We know that the unveiling of the Air Jordan XX9 will go down this upcoming Thursday, but we don't know much about the shoe otherwise. This video trailer, even based on the name alone - "Tailored for Flight" - may give us our first hints of the shoe's theme. 

In the video, we see a tailor marking, cutting, and sewing what appears to be the upper of the sneaker. Russell Westbrook then enters his shop to pick up the shoes, nods in approval at ths off-screen sneakers, and says, "Let's save these for the playoffs."

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think about these first hints about the shoe. Are you any more or less interested now for the unveiling?
