Would You Pay $250 for the New Air Jordan 28?
The newly released Air Jordan 28 continues to receive mixed reviews from sports fans and sneakerheads across the globe. Dubbed with the tagline “Dare to Fly,” MJ’s new kicks will reportedly be sold for $250 upon initial release. Jordan Brand NBA star Russell Westbrook is rumored to be the first player that will debut the sneakers on the basketball court in tonight’s Thunder vs. Net game.
NBA SI reports:
The Jordan XX8 features an all-black sleeve that covers the entire shoe, save the blue sole, and extends up to the mid-ankle. The sleeve opens and closes with a zipper that, when pulled down, reveals a neon green shoe with neon green laces, neon green lace holes and a black Jumpman logo on the tongue. According to Jordan Brand, the XX8 is the “lightest, most responsive Air Jordan of all time” and boasts “stealth” inspiration. “By the time you see us coming, it’s too late,” the company said. Filmmaker Spike Lee, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, designer Tinker Hatfield and Jordan Brand president Larry Miller were on hand to unveil the shoe.
The real question is: would you pay $250 for a new pair?
