Air Jordan XX8 SE – Black – Metallic Gold
The rate of Air Jordan XX8 releases has slowed considerably in the second half of 2013-their rate these days no doubt preparing the sneaker world for their successor. And we’re not talking about the inevitable XXIX, but the Air Jordan XX8 Lite. Pictured here is the sneaker in a forthcoming black/metallic gold colorway that ends up looking like a much more conventional shoe than the Air Jordan XX8 proper. See a full set of angles on the Jordans with us below and watch our front page to figure out when they’ll be in stores.
Update: Jordan Brand has confirmed that this Black/Gold colorway is a sample and will not release to the public.

Damn. Hot damn. I mean, these look way much better than the first releases. Dunno what they been thinkin... they should have kept in mind that people wanted to LOOK like basketball players in Jordan shoes and NOT looking like WWE wrestlers. :P
These look like boots a little, and it is for this reason that they do, IMO, have a general fashion appeal. They are on my list for sure.
