The original Air Jordan XX8 was a finely tuned performance monster. From fit, to cushioning, to transition, the XX8 excelled in all areas on-court.

A new version of the XX8 is now ready to launch, and it's missing the defining aesthtic characteristic of the XX8: the shroud. If you've played in the XX8 though, you know the shroud had basically no impact on performance. So, if you prefer a more subtle look on court, this XX8 Lite should provide a similar experience. Check back for release details as they become available.

What do you think of this shroud-less version of the XX8?
