    You didn’t like the XX9 lows? The BC cw was awesome.

    Admittedly in hand the shoe feels great but looks alone they look like any random team Jordan imo. Not bad but not a stand out

    Not a big deal- both are similar. Straps seem to be making a return on performance lines across the brands...also you missed one- XX2 PE had straps:tongue:

    This might sound strange but I remember when I first got my pair, I thought they smelled amazing right out of the box. In all my years of buying sneakers, I’ve never gotten a single pair that smelled as good as these XX9 lows, not sure what the hell they used on them.

    I say no. That’s the AJ28 midsole and outsole. Looks like a PE.

    IE, see post above...

    Lol. Really though, new shoe smell out the box is amazing. If they had a spray to keep it there, Id buy it. Most of you all know what Im talking about.

    Yeah but dude the smell of those XX9 lows were something else... If I remember correctly, Nightwing or some other Sneakertuber pointed this out as well. I don’t know what they put in them but they smelled amazing.

    Yeah everyone talks about these as wel haha.

    OG XIVs and XX9 lows apparently had the best smell of any Jordans.

    You got me! I forgot all about those XX2s. Hell, even after I looked up images, I still don’t remember them. I guess that shows how enthused I was about that year’s Jordan LOL

    The 8 is the only Jordan I like with straps. But I was a big Air Raid fan also. Those were everywhere back then.

    This is why I believe these are the 33 PROTOTYPE...

    As with any prototype, there are multiple versions working on any one part of the shoe such as the flyknit, straps, outsole, midsole, airbag, leather, etc. This is where weartesting provides the feedback as to what is working and what is not.

    This obviously isn’t the final version of what I think will be the 33.

    I hope that's not them. but, I do like that zoom and wud not b mad if that was the 33 sole. it's just the straps that make no sense to me. they dont belong imo

    They have the same shaped side panel as the X and the stripes near the laces like the X....

    It is a strange feature to see on a Jordan sig prototype. However, the straps might not even be on the final version. If so, I’d have to believe they offer an advantage in some way. That’s why weartesting is a part of the process: to see what works and what doesn’t and edit the shoe properly to maintain its function for basketball.
