Backstory of the Jordan Dub Zero

In 2005, things were a bit different for the Jordan Brand as Michael Jordan delved deeper into his final retirement and subsequently became a bit more removed from the newer generation of NBA fans. However, with a formidable roster of talent including Carmelo Anthony and Ray Allen, the Jordan Brand seemed poised to properly celebrate the 20th signature of the Air Jordan lineage.

With the impending release of the Air Jordan XX, which would ultimately celebrate the illustrious career of Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan collection. A hybrid would spawn, which happened to become the Jordan Dub Zero, and would ultimately celebrate the legacy of legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield.

Legend also has it that the original name of the Jordan Dub Zero was the Jordan Decoy as the shoe was designed to keep hackers and imitators from discovering the very top-secret Air Jordan XX design prior to its formal launch.
