The Air Jordan XX9 is the perfect shoe to rock on Instagram. Why, you ask? If you want to stunt on the ‘gram, there are a few things you absolutely need. One, you need some dope kicks, obviously, and it’s hard to top the XX9 in 2014. Two, you need a sneaker that looks good in both long pants and shorts, and it absolutely has to appeal to the sneakerheads out there who are cuffing their pants. (And if you aren’t, step it up.) Finally, it has to hit at the right time. The XX9, thanks to a decision from the Jordan Brand to move the release up from All-Star Weekend this year, has certainly done that. Cold winter weather always feels better with some heat on your feet.
This sneaker sports the first-ever performance-woven upper, as well as an evolving Flight Plate, Flight Web, and even a mid-foot shank that’s been improved upon with what JB is calling a tendril. All of that tech comes together for one of the year’s best shoes to play ball in. No small feat. This sneaker is also a standout off the court…as you can see by the following images.
With the “Blackout” version of the XX9 releasing this Saturday at Champs Sports — and you really don’t want to miss that one — we’re showcasing how unbelievably dope this particular shoe looks on social media. It has all the ingredients, enough to make even Russell Westbrook stop and take notice. Here are Instagram’s Hottest Pictures of the Air Jordan XX9.
