The Air Jordan XX8 exists in a kind of cool modern design space that is willing to acknowledge the extent to which basketball sneakers are utilized both for performance and for aesthetics. It addresses that notion with the unique zip-down system, the full on zipped look providing a bit more coverage in-game and the unzipped look giving off a more lifestyle vibe. We’ve got some early photos of both after the jump so check those and and stay tuned with us for the upcoming February launch of the all new Air Jordan XX8.
