Air Jordan XX
The Air Jordan XX (20) was released in 2005.

"Welcome to the future", was one of the leading slogans in the advertising campaign for Air Jordan XX. Laser etched lace covers and the brand new I.P.S. (Independent Podular Suspension) technology made up for this somewhat bold marketing.

Tinker's back
Tinker Hatfield returned to the driver seat when it came to the design of the XX's. Finding inspiration from cycling shoes and motorcycle tires he created a shoe that celebrated the 20 year history of Air Jordan's. On the heel you would find the figures 85 and 05 embedded in the mesh and the lace covers were laser etched with a massive amount of symbols representing different stages in MJ's and AJ's life.

I.P.S.
I.P.S. (Independent Podular Suspension) was a brand new suspension technology developed for the AJ XX. A solution where individual pods supported the foot in key areas - yep, pretty similar to the Shox.

Here's what Jordan Brand had to say about the XX's:
