Standing out next to the more straightforward designs of typical hardwood footwear, the Air Jordan XX8‘s zippered shroud allows for a plethora of bold looks for the otherwise stealth-inspired silhouette – as evidenced by the Christmas Day edition (donned by Russell Westbrook) and the player exclusives created for Oak Hill and Montrose. The latest illustration of this is the upcoming “Carbon Fiber” edition of the Tinker Hatfield- and Josh Heard-designed Jordan Brand flagship. A nod to the brand’s roots in carbon fiber performance, the kicks make use of a carbon fiber-like pattern across the entirety of the synthetic shroud while Bright Crimson tones adorn the midsole, laces and mesh bootie within. Complete with a tonal white outsole and the silhouette’s signature Flight Plate, the “Carbon Fiber” Air Jordan XX8 is set to drop this Saturday, April 13 at Jordan Brand stockists for $250 USD.
