It’s tough out here for Jordan fans trying to communicate with emojis. The standard emoticon keyboard will often leave you vainly trying to express enthusiasm via a brown brogue or vaguely ‘Chef’ Curry 2-looking motif. Needs have been partially met in the past thanks to a ‘Shoemoji’ selection from Footlocker and the Nike Mag emoji was a welcome gift from the Nike+ app, but notable Jumpman models have always been conspicuously absent.
Those days are almost over, though, as Jordan Brand has announced they’ll be releasing a Jordan-centric emoji keyboard. All your favourites have been called off the bench – there are ‘Shattered Backboards’, ‘Breds’, championship rings, goats and even DJ Khaled. Never again will you have to post your new Jays on Instagram with a dad shoe, mocked-up ‘23’ or a bread loaf emoji.
The Jordan Brand emoji keyboard is slated to release in November, we’ll keep you posted.
