Nike Air Jordan XX8

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.

No images found.

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.

    I think the xx8 main flaw is that it does not mesh aesthetics and functionality. Technologically it is very and advanced and yes it may be effective, but as designers i believe that they should have designed the to look good not just when its zipped down, because if you have to remove a feature to make it look good then in my opinion I think this design is incomplete

    people would camp for these if Jordan wore em with the bulls. i love em (not the price), but maybe it just me. I like performance shoes that make people say “TF are those??” lol

    I kinda fuck with them. I definitely would hoop in them, but not for 250.

    This video changed my opinion on em, but that price tag is ridiculous

    these are the ugliest fucking jordan shoes I’ve ever seen.. Look like some sketchers with the Jumpman on it. And for 250, got me fucked up.
