SLAM JUNK? New Air Jordan XX8 Kicks Universally Panned ‘Should Cost $25’

THECOUNT.COM "News You Can Count On!" - December 27, 2012


The new Air Jordans XX8 are finally here! But most folks are saying the costly kicks are pure junk! Something with Michael Jordan’s name on it being called cheap? Come again?





The new Air Jordans are here — officially, the “Air Jordans XX8,” for those who like to mix it up, Arabic and Roman style — and the reviews are … not good. “Shroud” up, and they look like basic black rain shoes that should cost $25, or about 10 percent of the Air Jordan’s $250 price tag. Shroud down to reveal a neon-green interior and they make for what might be “the ugliest thing ever.” Whatever their aesthetic problems, the shoes will see their NBA debut tonight, when Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook wears them to play the Nets at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
