Following a preview of the Air Jordan XXX, we're now able to offer a closer look at the milestone model. The anniversary-marking shoe is an amalgamation of a variety of influences. From keystone moments in Jordan's career to the brand's evolution over the years, the XXX is a fitting representation of achievements come full circle.
The silhouette is defined by five main components: height, toe, traction, material and fit. Jordan's request to designer Tinker Hatfield to "make [the shoe] look fast" is accomplished via a first-of-its-kind knit collar and XXX graphic along the heel and forefoot. A smooth toe piece fashioned by Mark Smith using a new printing technique offers unparalleled breathability.
Materials have always been critical to the success of Jordan silhouettes. As such, the XXX uses a combination of woven, knit and printed fabrics, where each plays a crucial role in select portions of the shoe.
The Air Jordan XXX will be available globally on February 12 at select retail stores and Jordan.com.
