Air Jordan XX8: The 28th edition. Designed for the 2012-2013 NBA Season, first worn by Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder. NOTE: It will be available on February 15, 2013

 

The AIR JORDAN XX8 continues to inherit inspirational cues from the legacy of Michael Jordan combining innovative technology and premium materials set to inspire those that consider themselves the best at their level.

The AIR JORDAN XX8 boasts an ultra-modern stealth design for elite performance including more technological advances than any AIR JORDAN to date. The AIR JORDAN XX8 – the most tested and lightest AIR JORDAN ever – has an industry-changing first: the Jordan Flight Plate, a Pebax® moderator plate that maximizes the responsiveness of the Nike Zoom units through compression and deflection for optimal performance by essentially unlocking the airbags in the forefoot and heel, unleashing the power of the Zoom bags.

Also featured in The AIR JORDAN XX8 is Dynamic Fit technology that uses internal straps to wrap up from the midsole and integrate with the laces for lightweight support that moves with the foot providing additional lockdown support and comfort. (via Nike.com)
