The moment the Air Jordan XX8 was revealed last Monday, the discussions regarding the unprecedented $250 price-tag heated up quickly. Here’s a first look at what will house the $250 sneaker – a far cry from the massive, multi-tiered box used in the Air Jordan 2012; it mixes the Air Jordan 2011 box (larger, top-folding box lid) with the Air Jordan XI Retros of years past (a slide-out encasing) for a sleek design that shouldn’t take too much space in your sneaker closet (should you choose to cop). A full gallery is below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates as we approach the Air Jordan XX8 release on February 15th.

the only thing i'm worried about this shoe is when ya zip them all the way up either it wont be stretchy enough for legs or they wont stay up. cuz i wanna rock them zipped up & zipped down
Jordan foreskin XX8. First (and only) circumcision ive ever looked forward to. Cant wait to see how they feel on the court.
I wonder why Nike/JB feels like if they over price a shoe and they come w/ dust bags that makes everything alright... No.. Just no..
nice. screw all the haters im copping a pair but only if i can use my employee discoubt cause i wouldnt pay retail for em its a bit too much hell i wouldnt even pay retail for the half assed retros that come out nowadays but it seems like a lot of ya would smh at least these will have quality built into it and last unlike everything else jb drops. ya willing to drop $185 plus tax on the xi dropping with shit quality which amazes me
The insoles are missing, which makes me wonder if there's a choice like the 2011s. I know Tinker likes those Nike field boots, but I wish he didn't bring that look to a Jordan. BTW, does anybody know what happened with that planned retro of the The Gloves? GP was taking about it and it didn't happen. Kind of funny that these show up now.
I can't see myself getting on board with these but for $250, it better come with more than a dust bag
man i cant believe jordan brand would make these shoes why did they make the sleeve so damn fuckn high like how can u wear these shoes with shorts they look like boots im just not feeling these J's ill wait til nike factory gets them
It looks awesome and it's a must cop for me.. :) thanks for Jordan Brand for doing this.. new innovation to lead the design again.. Tinker your the man..
@Mr.CinderSix's not really over pricing if you think about it. by adding the "flight plate", the other carbon fiber, the zoom air surrounded by foam that stuff costs money. plus the dust bag aha
@Dezfriednutz Y'all keep talking bout "Shit Quality", but I take care of my kicks, and all the recent retros I've copped are holding up perfectly. I don't know what exactly you expect; the shoes weren't made in bronze...
@DugLast nike got too much going on for them right now they aint sweating or maybe they dont think the fan base is there
@jwjumpman736 You just said you don't like them, but you'd buy them from a nike outlet????? lol....contradictory statement
@KevinLo1 There's zero innovation here.
@KevinLo1 good luck you look like a baser anyway so im not surprise
@KevinLo1 he didn't have to much innovation all he did was take the whole design of GP the Gloves shoes design
@asshoe More like 50% off
