air jordan xx8daysofflight winners Air Jordan #XX8DaysOfFlight Winners

It appears that the massive “XX8 Days of Flight” set of Air Jordans given away by Jordan Brand has finally begun to make its way into the hands of the winners. You’ll recall that entry involved snapping a pic of yourself on Instagram using #XX8DaysofFlight wearing the Air Jordan model corresponding to that day. The black and green sneakers have popped up across Instagram, as the lucky Air Jordan enthusiasts who received their pairs have been eager to show them off (and it looks like Jordan Brand unknowingly selected one user to receive two pairs). Now that the pairs are out there, it will be a test of will power to see who ends up keeping these one of a kind sneakers in their personal collection and who ends up taking the “other” route to cash out, although the 1-of-1 factor might be to tough to let go! Check out most of the Air Jordan “XX8 Days of Flight” pairs that have been doled out right after the jump and tell us in the comments which pair is your favorite.

wale in air jordan xvii lightning Wale in Air Jordan XVII Lightning

While you wait around to see whether or not the Air Jordan IV “Lightning” materializes in 2013, Wale has that angle covered as far as Air Jordans go. The rapper recently showed up to 106 & and Park taping wearing a lightning-colored Air Jordan of old-the Air Jordan XVII from back in 2002. And given his long-standing sneakerhead status, we have the feeling that this is something that’s been sitting in his closet for a minute rather than a random Flight Club purchase for the NY trip. See all the photos of Wale with his Lightnings on right after the jump and tell us if you’ve gained some more respect for the MMG rapper with this most recent wear.

Directly inspired by Michael Jordan’s love for jazz music, the Air Jordan XVII features musical notes molded into the upper of the shoe, which played right into the grown-up businessman motif of the Air Jordan XVII original release (the shoes came with a dang briefcase). Get a load of the Air Jordan XVII from the ‘Black/Neon’ Collection below and stay tuned for more!

Classics Revisited: Air Jordan XVII Low – White – University Blue (2002)

AIR JORDAN LOW WEEK PART 2

Finishing off this week of Classics Revisited feature of low-top Jays is the UNC-inspired colorway of the Air Jordan XVII Low. The shoe doesn’t look much like a low-top, but that’s because the internal bootie extends outward up to the ankle, giving the shoe a mid-cut look. Jordan actually wore several PE colorways of the Air Jordan XVII Low during his Wizards days, and we even recounted the Lightnings when he hilariously missed that wide-open slam-dunk during the 2002 NBA All-Star Game. Performance-wise – the XVII is recalled by ballers as being one of the best. The Air Jordan XVII is considered to be the best Air Jordan of the non-Tinker area, as it seamlessly welded a number of concepts like Jordan’s love for golf and jazz music into one classy design. More of this classic Air Jordan Low below, so give it a look and let us know if these are in your collection!

Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? continues with another memorable moment in Michael’s career, but this one carries an air of infamy rather than one of legend. We’ve covered Michael’s 55-point outburst against the Knicks and his 3-point barrage in the ’92 Finals, and even that quirky moment with the ’12′ jersey resulted in one of Michael’s best games of his career. Tonight, we’ll focus on one of the not-so-MJ moments – a head-scratching blunder that unfortunately happened on one of the most televised games of the NBA Season – the All-Star Game. Check out this latest ‘Was It The Shoes?’ moment below and get filled in on this piece of Jordan history!
