We’ll have a much more in-depth look from the Jordan XX8 launch event, but for now, here are the first images from Jordan Brand, unveiling the latest from the Air Jordan line. And here’s part of the official press release from Jumpman:

Today, Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc., unveiled the AIR JORDAN XX8, the 28th shoe in the AIR JORDAN franchise. It will be available in Houston only on February 15, 2013, and then nationwide on Saturday, February 16, for a suggested retail price of $250.

The AIR JORDAN XX8 boasts an ultra-modern stealth design for elite performance including more technological advances than any AIR JORDAN to date. The AIR JORDAN XX8 – the most tested and lightest AIR JORDAN ever – has an industry-changing first: 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, unleashing the power of the Zoom bags.

Also featured in The AIR JORDAN XX8 is Dynamic Fit technology that uses internal straps to wrap up from the midsole and integrate with the laces for lightweight support that moves with the foot providing additional lockdown support and comfort.
