The Air Jordan hybrid shoe will always be a polarizing entity for as long as the Air Jordan sneaker remains relevant. With so many purists of the sneaker game (and purists of those purists), introducing a redesigned model bearing the same name as the original is always a tough task. That same applies with automobiles and clothing – even the McDonald’s McRib Quickstrikes always seem to draw some sort of juxtaposition with the OG. October’s release of the Air Jordan 8.0 was a bit underwhelming to say the least, with all six Air Jordan 8.0 releases thus far sitting patiently on store shelves, but perhaps the ‘Aqua’ should draw some deserved attention to the shoe. Set to arrive this January, the Air Jordan 8.0 ‘Aqua’ will be a fresh new start for the Air Jordan 8.0 in more ways than one, so take a peek at these new detailed angles below and let us know what you think. via Kinetics.
Air Jordan 8.0
Not bad. I'll stick to my Aqua's tho. I'd cop these on sale tho. Just to make my Aqua's last a bit longer.
miiiiiiiiiiiight cop them jus cuz they da aqua's... nice lil twist to da original... i still need a crisp pair of original Aqua's tho
For the low low I will take a pair of these. We all know they ain't close to the 8's but if you have 8's and you want to ball in something that is the same but modern how can you actually not like these but say you like the 8's?
good for people who want play ball in aquas retros are trash for ball and dont think the retros nba dudes got on are store quality
i'm not feeling da shoe... sometimes shoes look better once u wear em, but this is not the case...see u at nike outlets soon next year.
Im F#*^ING hate these 8.0s! Aqua 8s are my favortite Js ever, they were the first ones I ever bought by myself in 3rd grade. These trashy 8.0s should be released in other colorways than the ones the retros are released in. NO AQUA 8.0s NO PLAYOFF 8.0s. Next its gonna be SpaceJam 11.0s THIS GARBAGE NEEDS TO STOP. get some new ideas JB. Sorry for the semi rant.
I would be more pissed bc then they would be called the 8s you idiot and those already exist... these aren't them by the way.
