As Jordan Brand athlete Ray Allen gears up for the pro basketball finals, fans can expect to see some championship-inspired footwear on the court. Jordan Brand has laced Ray with team-colored player exclusives with gold accents for both home and away games.
Allen will have several options of the Air Jordan XX8 to choose from at home and on the road. On the home court, he can choose between White/Black/University Gold or White/Gym Red/University Gold colorways. On the road, the options are Black/Gold and Gym Red/Gold; both include a fractal Elephant Print on the upper. The home versions feature Allen's logo on the inside of the shroud, while the away shoes features his logo on the tongue. The AIR JORDAN XX8 boasts an ultra-modern stealth design for elite performance, with more technological advances than any AIR JORDAN to date.
The AIR JORDAN XX8 – the most tested and lightest AIR JORDAN ever – has an industry-changing first: the Jordan Flight Plate, a Pebax® moderator plate that maximizes the responsiveness of Nike Zoom cushioning units through compression and deflection for optimal performance. The system essentially unlocks airbags in the forefoot and heel, unleashing the power of the Zoom bags.
The AIR JORDAN XX8 also features Dynamic Fit technology using internal straps to wrap up from the midsole and integrate with the laces for lightweight support that moves with the foot and provides additional lockdown support and comfort.
The pro basketball finals start on June 6.
