New Air Jordan XX9 shoes (photos)

Darren Rovell of ESPN has been tweeting pictures of the new Air Jordan XX9 shoes.  There will be two versions coming out with a sticker price of $225:

 

 

According to Rovell, Michael Jordan asked the audience an interesting question at the unveiling:

 

ESPN college basketball writer Myron Medcalf answered Jordan’s question through his Twitter account:

 

I think the Ferrari comparison is a good one.  Ferraris are fun to look at, but you will never buy one.

Air Jordans don’t fit into that exact category, but seriously, $225 for a pair of shoes is ridiculous.  Maybe buy a pair one time in your life, but I would much rather buy a pair of shoes, a basketball, some workout clothes, and train like a champion with the goal of making my high school or college team.
