An Air Jordan VIII in a classic Knicks colorway sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? No need to dream anymore because it appears that a Black/Orange/Blue colorway of the Air Jordan VIII in indeed headed our way in 2013. We’ve pondered the thought of more Air Jordan Retros with Knick tie-ins because of Carmelo’s arrival to the Mecca, and finally we’re seeing that come to light – although this colorway isn’t a true tit-for-tat replica of the orange and royal blue. In fact, the shade of a blue is closer to a navy, and the grey heel panel adds some interesting contrast as well. We’ll have more release info for you as it arrives, so check these out below.
Damn yo i swore everybody was hating on these in other sites now i come here everyone likes them damn lol
Mike gave them knicks WORK! in those conf finals! This kick is just a beaut', CW and concept. (whatever u want to call them)
sun's VIII's!!! these dope!! bout time we got sum pics!! don't hate on these. aqua VIII's will be out this fall!!
Brighter pictures please, so I can really decide. I told myself I was going to get every Air Jordan 8 this year but these I can do without. I wonder if any 8 lows are coming out this year
Not bad but JB is ass juice if that heel is not 3M. Why waste that cool material on them spizikes...
welp my cypher is complete for the year aquas, these, chrome, and playoff 8's, fire red and laney 5's, toro and lightning 4's, the steel 10's, and the laney 11's. If i could squeeze in the green glow 4's that would be dope too
Wow Im surprised. Im a die hard Knicks fan so ill have to cop. But damn they def could have made the Colors way brighter
At first I was like wow. Then I saw the retarded chenille Jumpman and 23 on the front. Bad color scheme. Totally takes away from the shoe in my opinion. I bet JR Smith is happy, no matter how heavy these beasts are
These writes are so retarded these are are suns and have been rumored for awhile but w.e. im just glad to finally see them
@Darrell_NC exacctly! i miss those days so bad! i was still in school with no job, but i was able to rack up the $140 and get the aquas a month after release. a MONTH they were on shelves in the same mall that's getting mobs of 300 people every release now. hypebeast era = 2012-20??
@JFresh_136 there was the suns 8 rumour a while back
@DynamiteDiscoDanny R.I.P. to da homie
@DynamiteDiscoDanny You seriously still think Aqua and Chrome 8's are dropping this year?
@DynamiteDiscoDanny like for the wrestling nod lol
@hobbyhob meant to release in may
@iamromierome what are u crazy these are dope af
@DesmondDiggaDezDavis thank you
@zamieo Looking at them again they def maybe the Suns the colors are to dull to be Knicks
@WoopsieGuy @hobbyhob the same month as the playoff 8's ..that would be a hard one .. I probably would choose these if i cant manage to get them both. Plus the grape 5's..
@AljosaCikojevic Well my taste in J's seems different from yours because these is wack AF & the Knicks is trash.
