Air Jordan XX8, Packed With Technology
The Jordan Brand is just fresh off releasing their latest Air Jordan XX8 ($250 USD) shoe, which includes a ton more technological advances than any other Jordan model to date. The release date for the shoe will be on February 16th, 2013 and is actually the 28th release in the shoe’s franchise history. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the XX8 features the Jordan Flight Plate, which is a Pebax® moderator plate that fully unlocks the power of the Zoom bags inside. Other performance mods include Dynamic Fit technology, combining the laces and internal straps for added support. The black upper is made of a stretch-synthetic material that incorporates Schoeller mesh (A Swiss fabric commonly used in motorcycle jackets) and the external heel counter is made of a strong and lightweight carbon fiber. Just felt like I described a sports car!
