The public got its first look at the Air Jordan XX9 today, which combines what Nike is calling "the world's first performance woven upper" with the Flight Plate sole to create supposedly the lightest Jordan yet.

While the shoe will be hitting the hardcourt when the NBA playoffs begin this Saturday on the feet of Russell Westbrook and other Jordan Brand athletes, the public will have to wait until September to drop $225 on the initial release of the XX9s in Black/White-Gym Red and Black/Team Orange-Dark Grey colorways.
