In comparison to last year’s lackluster Air Jordan 2012, the Air Jordan XX8 has exploded out of the gate – with much of the credit going to OKC Thunder star Russell Westbrook. As the “chosen one” to carry on the torch of the Air Jordan legacy, Westbrook has elevated his game to new heights while keeping us interested with his sporadic Air Jordan XX8 on-feet sightings. Now that the cat’s out of the bag, should we expect to see Mr. Why Not? wear the XX8 on a nightly basis? That could be the case, as we saw him wear the Air Jordan XX8 in a ‘Black/Orange’ PE during last night’s match-up against the Houston Rockets (he didn’t have much traveling to do). These are indeed slightly different from the pair we should you last night as the upper shroud is a tonal black rather than a carbon-fiber seen in the pair last night. We’ve got a detailed gallery below so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more NBA Feet sightings!
This shoe is worth 250by far the best basketball shoe. The feel is insane. Jordan Brand did a great job on this one. I will be buying another pair.
Anyone under Jordan Brand has no chance of becoming an icon...thus Kobe and Lebron and DWade are all signed to something other than JB. I liked the shroud with the Carbon fiber print best...but collars still belong on shirts, not shoes.
This colorway is Fresh. sidenote looks like RWestbrook is already having a better Jordan Brand career than DWade...
Westbrook knows exactly how to wear them, and lace them up... Looks good! But still not for $250.00... :/
Don't like the fact that I see whoever wearing these have the collar slightly zipped down. Shoe must be super hot on the inside
