Alright, alright. The Mavericks are NBA Champs, LeBron is still sans ring, Chris Bosh cried a lot. Moving on, here’s a look at yet another unreleased sample of the Air Jordan VIII Low; it features a White/Bright Cactus-Metallic Silver colorway not seen on an Air Jordan before, although it can be compared to last summer’s Air Jordan IX GS release, which utilized a White/Lemon colorway with a Metallic Silver midsole. This Air Jordan VIII Sample, like that previous Ostrich-skin sample we showed you, was destined for a Spring 2008 release, but Nike decided to scrap those plans – likely due to the fact that the only other WMNS Air Jordan VIII Low was one Air Jordan release that many of us just decided to forget ever existed. Bright Cactus is seen on the funky midsole graffiti as well as other accents on the shoe, like the ‘ring’ on the Jumpman logo and the graphic on the outsole. Ostrich-skin is also used for this sample, seen on the outrigger/strap unit. Check out the detailed images below and let us know if you’d like for these to release! via Kenlu.
