The Jordan Brand, a division of Nike have unveiled the Air Jordan XX8, the 28th shoe in the Jordan range. The new basketball shoe boasts an ultra-modern stealth design and more technological advances than you can shake a carbon fibre shoelace at.
This ultra light shoe designed by Tinker Hatfield has a load of new enhancements over the previous model. The Air Jordan features a high-performance, stretch-synthetic shroud that provides a sleek exterior, while a moulded external heel counter is made out of carbon fibre for lightweight support. A multi directional outsole pattern provides excellent traction and durability for the court. Schoeller mesh, a Swiss fabric used in premium motorcycling jackets, is used in the shroud that encompasses the shoe to provide an extra layer of support, stability and style for the athlete.
It will only be available in Houston on February 15, 2013, and then nationwide on Saturday, February 16, for a suggested retail price of $250.
