Today is Fat Tuesday, and even Jordan Brand is getting in on the fun. @Jumpman23 has unveiled Russell Westbrook’s latest Air Jordan XX8 SE PE, this time dressed for a Mardi Gras celebration on the court. Vibrant hues of purple, green and volt adorn this player exclusive, which you can see in full above. Let the good times (and the Thunder) roll!
The Air Jordan XX8 SE is nowhere near as polarizing as the original XX8.
There’s no Scholler mesh sleeve creeping up past your shin (when zipped up), no unzipped sleeve covering the entire heel (when zipped down), and there’s no YKK zipper running through the middle of the silhouette. All of the attributes that made the Air Jordan XX8 intriguing and unparalleled, at least aesthetically, are stripped away, but the XX8′s standout performance qualities truly lie within its framework.
The Jumpduck is back, this time on a new Air Jordan 5 PE for the Oregon men’s basketball squad. Bright green and yellow accents give this Ducks AJ 5 colorway plenty of pop, while the real standout feature is the dunking Duck logo found on the shoe’s yellow heel. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for all further info on the Air Jordan 5 “Jumpduck” Oregon PE, and let us know your thoughts on the player exclusive in the comments.
