Air Jordan XXI (21) Red Suede Prototype

Our friends over at Counter Kicks recently displayed this red suede Prototype of the Air Jordan XXI (21). The shoe’s buttery suede upper is complimented by an interesting ventilation apparatus that’s stitched into the XXI’s lateral side. If you hit the jump, you’ll note that the shoe was nicknamed the Jordan ELV8 — presumably to obscure or downplay the importance of the shoe before it hit retail. How do you feel this Prototype version of the XXI compares to the release version?
