0.00 / 5 (NO VOTES YET)

The mysterious blue colorway of the Air Jordan XX8 is ready to burst out of the gate as four of the NCAA’s Jordan Brand teams will showcase this model this week in alignment with the official launch. The UNC Tar Heels, California Bears, Georgetown Hoyas, and Marquette Golden Eagles will wear the Air Jordan XX8 for four days beginning tonight; all teams will wear the Blue colorway, while the Georgetown Hoyas will stick with the stealthy Black version. Check out a detailed gallery below and stay tuned for more amazing headlines of the Air Jordan XX8 as we near the official launch this Saturday.

As Jordan Brand schools gear up for rivalry matchups starting Wednesday, they will have a distinct advantage on their feet: the Air Jordan XX8. Boasting an ultra-modern stealth design for elite performance including more technological advances than any AIR JORDAN to date, the Blue Camo version is expected to be worn by North Carolina, California and Marquette, while Georgetown is expected to wear the Black/Electric Green colorway.

Games include:

2/13 – UNC vs. Duke – Blue Camo

2/14 – California vs. UCLA – Blue Camo

2/15 – Georgetown vs. Cincinnati – Black/Electric Green

2/16 – Marquette vs. Pittsburgh – Blue Camo

The AIR JORDAN XX8 – the most tested and lightest AIR JORDAN ever – has an industry-changing first: the Jordan Flight Plate, a Pebax® moderator plate that maximizes the responsiveness of the Nike Zoom units through compression and deflection for optimal performance by essentially unlocking the airbags in the forefoot and heel, unleashing the power of the Zoom bags.

Dynamic Fit technology is also featured in The AIR JORDAN XX8, which uses internal straps to wrap up from the midsole and integrate with the laces for lightweight support that moves with the foot providing additional lockdown support and comfort.

The AIR JORDAN XX8 also features a high-performance, stretch-synthetic shroud that provides a sleek exterior, while a molded external heel counter is made of carbon fiber for lightweight support. A multidirectional 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 AIR JORDAN XX8 to provide an extra layer of support, stability and style for the athlete.

Anyone know where I can get these and how much they are?


CW is nice. Make them Low Cut, i might change my mind about these then.


Best cw so far, there will be a hot pair I'm sure that eventually drops, there not bad with jeans watch on YouTube


Horrible shoe, I watch unc vs duke, most of the unc players had their shoe zipped down, check espn for high-lites, this shoe must get super hot, they didn't learn from the 8s poor ventilation and how it cause athletes foot


what's with the camo things now a days its not really impressive... make me want to puke everytime i hear it.


Truly ruining the legacy of Air Jordans one crappy sneaker at a time...since 2009


These shoes suck. It looks like Jordan put a sole on some ugly socks, or decided to make a condom for your feet. These are the most pathetic sneakers ever conceived.


i didn't know the NCAA allowed teams to wear women's boots on the court!
