Air Jordan XX3 (23) The Real Deal

After seeing catalog images, pictures of the soles, and even really small snap shots, we have a detailed look at the Air Jordan XX3. I know some hate the Jordan 23 and some love them, but they are a unique pair.

Friday, some fake images circulated of the Air Jordan 23, but looked almost the same to a legitimate pair. With the new pictures, you can see on the Air Jordan XXIII the design on the side features M and what looks like a upside down J from Michael Jordan’s autograph. Pictures thanks to Heat23 and Air-Randy.

  1. UPSIDE DOWN J!?! COME ON, U run a sneaker info website & u dont even know what Jordans signature looks like?!? good god, i knew this site was gettin to worried about advertising but didnt expect ignorance like this… Maybe doing lil more research before writing would benefit… peace to true sneakerheads… upside down j, lol… gotta be kiddin…

  2. hmm, so that's them. ahh yeahh… dem shits 3 of 10. i'll cop jus because i want all da numbaz, datz it!!

  3. Pretty cool. they don't look as bad as I thought they would look like. Not sure about the mini-signitures on the side but the rest looks pretty detailed and original.

    I think Brand Jordan knows that everybody is goig to buy these no matter what they look like cause they the last ones. I know I'm buying 2 pair or them (probably different colors) and I knew I was going to do that even after I saw the first pictures

  4. The M's on the side are how he signs the M in his signature. But if you turn it sideways it's the number 23. I don't know about the Upside down J thing…

  5. finally there here like a breath of fresh air!!! and i see many of u niggas hatin!!! but true fans of jb see this as the shoe to end your collection. It like since 84/85 jordan been making a statement with his shoe. So for the last ones to be him, his signature, his finger print that shit was genius, jordan brand did it agian!!!!!!!!

  6. i havent commented in about 2 months…but these shits, man…i dunno. They aren't as bad as the pics that leaked a couple months back, but they're still booty-boy kicks. I'll stick with classic retros

  7. when i first saw these (yesetrday) my initial reaction was:

    VOMIT!!! UNCONTROLLABLE VOMIT!! SPEWING EVERYWHERE!!

    today my initial reaction is this:

    NAUSEA. lol

    i still dont like em but something on em attracts me to them i cant front..

  8. MY PERSONAL OPINNION I THINK THEY'RE WACK! BUT YA 23 LOVERS ARE STILL GOING TO BUY THEM… SO DONT FRONT! I REALLY DONT CARE FOR THEM BUT I WILL COP MY SELF A PAIR AND YA CAN GET YA SELF A PR TOO @AGAINST ALL ODDS STORES NATION WIDE… PEACE!

  9. yea i like them, the shoe is symbolic. its like jordan is signing off on his legacy. the shoes look like some shit you would find on planet mars. there different, i mean its the 23's, if you want a classic jordan feel go and buy some damn retroes. im gonna get these and jordan wont be gettin no more cake from me. i have an idea, if people are tired of the crap jb puts out why dont you stop buying it. does that make sense to anybody?

  10. i got a cooment to nigger assassin, grow up dog! anyway them j's r good but i dont like the m stitching on the side, an all blk and red pair will do good i think

  11. bout time man. i'll get em better than i thought they were going 2 b. not 2 thrilled about em but imma get me a pair no doubt. if u a real 23 fan you'll get em and be proud that u did. stop faking

  12. Terrible. Just terrible. These look like they could appear in your local flea market. These are straight WACK!

  13. YIKES!!!!! I guess now they really are a "signature shoe!" Those are TERRIBLE! But I'm going to cop them anyway… just because, LMAO!!!!

  14. why the hell are people still saying this is the end

    You dumbass's the 24's will be out in 09, but these shoes are Very hott an I cant wait to see other colorways an PE's An SE's

  15. i heard someone say that j's dont look the same as they used to anymore cause jordan dont dont play no more.thats totally true the desighn inovation is the same but it dont seem the same cause you dont see him wearein them. i bet if he was still playin in these they would be the greatest thing jordan ever made.i was like hell naw they just fell off but then i say them highlights of him playin that pick up game with the bobcats and i was like damn them throwed and i remember before i couldnt stand the shoes then i thought to myself like damn it it jordan not the shoes….lol

  16. These shoes are FUGLY. Nuff' said.

    J's been fugly since #6

    Jordan 3's 4's and 5's are the bomb, all else are just straight FUGLY. Id rather cop some Huaraches.

