AIR JORDAN XXIX - Released 2014
As a pioneer of innovation for nearly three decades, the Jordan brand once again pushed the envelope with the Air Jordan XX9 — the world’s first woven basketball shoe. Drawing from Italian tailoring, the shoe had an entirely woven upper and set a new benchmark for the lightest Air Jordan ever.
Inspiration aside, the true drive behind the design was to attain maximum performance. A reengineered Flight Plate added explosiveness. An added tendril improved heel-to-toe transitions. A Flight Web fit system gave players superior mid-foot lockdown. This shoe wasn’t built to change the game, it was meant to change an industry.
