What’s the best part about a Scholler mesh shroud? Hoopers would argue lockdown, fashion forward thinkers would say a blank canvas. Luckily, you get both on new takes of the Air Jordan XX8. From classic elephant print to progressive camo colorways, check out the new looks below and give us your favorite in the comment section.
I wish I could buy these shoes. I think there pretty dope. But I don't have time too stand in line forever to wait to see if I might get a pair. And I hate fools that buy them all up and try to resale the mofos for twice the price when they don't even step their fat ass the court. And me, a true baller wants to use the dam things for what they were meant for. Smh! Sorry just had to vent! But I'm tired of this BS!
The only ones I really like,which I really love, are the original colorway. Absolutely beautiful since I first layed eyes on them. Everyone hated on the Jordan 2012's design, and I predicted that once I rocked mine everyone would want a pair. I still wear mine and still get hella play on those shoes. Same thing with the Jordan XX8's guaranteed. Plus my swag is off the chain so people follow what I do anyway.
as an owner who can now make an informed recommendation: BUY THESE SHOES!!!
...and even if you hate them: GO TRY THESE ON!
... if you still hate the look after you've tried them on, at least you'll ONLY have that to b*tch about LOL
just really wish they did't cost so much I like the design and they're very comfortable but $250 is steep for me if I had a job i would of copped those stealth's :-(
Gotta be a tranny to want to cop these. Only reason people grabbed them or "like" them is because Hatfield designed them. Frauds.
The "Elephant Print" colorway reminds me of the red "Air Bakin"s, which I'm not sure is a good thing or a bad thing...
I liked these shoes from the start, so I couldn't say "these are growing on me" sh!t haters say when these first released
Out of curiosity does anyone think that NIKEID may get these? I could go for a nice Black, Red and White colour way for my ball squad!
shroud down fo.sho...
happy 50th to mj.. gotta be the shoes... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3M32ZPlOmwQ.
They also have a bred colorway like the Knicks above... growin on me a little...Doese anyone know if they sport TRUE carbon fiber not that "look like" BS they been hittin us with on the XIs?
they all hard. hopefully lame ass hypebeasts dont scoop them all before i get a chance to see these in person
I was just taking another look at those. They are dope. Real dope.
swag is off te chain tho?
@Grandiose_Prime I hate those. lol
@DoctorLoads What does Tinker have to do with it? Half the people that buy Jordans don't even know or care about who the designers are. What a poor reason for trying to get at people who genuinely like the shoe. Why can't it just be that?
@DoctorLoads i disagree also, people like them just because they like them
@DoctorLoads i'm gonna disagree. I'm the biggest Tinker groupie there is... and although Tinker had a huge hand in last year's model as well - I thought they were gimmicky and sort of irrelevant. That said: these are definitely not for everyone, but as pieces of design, I think these deserve a lot of respect.
@Thugz Cry Too i'm thinking they went back to limited numbers... seems to happen every time they make something that Tinker considers "special"... i.e. the 11s and 23s
@YellowingSucks Probably not. Might've been a PE. But you never know though.
@NeilMacDonaldUnderwood i dont think so they price would be too high, but it would be cool though
@JABZ215 picked up a pair yesterday and it is definitely real carbon fiber. The materials used are really nice, but the craftsmanship on the pair I got is another story. I still planning on getting many more pair though.
@filthymouth116 They aren't even that bad. Some of the designs seem a bit busy, but you cannot front on the ele[hant, Knicks, hardwood ot gold camo pairs. THIS is what people said was needed (a design) and now you've already started complaining about it. LOL
You would be on me too, just like your on my comment. Learn to spell. sMh.
@jason_ess Honestly, my original comment was a little misleading. I'm pretty sure that was their "ASG" colorway, which was probably very limited. They did good though by making the first release of the XX8 a limited release, because most cats will just see the tweet saying "the Jordan XX8 has sold out", which will hype 'em even more, due to the "it must be dope if it sold out!" mentality... I actually don't think the shoes are terrible, but I don't play ball at all anymore, which is the only time I would wear a shoe as slim and tight as that shoe, which is pretty much the case with all post-2000 b-ball shoes.
@Thugz Cry Too and that ends up fueling the demand... because people kinda think they MIGHT want them... and then can't get them... and then they want them MORE. pretty genius actually.
@NeezyProbably the only ones i'd try and get, too.
@GuilleAguirre42 I was thinking the same thing, the ID option would put the shoe at well over 300 hundred easy! I just have a bad feeling that JB is going to release weird colours (colours irrelevant to my team colours) or release sick colour ways that hype beasts will go crazy for! I honestly don't want to pay those reseller prices of $400+!
@filthymouth116 elephant* / or*
@Thugz Cry Too copped! added to the collection of boots pic.twitter.com/M05Wp6lX LOL...
and don't get it twisted, this shoe is NEXT LEVEL comfy. the forefoot cushioning is OUTTA HERE bro!
@jason_ess lol no problem, it happens to the best of us.
@Thugz Cry Too and please excuse my ADD ass. you kinda just told me you haven't bought them. my bad LOL
@Thugz Cry Too i dunno dude - try to find the regular Black/Green CW online and available in your sz. for sale at MSRP. It's not as easy as you might think. I haven't hit the mall yet, to see if they're really like GONE gone, but I will in a few.
But remember last year? I think the YOTDs were basically the only CW that sold out somewhat quickly. Every other CW drop pretty much ended up on sale reduced.
And I have wide feet, so I'm hoping that the shroud just makes them LOOK slim. Have you tried them on already? Or did you cop?
@YellowingSucks And just as we spoke on these, it is confirmed to be a upcoming release!
