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.[widgetkit id=4878]
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.[via: Nike]
