If you’re wondering where that funky mid-foot strap on the upcoming Jordan Of Mars came from, look back to the Air Jordan XX that debuted in 2004-2005. It featured that sick laser mosaic on the thick mid-foot strap as well as an ankle strap that floats above the ankle like a halo. The XX also introduced IPS – Independent Podular System – to the Air Jordan line, which would later be adapted to fit Chris Paul’s signature line with Podulon. It’s now apparent that ideas from the Air Jordan XX are now manifesting itself in more contemporary models – the strap on the Son Of Mars, the ankle strap on the Air Jordan 2012, and the previously mentioned Podulon system, so it’s only fitting that we now introduce to you the Air Jordan XX ‘History Of Flight’ in our ongoing featurette of the History Of Flight eBay auctions. We’ve got a nice gallery of this sick promo pair below, so take a gander and visit the auction from btn_16 on eBay.

These must come from the niketown here in Portland because they used to have these in every kind but I went back and noticed the anniversarys are on display instead of the read and white collection.
Such quality for something that didnt release you would think there retail products would be crazy...but sadly we know the truth
