The New Air Jordan -- No, Really, It's Green

1/9/2008 12:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The latest Air Jordan sneaker has been unleashed, and despite what you might think you're seeing here, we're telling you -- it's a green shoe.
Michael Jordan's new Green shoe
Nike tells us that the Air Jordan XX3 is the first-ever basketball shoe in the Jordan Brand to be made with sustainable materials -- meaning it'll be around the next time MJ decides to unretire, whenever that is. It's coming out in a limited edition costing $230 which will only be available in 23 stores (sensing a theme here?) and then will be out wide -- for $185.

Hey, #1, thanks for the life, that was a good one!

MJ is a hottie and I'd do him in a second. As far as corp greed, I disagree. MJ deserves every cent he gets.

Ridiculous to pay $230 for baseketball shoes ( or any shoes)...and the people who will be buying them probably can't even pay their mortgage or their car payment...but BY GOD they will have their Jordans. CRAZY!!!!!!

Only a spat loving.. 'goober type' would probably love it. The Air Jordan XX3 continues the successful tradition by providing fans with a beautiful performance product that is lightweight, low to the ground, breathable, and maximizes comfort. A newly engineered, patent-pending, stitching machine delivers intricate detailing in the upper portion of the shoe. The low midsole profile allows players to be as close to the ground as possible and feel the court. Unique design cues such as the imprint of Michael Jordan’s fingerprint serving as the traction pattern on the outsole and his thumbprint on the back of the tongue lining bring to life the man that makes the franchise so special.

This Air Jordan XX3 was created with the environment in mind. Though it’s not completely “green,” they have done everything possible to create less waste and use no toxic materials.

You know what. To prove he is not greedy! He is a nice looking man by the way. Why don't he donate hundreds of
pairs to needy children. Give to the community that made you rich. Yes, the poor kids are going to find some way of
getting those shoes! Why not give them away. That way nobody has to lose their feet! Wake up America!

Anybody pays that much for shoes is a damn fool! Unless they can afford them then right on! But, he should donate
those shoes to schools and students who need them. Show me!

You're all a bunch of morons.

You spend your pathetic lifes following the everyday occurances of people you have and NEVER will meet, stalking their shopping paterns, dating theatrics, and family lives. WHO GIVES a crap about celebrities.

Kids do not get killed for their Air Jordans anymore. This isn't the 80's. Get your head out of your piss stained pants.

There are people in this wolrd who are DIE HARD shoe collectors - and there is also a subculture of people who resell them, for CRAZY profits. Don't knock it till you try it. Are any of these celebs making YOU money? Or just wasting your time. A limited shoe with a limited availability even makes you TMZ celebrity jock riders follow our addiction.

I hope you all get high off shoe glue smell!
