Opinion: Air Jordan XX Laser Lacks Appeal

Hands down, I’m not a fan of the Air Jordan XX (and it doesn’t change with the Laser edition). Yes, I know that it’s a Tinker Hatfield design, and I know that it’s some kind of a historical pair, but the design simply doesn’t appeal to me. Though, the Air Jordan XX, is in my opinion, the most futuristic shoe out of the whole Jordan signature line.

According to what was the inspiration for the Jordan XX’s look, they do remind of a cycling shoe, just larger and more basketball-oriented. The strap that covers the entire bridge of the foot and has a large Jumpman on it.

The thing that I most enjoy on this pair of shoes are that there are several details that remind of the Air Jordan ’85 05′ 20th anniversary promo when they were first released.

It’s all in the details for me.
