With the Air Jordan XX8 set to launch this weekend, the Jordan Brand has set up shop in Houston with special 'Dare To Fly' installations. In addition to some of the colorways we know are releasing, there are a few samples on display, including the interesting 'White Perf' pair pictured here.

When launching the XX8, Tinker Hatfield made it clear that we'd see Jordan Brand play with patterns and materials on the shoe. This pair features a heavily perforated white shroud, woodgrain heel detail and translucent outsole.

What are your thoughts on this look? Do different design strategies and material selections change the way you feel about the XX8?
