AIR JORDAN XX8 PE (AWARDS SEASON)
March 4, 2014
Jordan Brand fleece a couple of golden geese here just for their special mob of brand ambassadors to rep on court. Previewed on the Jumpman Twitter account yesterday, the two sneaks feature lavish gold accenting on the lace area, tongue and midsole, with gold-flecked icy outsoles chilling out down below. Bases are black or white and they look fully regal, with the clear inspiration being the black and gold Academy Award statues. FYI, did you know there is no confirmation on why the statues were nicknamed Oscars? Apparently the most accepted story is that an Academy librarian thought the statue looked like her uncle, who was named Oscar. What a banal way for a statue to get a nickname! This duo follows blinged-out Melo M10 and Jordan XX8s that toasted to the Grammys in January. Look for these latest Js on the NBA hardwood this week.
