The most prominent design feature of the all-new Air Jordan XX8 is the zip-down construction that allows for a tight, bootie-like fit as well as a more casual, lower-cut stance when zipped down. This dual-personality of the XX8 allows the already versatile design to be both street and court ready, but what are your initial thoughts? Would you rock them off the court? Peep the extra shots below and stay tuned for more on the Air Jordan XX8 – Russell Westbrook’s wearing them tomorrow against the Nets.
Air Jordan XX8
Yeah these r fucking gay $250 wow i can already see sneakerheads smirking LOLing cuz there gonna sell em for $2,000 on ebay
These are PERFORMANCE sneakers. They are meant for basketball players, not for you to wear on the street and to school. That's what retros are still around for. Please understand that before you bash the sneaker, which is actually a nice sneaker especially for performance. God.
Gotta stay away from this gimmick stuff Tinker. The 2011's were sweet, why? Classic, simple design. These are just more fodder for the fire.
$250 saved for better things. I ball but i dont spend like that for sports kicks man. To each his own tho.
my guess is that it the upper will look like a high top air max 97 or maybe 95 from what i see so far
i am going to pay close attention to westbrook feet in tomorrows game vs brooklyn, because i am still out on these.
these are the Gormet Digan I think they are dope on feet these 28s will have a similar look for those who were wondering how the will look on feet http://www.everypeoples.com/word/images/features/gourmet_ss12/ep_gourmet_dignam_01.jpg
you're all dumbasses its tinkers jump to come up with new idea not cling to the past just cuz u like retros stfu and let the man do him. and all the ones saying u need to see someone wear it first before u form your own outlook on the shoe is just sad smh keep doing what ur doing tinker i like theses.
Honestly, this can't be it. I'm sure there will be outrageous hype surrounding theses (especially where I live), but these are not it. Not for me, at least. They can take these back. Having an acclaimed Nike designer AND Spike Lee involved on this sneaker and this is the end result? Y'all should be fired. I'd rather rock the old-school Gary Payton "Glove" kicks. Next.
i hope they come out with a model that doesn't have that lining over it. i want to see what the entire shoe looks like. i believe the shoe would look better without the lining.
man these were completely unexpected wow. I dont hate them. but I certainly dont love them either. wtbs a bred colorway needs to be seen
these are not good. why cover the shoe up, that volt green is hideous. these look like updated gary payton glove from years past. i don't think different colors would save these. NOT feeling these, i want to see westbrook wear these in the game tomorrow.
Sad, Tinker has fallen off completely! I Would'nt take these for FREE.... Me to Jordan:-----> "Don't let this man ruin your shoes anymore!." P.S. Tired of "Retros" too..
