Nike unveiled the Jordan XX8 today to mixed but ultimately intrigued reviews. With the zip-up shroud a la Shawn Kemp's Reeboks from back in the day, they're creating a lot of fervor, but it seems like they're well on their way to joining in the long list of iconic Jordan brand shoes.
The new Jordans are obviously something very different than we're used to in the Jordan line, but they've been known to mix things up over the years.
Apart from the fact that it might be strange to play basketball with them unzipped, as the shroud would be flapping around as you run up and down the court, they seem to be more or less agreed upon as being good, stable shoes. And why wouldn't they be?
When zipped up they kind of look like a football player with his cleat taped up to his ankle, which is an interesting feel, but they zip down to reveal the green upper and tongue like the alien that bursts out of John Hurt's chest in Alien.
