Air Jordan 20 (XX)
Tinker Hatfield came back to design the monumental Air Jordan 20â€™s. Hatfield had designed the Air Jordanâ€™s III-XV shoes and had been convinced to come back for the XXâ€™s by the die hard Air Jordan fans around the globe who wanted him to create a new look for Jordan Fans to play ball with.
Hatfield came up with a design that featured laser etching and a very simplistic look. Here is the official description:
Upper: Full grain leather and Nubuck upper with detailed laser etching brought to the midfoot to celebrate the history of Air Jordan Footwear. Integrated midfoot performance strap combined with a hidden lacing system offers a lock down performance fit. Heel ankle support system offers customizable support while the memory foam-backed collar lining cushions the foot. Asymmetrical toecap offers durability in the key area, protecting against toe drag.
Midsole: Full-length fabric wrapped Phylon midsole houses a new I.P.S. (Independent Podular Suspension) technology. Individual pods form a responsive midsole that supports the foot in key areas. Internal shank plate offers midfoot and arch support.
Outsole: New I.P.S. technology is integrated with the outsole raised herringbone pods. These pods not only create a unique cushioning system, but also offer traction in key performance areas. The outsole also incorporates traction grooves inspired by motorcycle tires. The 20 herringbone pods on the outsole celebrate the heritage of the Air Jordan franchise.
Profile: Celebrate the past and anticipate the future with the Air Jordan XX shoe.
