Nike un-veiled the basketball’s first high-definition show. The Jordan XX9

The sneakers designer, Tinker Hatfield spoke to USA Today about undertaking such an effort as keeping up with the Jordan tradition, while staying ahead of technology.

“I was literally thinking about designing more and more with computer technology in mind and I was thinking about pixels,” Hatfield told USA TODAY Sports. “High-definition? Sort of, yeah.”

The XX9 was introduced last Thursday in New York City. It features 25 million pixels on its performance woven upper. It’s crafted by Italian artisans using a two-headed jacquard weaving machine normally for high-quality labels or silk neckties.

Each pixel has a specific function.

OKC Thunder guard Russell Westbrook rocked the shoes this past weekend. The new Jordans go on sale to the public in September for $225.
