If you haven’t seen the movie “Space Jam”, we highly recommend it. In fact, it’s probably listed somewhere on an IMDB list of “must-watch movies for sneakerheads”, joining Spike Lee’s “He Got Game” and “Do The Right Thing”, “Blue Chips” starring Shaq, Penny, and a slew of other young stars from the mid-90’s, and more. These Air Jordan VIII ‘Bugs’ are one of the select few that has achieved its nickname from a film, but Jordan did some damage in them as well when he wore them briefly during the second half of the ’92-’93 season. A fresh new gallery of these AJ8s is just below so take a look and let us know what your favorite “sneaker” movie is.

Enough with these dumb nicknames already. They werent calling them "Bugs" or "He Got Game" when they came out. why do they have to "re-brand" them now?

Never been a fan of these, but the Playoffs and Aquas are another story. Looking forward to pics of both.

@DesmondDiggaDezDavis back in the day people rocked them with tucked like rabbit ears. That along with the color way may have also contributed to the name

 @jhoward  @DesmondDiggaDezDavis u guys are already telling me stuff i know lol no disrespect but again im referring to the person who wrote the article he said 'These Air Jordan VIII ’Bugs’ are one of the select few that has achieved its nickname from a film' what im saying is THIS SHOE WASNT IN THAT MOVIE AT ALL im not asking why the nickname cuz i already know i stated it in the first comment i knew lol but thanks guys

 @Da_Real_Big_Infinite  @DesmondDiggaDezDavis i know bugs was in the pic it was also a retro card i think and he was in the commerial for the 8s when martian tried to take all of them but im just saying why they say it got its name from space jam when bugs or noone else wore these in space jam?
