Jordan Brand Brings Flyknit to the Air Jordan XX
Flyknit construction may have originated with Nike proper, but the Swoosh’s Jordan Brand imprint has made use of the comfy knit, too. Last June the Jumpman introduced the Trainer 2 Flyknit before updating both the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3 with the material, and the Air Jordan 4 is reportedly getting the treatment in 2019. Before the AJ4 Flyknit debuts, Jordan is crafting a Flyknit version of another silhouette: the Air Jordan XX.
Aptly dubbed the Air Jordan 20 Flyknit, the unexpected release transforms the construction of the kicks for a decidedly contemporary spin on 2005’s Tinker Hatfield—designed original. Weirdly enough, these were apparently crafted with Carmelo Anthony in mind: Melo branding graces the insoles while other details include removeable ‘72023’ patches for both the olive and black colourways.
Stay tuned for more info and expect a release before year’s end.
