sporting idol.

The NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan are available to buy in certain US Nikelab destinations and limited online release from today.

They're certainly trainers to be courted.
