If you hated the original Jordan XV (which was actually a pretty dope looking shoe with materials that made them look beat ultra quick) then the Kubo XV might make you a fan.  The official sneaker of the new movie Adventure of Kubo And The Two Strings Nike is building upon a tradition with animation studio Laika.

Following in the footsteps of specially designed sneakers for each of the three previous LAIKA movies: Coraline, The Boxtrolls, and ParaNorman Tinker Hatfield designed shoes inspired by the films; the latter proved to be a particularly popular shoe, and each new issue has become a high demand rarity in the sneaker community.

Over 300 pairs of the customized Jordan Brand sneakers celebrating the spirit and magic of the movie’s young hero Kubo are being made available to fans who compete to win pairs. So, how do you win a pair?

Complex will announce an online sweepstakes* beginning later this week, hosted by the website, where its followers will have a chance to win one of five pairs of the Kubo XV.

Separately, timed to the “From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical LAIKA Experience” opening August 5 at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Globe Theatre, Kernel (www.kernel.com) will offer the website’s ticket buyers to the interactive event a chance to win a pair as well.

On August 8, the Just Keep Livin Foundation (www.jklivinfoundation.org) will host a live eBay auction with dozens of pairs of Kubo XV sneakers up for bidding; all the proceeds will go to the Foundation’s programs that teach the importance of decision-making, health, education, and active living.
Finally, on August 11, gamers will be able, as Kubo, to battle the Moon Beast in the fifth game* available online at the official Kubo and the Two Strings website www.kubothemovie.com can compete to be in the top 250 scorers and win a pair of Kubo XVs.
