Was it Duke pride or has Jay Bilas been under a rock for the past two weeks? The ESPN college basketball expert said he’d never seen the cutting edge performance shoe with the zipper during an extended shot of Davante Gardner’s ‘Blue Camo’ at the foul line, but the Air Jordan XX8 has been everywhere (including former employ Dwyane Wade’s alma mater Marquette) of late. The next stop is your feet, as the blue edition is joined by yellow and red thermal print camo designs Sneaker News showed you during the 2013 NBA All-Star festivities, to make up the Air Jordan XX8 ‘Color Pack’.

Japanese Jordan Brand retailers expect these along with the black/green edition on Saturday, February 23rd, so be sure to check Sneaker News to find out if the red and black Jordan XX8 makes a sudden appearance at US stores.
