For fans of the NBA, Christmas Day certainly provided ample game action to appease even the biggest hardcourt enthusiast. While a number of NBA stars unveiled new shoes and colorways, it was Russell Westbrook and his Air Jordan XX8’s that seemed to highlight the day in “alternate” fashion statements. Created by Tinker Hatfield and designed by Mark Smith, the new look featured an articulated print that mirrored the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Christmas Day uniforms. Stylistically, Westbrook wore the shoes with the shroud flapped down in the first half before zipping them all the way up in the second half. 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 – thus unleashing the power of the Zoom bags. The Air Jordan XX8 will be available in Houston only on February 15, 2013, and then nationwide on Saturday, February 16, for a suggested retail price of $250 USD.
