    After a 4 year hiatus, Jordan Brand brought back Tinker Hatfield to help design the 20th anniversary Air Jordan. Upon first sight, one may think it's a hideous looking sneaker. The floating ankle strap was a new feature among any shoe at the time. The giant velcro strap was becoming less and less popular as fans wanted the laces to be shown once again...However, after it was all said and done, the XX emerged as one of the greatest Jordan shoes in the line. Tinker saw something that only his eyes could see at the time...

    Never cared much for the XX's..mainly due to the gimmicky ankle strap, but I love the cushioning and surprisingly they look okay with jeans on. [​IMG]

    LOVE the quickstrikes and the stealths. Wish I had a pair. Would never wear them casually though.

    Man I need some more XXs... Dope shoe imo, the strap is awesome, all the history on it is perfect for the 20th installment. This is the only pair I have, fornow.

    Too many guys over analyzed this shoe on looks alone. Wearing them to play ball in provedtheir worth. One day, in the not too distant future, these will be in high demand.

    Love the XX.

    I agree with DannManns. The not too distant future will prove these to be in high demand and a classic model.

    The QS and the Stealths are the only pairs that appeal to me.
