On Thursday, Nike took a step into the future with its latest innovation.

The company unveiled a pair of Air Jordan XX9s, and it believes the shoes will be revolutionary.

According to Nike, the latest design is the first of its kind. The Air Jordan XX9 features "an evolved Flight Plate coupled with the first-ever performance-woven upper." The upper "provides structure, support, interior comfortΒ and exterior abrasion resistance."

What does that mean? The shoes were designed to fit each foot for maximum comfort.

Bleacher Report's Lance Fresh was at the New York press conference and took a picture of one of the shoes:

The shoes will be available in time for basketball season this fall as they are set to be released in September.
