The latest Michael Jordan sneakers have been unveiled for your delight and delectation.

The Michael Jordan XX9 is the latest in a long line of sneaker collaborations between Nike and Brand Jordan and we can safely say they are going to sell like hot cakes.

Unveiled in New York Thursday, key designer Tinker Hatfield explained that the XX9 looks to echo the latest modern technology:

"I was literally thinking about designing more and more with computer technology in mind and I was thinking about pixels.

"“High-definition? Sort of, yeah," he told USA Today Sports.

And he was certainly true to his word with the XX9 reportedly featuring no less than 25 million pixels on its woven upper - and the theory transcends style to substance too:

"What's great about the woven technology - it stays in shape," said Jordan brand head of marketing, Brian O'Connor:

"Leather pulls, but this doesn't. You get a new shoe every time. It never loses it's elasticity."

This special, never before used technique, has allowed the team behind the sneaker to create what they are claiming is the lightest Air Jordan ever.

So how much does all of this set you back?

The Michael Jordan XX9 will be on sale for around $225 as of September 2014, but you can see them in action as early as this weekend when OKC star, Russell Westrbrook, dons the shoe for his team's first game of the NBA Playoffs.

The tailored effort certainly gets a thumbs up from GMS, what do you guys think? Worthy of the Jordan Brand?