  17. wtf is everyone talkin about those shoes are ass ugly man seriously if u like them ur just on jordan's nuts man the design of the shoe is horrible the only thing that's good about that shoe is probably the technology

    i was planning to cop these, when i heard they were going to be the last pair but after i seen these hell naw imma go get me some lebrons

  18. honestly i think these are horrible and look like somehting marbury made, if not him they look like and 1's and the signature on the side, is as gay as jordan hoodies with his face on it. Really im pissed the only thing that looks good is the sole.

  19. sad day in JB history , the midsole and sole itself is nice , everyone likes that part but they took a wrong turn on the stiching part

  20. UGLY ASS SHOES!

    Ha talking about staying fresh… nike shoes the makers of ugly ass jordans are not fresh. You people will be looked down upon if you wear “whites” to an event… girls won’t even look at you and if they do it’ll be like… haha he has nikes couldn’t afford real shoes.

  21. i think the shape looks like a 13 with a crazy twist not a bad lookin shoe shoulda been better but everyone had such a hype on it i couldnt live up to the expectations i dont like that red toe in the front

  22. These are piece of art. This MJ sign off shoe. MJ would've looked great wearing these. i dont like the tongue but overall great shoe. Cant wait to see a picture of the limited pairs. I will be getting a pair of the black and red colorway, thats automatic.

  23. Jordan Brand can not be FN serious. Screw whatever technology they put into the shoe. Whomever desinged this shit shoud be tarred and featherd along with everyone else who co-signed. All this shoe is a high top version of the nike edge crosstrainer / running shoe ( Just find one and you'll see). Nike and Jordan Brand need to really focus on giving us consumers some quality product. Half of the jordan retro releases are not true to size and run about a half size smaller and thats when you buy them from reatail stores i.e. eastbay, footlocker, etc. Weather you buy them and wear them or you just collect.

    It's your paper so you make your choice.

  24. I LOVE COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK COCK CHINESE COCK BLACK COCK WHITE COCK BROWN COCK RED COCK AND YOUR COCK

  25. I wonder if all of them will have the "MJ" initials stitched on the side panel or just this colorway? Because I'll be passing on these. Waiting until February for the Black/Red colorway.

  26. Wow…you guys are really going sick. It seems the purpose of this comment section serves no more. Let's try to keep focus on the kicks and leave your personal life out of this. Anyways…this is a very creative shoe. Though some may not agree, it takes its own definition. JB looked towards a different design and it's not that bad. Now for me…definately collector's item…no wear pair…let it sit and bring life to the closet. Overall..good look to the collection. 2008 get it right people…be safe.

  27. im actaully likin these the only bad thing i dont like is the tongue, it looks to simple and looks more like the dwade converse tongue

  28. Is it just me, or the tongue really flimbsy? honestly dem shits will prolly be hot in a a different color scheme.

  29. it doesn't even look like you could play ball in them they look kinda heavy and uncomfortable….what an ending

  30. They resemble XIIIs waaay too much imo.

    Nonetheless a they are very nice. The stitching I ould do without but does add a nice touch. IDK, maybe I'll get a pair and maybe I won't. I have to see em in person.

  31. what a joke.. what a dissapointment.. what a bad way to end this legacy, very upset this shoe does not complete anything but ugliest shoe even worse the the low XI's, this shoes Jordan Brand did not liver to its potential, its leaving on a bad note PERIOD.

  32. The MJ stitch should be white, the red on the toe should be grey or white, I can't wait to see other colorways

  33. They aiight, I have to see what other colorways look like. They should make the signature M's the same color as the shoe, or the 3m reflective to add a little flavor when the light hits em'.

  34. real talk they look like a red/blk crayola crayon creation something like my four year old niece drew up, man i love michael jordan (no homo) got every shoe I-XX2 but these will not be in my closet.

