Ask Michael Jordan 'WHAT ARE THOSE?!' at your own risk

During a Q&A session at Michael Jordan's basketball camp, someone was brave enough to hit Jordan, a legend with a legendary shoe brand, with a question that's been on everyone's mind lately: "WHAT ARE THOOOOOOSE?"

Jordan, being an old man who does not know what Vine is, answered earnestly with a pretty good burn:

"Hey, look man, I'm lost on that Vine stuff. What are those? These are XX9 Lows."

What are XX9 Lows? Apparently, they're Jordan's new shoes that haven't been released yet. So yeah, that kid just got hit with a reminder that Jordan has access to the good stuff.

In case you're not caught up on internet memes, a ton of people are recording themselves and going around asking people "WHAT ARE THOOOOOSE?" while pointing their cameras/fingers at their shoes. It all started because of this Instagram video where someone confronted a policeman about his shoes:

Which is to say: Jordan may be an internet meme, but he's way too cool for this particular one.
