It’s not that often that the official backstory of an Air Jordan retro release is revealed, so we may never know the true inspiration for this brand new Air Jordan VIII colorway. Suns, Knicks, and even Bobcats connections have been thrown at there to date. We’re going with the first one for now, as the Air Jordan VIII at large is actually relevant to said color combo what with the Suns/Bulls matchup that took place in the 1993 NBA Finals. Get the latest set of images on this “Suns” Air Jordan VIII after the jump and then tell us if you’ve got anymore speculative nicknames you want to slap onto this May release.

I'm liking these. More interested in these than the "bugs" with the extreme hype and such. Hoping these slip through the cracks and I can walk in and pick these up, no-line style. lol

Could be a Chicago Bears colorway with the blue and orange. Same town as the Bulls as well.

how could it be suns, it says deep royal blue for the color? theres no purple which i feel like would be the real indicator of a "suns" colorway....who knows though

If its the suns influence then jb is probably doing a once a year tribute to a team mj messed up perhaps. A la he cavs 4s last year. Just speculating

Look back at the Suns Jerseys from when MJ used to play, it does look blue, at least to me.

@S09442 Yeah it is a concept color scheme the 8's were the shoe that MJ wore during the 93 finals vs the suns. Except then he was wearing the black and red playoff version so these pay homage to chuck