  35. Actually, I think this colorway will end up looking drop dead gorgeous, I know they will look 100000000000% better in person

  36. they iiiiggghhhhttttt…. and all u racist cracka's must of 4got who's shoe ur here 2 see (and what color is he?)

  37. Ay i'm wyte but i ain't hatin. these is the shits!!! why ya'll hatin on em? they da dam last jordans in da series. it's an end of a legacy. my opion dese is tight. i love the way michael desgined these.

  38. those are some of the fugliest things I've ever seen, they look like a mix of converse and starbury's shoes…

    but the box is dope though…

    HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

    JB needs to "Crank Dat Suicide"

    lol

  39. truthfully, i like em, only thing i would have liked to see is a wider, bigger tongue, and a wider shoe in general, they'll be great basketball shoes, but aren't that great of a sneaker to rock anywhere

  40. I agree w/above those fakes looked better. I was feelin what i had seen including the black and white pic and the pick of the sholes, they are hot as can be.

    That stupid signature shit on the sidepannel and that shiney black shit that curles up onto the forefoot really kill this for me, that contrast is just too much.

    I could love this shoe, just leave that sidepannel single color or diamond/check style and fix that terrible looking toebox area

  42. does jb think putting some carbon fiber, a shiny midsole, n nice box make a jordan shoe look like a JORDAN shoe now??? wat the hek, the 23s had to be crazy, n these r hot payless shoes…lol. ew

    …Sloppishizzle aka TwinZ BeatZ

  43. i nkow im probaly going to b the only 13 year old kid in detroit wearing them j's on my feet… lookin stupid but o well i still going to get them

  44. I can't believe noone has said these look like Iverson's. Because they do. the design is as tacky and unispired as the iverson 8s, where they just slapped a whole bunch of 8s everywhere.

    The overall build looks nice. But the stitching tile doesn't work for me. The simplicity and patterns found on the 20s struck a nice balance. busy and quiet working well together. This one's too busy for mine.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a straight color blocked design. Cool!

  45. all yall is straight cornballs. yea yall hate them now, but i bet if yall see jim jones or fabolous wit these on everybody wood be sackin. all of you are drones get a mind of ya own.

  46. YOU TELL EM AFRIKAN DIVA!! THATS WHAT I LIKE TO SEE, AN EDUCATED PROUD BLACK WOMAN!! ONE THING I DON'T AGREE WITH YOU ON IS THE SHOES LOOK GREAT LOL..

  47. This has a great box, innovative design, limited edition pricing…what more could you want from the New D. Wade shoe???

    …but really, they look ok. I'll have to see them in person.

  48. ^^ballin24_7^^ "i heard someone say that j’s dont look the same as they used to anymore cause jordan dont dont play no more.thats totally true the desighn inovation is the same but it dont seem the same cause you dont see him wearein them. i bet if he was still playin in these they would be the greatest thing jordan ever made.i was like hell naw they just fell off but then i say them highlights of him playin that pick up game with the bobcats and i was like damn them throwed and i remember before i couldnt stand the shoes then i thought to myself like damn it it jordan not the shoes….lol"

    Too MuthaFukin true!!!!

  49. ^^fraze^^ "and the signature on the side, is as gay as jordan hoodies with his face on it. Really im pissed the only thing that looks good is the sole."

    This is even MORE true!!!! Those hoodies are for sure the most wackest $hit I EVER seen Jordan Brand put out. That and those gay-ass Hanes T-shirt commercials with Cuba, but I know that's not JB affiliated–but still hella wack dammit!

    I'm not feeling the MJ signature on the shoe…..looks like a walking ad for Mickey D's instead. Big Mac, anyone?

  50. what the hell is wrong with the tounge they should make it bigger or stronger so that it could hold up jeans and put sumthing unique mabe a fresh kindof lace lock

  51. I think there spending way too much time on the design of the box then they are the shoe. As the numbers go up the shoes get more and more ugly. They need to start focusing on the kicks and come out with some hot shit or they'll be releasing retors of the origanlly hot ones from back in the day for ever.

