Air Jordan 20

The Air Jordan 20 was released on February 19, 2005. The Air Jordan 20 celebrated the 20th model and 20th year of Air Jordan shoes as well as Jordan’s legacy on and off the court.

Performance and aesthetic innovation were at the forefront of the Air Jordan XX. For starters, the model featured an adjustable ankle strap made to mimic the feel of both high top or low top support. In addition, the midfoot strap utilized laser technology to graphically tell the story of Michael Jordan’s legacy. For cushioning, Jordan Brand introduced Independent Podular Suspension technology, seen visibly on the outsole and felt by all wearers.

The Air Jordan 20’s risky design was won over on many wearers thanks to its dynamite ad campaign. Using Spike Lee to tell the story of MJ to the next generation of hoopers, the chilling commercials certainly helped make the shoe hot. On top of that, Jordan Brand members such as Ray Allen, Rip Hamilton and Carmelo Anthony laced up Air Jordan XX PEs on court, while Mike Bibby sported AJ XX PEs in 3/4 and low top form.

While the Air Jordan 20 returned in retro form as a part of the Countdown Pack series, the AJ XX received the official retro treatment in 2015 in both OG and new colorways.

Tinker’s Back!

Tinker Hatfield was brought back to do what he does best – create the BEST Air Jordan shoes. The most noticeable feature of the Jordan 20 is the laser etched design on the lace cover depicting various past achievements of Michael Jordan and Air Jordans.

IPS Cushioning

The Jordan 20 was the first almost “Air-less” Jordan. You will not find a single Zoom Air unit in the Air Jordan 20. Instead there are 20 specially “tuned” Phylon columns/pods strategically located around the outsole reinforced by an internal shank plate. The rear pod has a specially modified Air unit incorporated into it. Quite simply, IPS cushioning is a hybrid shox system minus the columns and pebax dispersion plate. It works very well during wear tests. Its low profile gives it the responsiveness edge over the Jordan 19. However the traction is not as great as it can be.

As a mid top, the Jordan 20 was released in 3 OG colorways as well as 3 OG regional colorways.
