On Monday, during Jordan Brand’s unveiling of the Air Jordan XX8, it was revealed that the newly signed Russell Westbrook would debut the new Jordan signature during the Tuesday-night game against the Brooklyn Nets. This development was quite the rapid escalation for Russell, who just a couple of months ago wasn’t even under the Jumpman label; however, it’s clear that Jordan Brand not only has the support of Russell, but the confidence that he can maintain the supreme reputation that the Air Jordan has forged since 1985.

Lackluster sales of the preceding Air Jordan 2012 model was partly due to an absence of an enticing on-court presence, but with Jordan Brand’s newest star sporting the kicks, will the Air Jordan XX8 fare any better? The verdict’s still out and we’ll have to wait for more developments until the sneaker officially releases in mid-February, so in the mean-time, take a look at the debut of the Air Jordan XX8 on Russell Westbrook and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all your Air Jordan 28 updates.

These had potential...The silhouette looks nice when they're all the way zipped down. But zipped up it's just like a super high-top Son of glove. Maybe they'll release an altered version like they usually do and address that or maybe like a low version without the sleeve. Then I'll consider these.

I didn't think the shoe could look any worse but Russ proved me wrong. Either zip it all the way up or fold it down. What's with the halfway zipped look? I guess the NBA logo on the socks had to show idk

 i think these have potential, they don't look very good but I can imagine that they perform well on the court. I just hope its not similar to the kobe system in the 7s...

It's as if JB is meaning to enrage their consumers. JB, please stop trying to make a statement.

 @Da_Real_Big_Infinite  @Big_Infinite it's an online sneaker blog.  get over yourself.  you aren't tight and you aren't even "Big_Infinite"...I AM.  Don't hate cause I have this livefyre tag and you're stuck repping that you're "da_real..."  I don't need to show my face to some chump who trolls my comments while attempting to steal my name.  Giving in to that is allowing a stalker to win.
