It may lack the shroud from the original Air Jordan XX8, but the SE edition features all the same performance advances of its predecessor. That means that the same benchmark-level cushioning and transition, thanks to Flight Plate technology, is once again seen here.

This stripped down XX8 is available now at Nike.com in three colorways, and retails for $150. Check out Nike, Inc. for more details, and check back soon for a full performance review. Testing is already underway, and first impressions are that they are every bit worthy of their XX8 name.
