2005 marked the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan. So with that, the Air Jordan XX was born. This was the first colorway released and it debuted during NBA All-Star weekend. They retailed for $175, and came with a mesh bag and a card. There were serveral cards made, each with a different logo on them. This was done to let people know the story behind some of the designs on the midfoot strap of the sneaker. They were put in pairs at random so there was no way of telling which one you'd get until you opened the box. This colorway also features an irridiscent look on the upper.
