AIR JORDAN LOW WEEK

If there ever was an entry into the Air Jordan lineup that could benefit from a slimmed down version, the Air Jordan VIII would be it. We’re not slinging mud on the good name of this model but let’s face it, the sneaker is sort of a standout amidst the sleeker Tinker designs surrounding it on the timeline, a bulky beast that looked like it was built for anything you could throw at it with that strapped up exterior. Granted by the time the Air Jordan VIII Low did arrive the original silhouette was already far removed from being a true performance choice, nonetheless enjoying the lifestyle lane as the latest of Air Jordan’s to rock the convertible look on its second life-cycle.

Unlike the other lows we’ve showcased in this section throughout the week, the Air Jordan VIII Low actually arrived with an OG colorway in tact. The 2003 introduction of the low started enough like its predecessors in the early 2000’s, with a white and chrome combo unlike anything Mike ever got near as far as Air Jordan VIII’s in his Chicago days. After a few months though things took a turn for the traditional, and the Air Jordan VIII Low was blessed with the ‘Playoffs’ black and red based combo shown above. The most noticeable switch up from the Air Jordan VIII to the Air Jordan VIII Low in terms of the beloved Playoffs colorway was the blue used in the OG getting toned down to a sort of navy tone for the low. Further, the outsoles of each reveal a switch up in crazy camo style patterning made famous by the VIII. Hit the jump with us to get all the views of the Air Jordan VIII Low ‘Playoffs’ as well as the Air Jordan VIII in white/chrome, both from 2003, and let us know which was your favorite across the week from this killer string of Air Jordan Lows in Classics Revisited.
