Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan XX8 has divided the bball sneaker scene in a big way this year leaving smiles on certain dials whilst sending other heads into a spin. Sure, with its big crazy zipped up shroud and less than subtle colourways it’s not that hard to understand why peeps can be frightened, but to us it is a mystical marvel, another blatantly dope earth mover by the man Tinker himself. Fear not those who have been shook by the XX8, Jordan Brand are peeling back the shroud to unleash the inner bootie and this black/gold specimen just balls so damn hard. Complete with Jordan Flight Plate technology and carbon fibre trimmings, how you liking these ballers now? We prefer the big freaky sock, but hey, you can win ’em all. Stay tuned for release info and check out more mean sneaks in Sneaker Freaker issue 28.
