XX8 Days of Flight: Air Jordan XVI

February 5, 2013 | 11

The Air Jordan XVI takes center stage for today’s XX8 Days of Flight countdown.

Air Jordan developed a magnetic shroud for the XVI, giving one shoe two distinct identites both on and off the court.

The use of patent leather on the toe box along with the removable shroud gave it the two-looks in one feel. Personally, I prefer to see them with the shroud on, as it gives them a distinct look while without it, it looks like just another basketball shoe.

What is your favorite Air Jordan XVI 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.
