First let me say that the XXI's are one of the BEST "Air Jordan" shoes of ALL TIME. In terms of style, comfort, performance....I can't think of a better Jordan shoe EVER.
IMO the Jordan line started to go down hill after the XIII's (last time I bought a non-retro J) and I'm very pleased that the design has gone back to simple/classic form that defined the Air Jordan legacy.
The XIX and XX model were complete TRASH did not deserve the Jordan name or Jumpman logo on them. All I can say is that I'm glad that all the BS gimmicks (straps, lasering, patent leather, lace covers, etc.) are NOWHERE to be seen on the latest model. That's one of the reason's why I decided to purchase the XXIs.
THANK YOU TO JORDAN BRAND FOR RESTORING MY FAITH IN YOUR SHOES.
XIX, XX = PURE TRASH!!!
