SELECT Preview: Exploring the Air Jordan XX9

April 30, 2014 BY / 39


Beneath the woven upper of the Air Jordan XX9 lies another JB innovation, dubbed Flight Web. These webbed straps integrate with the lacing system to wrap your foot in a way that not only provides natural motion flexibility and lockdown, but also combines with the thin upper layer to helps to create a comfy and breathable sock-like feel with all the necessary support and stability.

Moving down towards the sole unit, the XX9 brings back the widely acclaimed energy return technology known as Flight Plate, but in new and improved fashion. Using the same combination of a Pebax moderator plate between Zoom cushioning units, the XX9 tweaks the formula by adding a narrow midfoot outsole bridge to connect the forefoot and heel for a smoother transition under foot.
