If the Air Jordan VIII Aqua traveled 19 years into the future, it would see its ‘doppleganger’ in the Air Jordan 8.0. Featuring some structural upgrades like the breathable mesh panels and Flywire-laden crossing mid-foot straps, the Air Jordan 8.0 captures both the nostalgic flavor and new-age design that has been the formula for most of Jordan Brand’s non-Retro releases over the last few years. Set to release this January, 2012, the Air Jordan 8.0 ‘Aqua’ features the paint-splatter bumper that extends to the midfoot, which doubles as a spring plate for performance-friendly push. We’ve got additional images for you after the jump, so take a look and let us know if this ‘Aqua’ colorway provides some ‘umph’ to this new model.
Air Jordan 8.0
People keep saying "THEY JUST RELEASED THE RETRO AQUA'S"...gtfoh...how many times have they dropped the Altitude 13's, Taxi 12's, Black cement 3's in the passed few years? get outta here with that "just released b.s....DROP EM AGAIN...fudge these btw...hooping purposes only playboi :P
jordan should hire new people to do these updated versions of classics. I coulda done these wayyy better
These are nice, they're not a bad idea to cop espically if your real aquas have any kind of paint chip
Not bad. I have the retros but I'd cop these if I didn't. Best colorway of the 8.0 by far. Still nothing close to the classic tho.
These actually look good, its probably the best out of all the OGs they tried to make an updated model to.
these actually look aiiiiiight.. doubt if i copp'em tho... JB still need to retro da REAL aqua's tho
pretty sure they are actually $150..not that much of a difference but it does put some distance between it and true retros..
I actually sold my aquas for $40. My friend saw them and asked what size and then he asked how much do you want for em so i just gave them to him right there for $40. im not into sneaker collecting like you fags, i just buy whats right. my friend usually wears these shitty ass ugly ass 90's but i gave him some heat... btw, we were in gym class so i had extra shoes :P
call me patrick cause i must of been sleeping under a rock but when did they "just" release the retro jordan 8?
07 donkey. it's way too soon to be dropping them again. There should be at least 10 years in between retros. Too much other stuff that hasn't dropped in a while.
