We named the Air Jordan XX8 SE the most underrated kicks of 2013 for good reason; in spite of shoe’s critical success, some people were still unwilling to give it any credit.  Maybe because they felt intimated by the Air Jordan XX8 that came before it or maybe they were afraid their friends would point and laugh at them for wearing something that wasn’t a retro or maybe they don’t care about things like comfort, stability and performance on the court.  Whatever the case may be, people are missing out on a fantastic pair of kicks that will only get better in the coming months as we eagerly await the Air Jordan XX9.

Anyways, over the holidays we got a pair of the Air Jordan XX8 “Flight Before Christmas.” While everybody was searching for Christmas Day kicks from Nike Basketball like the Nike Kobe 8 SS (we got those too), the “Flight Before Christmas” was a relatively easy pair to cop over the holidays. Does this colorway grab the attention of the more casual sneakerhead? Sound off in the comments below.
