At long last we’re getting a glimpse at what the Air Jordan VIII will do this year with respect to the brand new colorways. With that being said there’s a bit of debate going on for this particular pair at the moment regarding which NBA squad the color scheme is connected to. Is it another “Knicks” look in the same vein as the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG that started the year off? Or is it a “Suns” one? The latter squad has less to do with the Michael Jordan story, but the palette of that team has been pretty present in the Nike Sportswear range as of late so it’s not too big a leap to imagine that influence bleeding over. See more on the Air Jordan VIII in this black, royal, and orange scheme below and tell us what you think of the pair in the comments.
Air Jordan VIII
Phoenix would make more sense than the Knicks.1993 was the year of the 1st 3 peat in which the bulls beat the suns in the finals. So history would be a big part of this shoe like last year cavs IV's.
Remember when nicknames came from color codes on the box?! If the box says blue: "Knicks". Purp on the box: "Suns". Stop trying to build hype by finding reasons to post J's every day!!
I think they are one of the best colorways for the 8s u can tell they put a lot of thought to get this done, simple colors but its how u put it together that make this 8s amazing I would go cop this in a heartbeat cuz I know they will be one of the best colorways for this sneakers well done in my books but I would have hold this for next year and re release the Chromes why not the bugs bunnys are comeing, the playoffs are comeing and the aquas why not give us a mainevent for the 8s, but ama trust Jordan brand they done us well so far lets see what happens
Yea these clearly drop in May, majority of the time when the production dates end, they drop 3 months after.
JBs plan for the VIII is smart: plenty of OG colorways for the purists and new colorways for younger collectors and those not bound to black and red. Not bad at all. Looks like a PE.
