Jordan Brand XX8 Days Of Flight: Air Jordan XVII

We are half way through another week in the Jordan XX8 Days Of Flight. Today, we take a look at the Air Jordan XVII.
Originally released in 2002, the Air Jordan XVII became the first Air Jordan model to come debut in a Washington Wizards inspired colorway. Due to MJ returning to the NBA in 2001 and playing for the Wizards, no Chicago Bulls inspired colors were released. They retailed for $200 and were the most expensive basketball sneaker at the time. The three high top colorways all came in a special suitcase along with a cd-rom you could put in your computer that showed how the seventeenth signature Air Jordan shoe came about. Here is what Jordan Brand had to say about the Air Jordan XVII:

"The jazz-inspired XVII was the first Air Jordan to incorporate Tuned Air and a TPU heel stabilizer. A removable mid-foot strap allowed the laces to be concealed, catering to one’s individual style. It also arrived in its own metal briefcase. Break out your ‘seventeens’ for Day 17 of XX8 Days Of Flight."

In 2008, the first Air Jordan 17 Retro was released as a part of the Jordan 6/17 Collezione "Countdown" Pack. Other than that, we have yet to the Air Jordan XVII return. Rumors have been swirling the past few years about a possible Air Jordan 17 Retro release however, nothing has come about. If the Air Jordan 17 Retro is announced to release, I will be sure to update the 2013 Release Dates section (if they will release in 2013) and let everyone know.

 For now, enjoy the images below of this sample black and volt green colorway of the Air Jordan XVII made exclusively to celebrate the Jordan XX8 Days Of Flight Collection.
