After Dez Bryant showcased a new Air Jordan 20 that later was being called the ‘Playoffs’, we kind of figured they would eventually hit retailers. Plus Jordan Brand was sending them to a ton of their athletes and associates in a way that they were promoting them early. If you wanted your own pair, good news since we now have a release date.The Playoff Air Jordan 20 is a new color scheme to hit the shoes. Using a black leather base for the uppers, white is added on the medial sides, outsole and on the heel. Both colors are again placed on the midfoot strap with white being used for the base and black for the graphics.
The Air Jordan 20 is inspired by an expensive trumpet, racing boots, and motorcycle tires.The shoe is dressed in a mixture of Black, Stealth, and Varsity Red color scheme. Featuring a Black nubuck material throughout the upper, with patent leather overlays, hints of Varsity Red sitting atop a Grey outsole. The silhouette was designed by Tinker Hatfield, while the laser detailing was designed by Mark Smith. Throughout the shoe are symbols that represent MJ’s stories that true JordanHeads would only know.They feature an all black color scheme with grey outsole and red inner lining, as well as plenty of patent leather across the upper. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the concept behind these are an expensive trumpet (musical instrument), racing boots, and motorcycle tires. They may seem weird looking or even ugly at first, but tend to grow on you, as the feature seem to become much more interesting. The design on the midfoot strap is modeled after the trumpets. Hatfield had visited with master trumpet maker David Monette. Monette’s “presentation trumpets” are beautiful and expensive musical instruments that had elaborate cut-outs and engravings. Nike’s laser expert, Mark Smith, was brought in to design the midfoot strap. The final design is a complex tapestry of symbols representing MJ’s experiences and stories. Each symbol is a cryptic puzzle that only die-hard Jordan fans can deduce. The XX is truly unique, in that it has a revolutionary cushioning technology called Independent Podular Suspension (IPS) system, as well as a free – floating ankle strap. Other technical specifications include leather, patent leather or nubuck uppers with laser-etched highlights, a phylon midsole supporting twenty I.P.S.(Independent Podular Suspension) “pods” on the outsole, and an internal shank plate in the midfoot area.This original colorway of the Jordan XX is considered the best of the series, and one of the most liked over the past decade. It’s sleek black upper with subtle red and black accents made them an instant classic. But when they return in March, peoples’ perspective might change a bit.The re-release has been spotted with a new look. Gone is the all black laser printed midfoot strap. This time around, the print is accented in gold, making it pop a lot more, and less subtle than its predecessor. Another alteration is the nubuck/patent leather combination on the upper, instead it will now be made up of leather and patent leather.
