For the NBA Finals, Jordan Brand has revealed the Player Exclusive colorways of the Air Jordan XX8 that Ray Allen will be wearing. The home colorways feature a design similar to some of the PEs that Allen has worn during their playoff run but with more gold accents. It gets a little bit crazier – in an awesome way – when it comes to the road colorways. We’ve seen the fractal elephant print before on the Jordan Brand Classic XX8s, but when you can say those are sedated in comparison to these red/gold and black/gold versions, you know Jordan Brand had a fun time at the office when they were designing these.
The Air Jordan XX8 has had such a love/hate relationship with sneakerheads everywhere, but there is no denying that this is one of the most comfortable and technological advanced Air Jordans ever. And who better spokesperson to rock the XX8s – sorry, Russell Westbrook – than the man we pegged as the greatest Jordan Brand athlete of all-time?
