I’m no sneaker nerd, but even casual Georgetown basketball fans will likely notice the customized Air Jordan XX8s that the Hoyas will wear Friday against Florida Gulf Coast.

“NCAA Tournament Swag,” the team’s official Twitter account posted on Wednesday, while including these images. “Thanks to [Jordan Brand] for the customized XX8’s!”

“The Georgetown ‘G’ logo will be placed on the inner lining of the bootie that reveals itself when worn un-zipped, while more logos are present on the footbed of the outsole,” Sneaker News reported.

Guard Jabril Trawick was apparently already wearing XX8s at the Big East Tournament last week, although not the Georgetown models.

Trawick also included an image of his new pair on his own Twitter account.
