Russell Westbrook Unveils Air Jordan XX8 ‘Christmas’ Colorway

By Jay Casteel   /   Published 12/26/12

While NBA teams rocked special edition Adidas uniforms on Christmas Day, some players rocked unique sneaker colorways as well. Among the highlights were Russell Westbrook's "Christmas" Air Jordan XX8's.

The alternative colorway for the AJXX8 featured an articulated print that mirrored the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Christmas Day uniforms. The superstar guard rocked the shoes with the shroud flapped down in the first half, before zipping them all the way up in the second half.

The Air Jordan XX8 is Jordan Brand's lightest ever, featuring the Jordan Flight Plate, a Pebax moderator plate that maximizes the responsiveness of the Nike Zoom units through compression and deflection for optimal performance by essentially unlocking the airbags in the forefoot and heel.

The Air Jordan XX8 will be available in Houston only on February 15, 2013; and then, nationwide on Saturday, February 16, for $250.