  52. looking at theses j's makes me vomit….!!!

    jb needs to hire some real sneaker heads to

    come up ideas for j's….

    who agrees???

  53. Mr Randy
    Just in case you have forgotten, you are exploiting a Brand that only came into existence because of a “Nigger” and gets most of his support from other “Niggers”. In what century do you think you live in? Us “Niggers” have just as much money as you “Jews/ Spics/ Crackers”. The “Niggers” are the ones who waste their money by paying obscene amounts of money on shoes and clothes that took no more than 10 dollars to make. So to ATTEMPT to block “Niggers” out of you targeted demographic is just as ignorant as the TRUE meaning of a NEGRO! Get an edition of the dictionary published before the 80’s and try to learn pompous prick.

  54. Is it just me or do these shoes look like Ronald Mcdonald exclusives, with the M for mcdonald, and even the colour way, i need to see how these shoes look with jeans

  55. What a bad way to end your legacy !!! And whats up with all the M's….looks like McDonald's logos….I want to cry and trow up at the same time. GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD PLEASE !

  56. word technutt,i be catchin those commercials wit cuba tryin his shit on thinkin 2 myself " damn thats some gay shit" lol

  57. yo ur expectations are waaay too high just cuz theyre AJs… you guys want this think to come with GPS and suck your d**k too.

    I personally like the sole alot for its originality. and in a different colorway these have a nice resemblance to the 13s. this is a VERY nice shoe. nice job JB

  58. They look performance worthy, but way to simple of a design. They don't stck out fully other than the fact that it's an Air Jordan game shoe. The shoe does look to have some hidden benefits to it… It's the final Roman numeral Jordan

  59. Those suck, but with time it will grow on anyone, definitely will sell cause its the 23's plus I 'll still buy it cause they Jordans haha lol…

  60. i wanna see how everyone even those saying how ugly and how their not gonna cop end up coping once the hype grows on these.personally imma cop not the greatest but not the worst.

    sex.sneakers.and.videotape.>=]

  61. look your airness (not talking about joran neither you know who you are) you got them be happy sleep with the muthafucca's they're ugly and if people don't like them then they don't i'm a bigg fan of the jordan brand but the brand is falling off there's nothing tight about the shoe all of my lil jordan deciplies don't like the shoe the only way the brand is still sale's because of melo and the mexicans buying the team jordans… yo don't PMS over it the xx3's UGLY

  62. when it thought of the xxiii i was excited as hell and dey turned out to be so fugly these arnt that appealing for

    $230

  63. Everybody has their own opinion. And bitchin' about the colorway or this or that wont make them change anything. Remember when retros first came out? Nobody bought them. Now look. The 23s look like crap to me but they will-in the long run- turn out to be valuable. So, buy them or don't. JB will still make them and still sell them.

  64. these shoes suck…for the 23's i'd expect a lot more…these are just…blah. Jordans have really gone downhill after the 16s

  65. well when i first saw the black and white leased photo i thought they was weak but now that can get a better picture they starting to look okay but i still dont belive these shoes deserve to be the XX3s

  66. The shoe is very unique, I like it and to all who think the J is upside down, you don't know Mike signature maybe you need to do some more research and look at the pattern a little closer.

  67. It's funny how nobody remembers that Air Jordans are BASKETBALL shoes. NOT walking or casual shoes. Basketball shoes are NOT designed to be the best looking shoes. They're designed to be light, flexible and have to support the ankle. They're not as appealing as say the NIKE dunks or AF1's but they are AIR Jordans. Which means they only make one design a year, making each Air Jordan valuable. I know people who have spent thousands on NIKE dunks, saying "these are collectibles" when dunks are not as valuable as Air Jordans. I'm not talking about retros or any other jordan shoes, JUST AIR Jordans. I agree that AIR jordans have not been appealing for a LONG time now including the 23's but it's about having it as a "collectible" and not looking fly in them right?

  68. i got mine in a regular jordan box and are a 6.5 n boys but in a larger jordan box…bigger than mens…got em from pys. are they real?
