The Good, The Bad & The Ugly is back, and yes, the Air Jordan XX8 is addressed. While scattered opinions place the shoe in any of the three categories, we debate this shoe and two more. What went where? Find out by reading and give us your feedback in the comment section.
THE GOOD- CLEAN COLLABS
Collaborations and animal print often register as played out. Pulling from both, Solebox avoided the cliches and came out with a clean classic. Drawing inspiration from within, this pack plays off the brandâ€™s original team up with PUMA in 2007 and winds up with a win.
THE BAD- â€œARMYSâ€ RESERVED?
The Nike LeBron 9 Low had lots of good colorways, but would these have been the best? Between the unreleased â€œLeBronald Palmerâ€ PE and this camo concoxtion it seems like the best makeups never reached retail.
By most opinions, the Air Jordan XX8 is an ugly shoe. Is that a bad thing? Maybe, but it could actually be a good thing. Sporting the riskiest look of any AJ in recent memory, the design certainly isnâ€™t for everyone and is marketed as such. With a solid week to look at it and see it play on court, has your personal opinion changed on this shoe you?
