Today Jordan Brand unveiled the 28th shoe in the Air Jordan franchise, the Air Jordan XX8. Legendary shoe designer Tinker Hatfield and Jordan Brand Developer Josh Heard led a team who worked hand-in-hand with Michael Jordan to create a new ultra-modern stealth design that takes cues from the Nike SFB.

Featuring more technological advances than any Jordan yet, the XX8 is the lightest Jordan to date and boasts a number of impressive design features including a “Jordan Flight Plate” that maximizes responsiveness of Nike Zoom units, internal Dynamic Fit straps, a stretch-synthetic exterior that includes Schoeller mesh and a molded carbon fiber heel counter. Standing at 8″ high, this is also the tallest Jordan ever created, though the zip-up portion easily folds down to reveal a mid-height shoe inside.

The Jordan XX8 will release first in Houston during NBA All-Star on February 15, 2013, followed by a nationwide launch on February 16. The suggested retail price is $250 USD.
