During a live reveal on Jordan Brand’s official website, co-designers Tinker Hatfield & Mark Smith debuted the Air Jordan XXX, a shoe that not only celebrates the history of Jordan Brand and Michael Jordan’s contributions to the game but also boasts about being a high performance shoe for Jordan Brand’s biggest star of the moment, Russell Westbrook.

Designed to be lighter than the Air Jordan XX9, the Air Jordan XXX comes equipped with a Mr. Cosmos image designed by Hatfield on the shoe’s heel, a woven upper and a Speed Plate that was “refined” from last year’s model which may have been the simplest Air Jordan design since the original I’s back in 1984. The toe cap of course features the legendary Jumpman logo and all of the tech requirements had to be signed off on by Jordan himself.

The Air Jordan XXX will hit retailers next month. We’ll update this story as more details emerge about the 30th signature show in the most legendary PE line in sneaker history.
