XX8 Days of Flight: Air Jordan XV

February 4, 2013 | 9

Continuing Jordan Brand’s XX8 Days of Flight is the overlooked Air Jordan XV donning the black/electric green colorway.

Modeled after the X-15 Fighter Jet, the XV sports a woven kevlar upper and radical protruding tongue.

The Air Jordan XV has also been looked at as the beginning of the end per se by some Jordan purists. It’s nothing new but there are those who believe that the Air Jordan I-XIVs are the only “true” or best looking Jordans.

Despite this, the XV takes the abstract design with its very recognizable tongue design. JB took a huge chance with the design but with the right colorways, the chance pays off.

What is your favorite Air Jordan XV colorway?

Jordan Brand is celebrating XX8 Days Of Flight and today is all about the Air Jordan XIV. Tag your photos on Instagram with #XX8DaysOfFlight and you might see yourself on ajxx8.com.
