Had Nike not moved forward with the Air Jordan line after MJ’s first retirement, the Air Jordan VIII would have been the last model of the signature line. The cross-strapped model with wild graphic prints on the mudguard is simply one of the most visually stunning Air Jordans ever created by Tinker, and tomorrow we begin the next wave of Retro Eights as the original “Bugs” colorway hits Jordan Brand retailers. These are likely to disappear fast, so don’t forget yours by copping a pair from shoejocky on eBay.
Air Jordan VIII ‘Bugs’
White/Hyper Blue-True Red-Flint Grey
Those suns/Knicks and playoff 8s go way harder , I regret buying these shits got hella creases already I never talk about the quality on jordans but deez are wack as fuck its been 2days n my shits be lookin like 8.0s n shit
These are CLASSICS ... The history that Mike achieved while wearing these are epic. Please people, save these for the real enthusiast. Cop em because you want em, not because of possible heat value.
Jus seen my homeboys pair... Quality is kinda bad... Still wanna cop da knick 8s tho... Hope they drop da chromes
these aint reaching london till may 11th smh on a good note we wont be getting cardboard underneath the inner sole....we received these in GS already and they didnt have the cardboard in them
Btw, if you buy retros to hoop in, ya crazy. Better off buying something new like LeBrons, KD or Kobe
Man, I'm laughing at the comments y'all been posting... I don't resell shoes, this is my first pair of shoes I've tried to sell. But I get it about ppl who resell.... Anyway, I gotta size 10 retro 8's if anyone wants to buy em lol
Don't pay 225 for these people. I heard the quality was nothing but ASS with that crumbly fuckin suede
SIZE 9,9.5,10 AVAILABLE!! GET EM NOW FOR THE LOW $225 SHIPPED,$215 IF GIFTED PAYMENT . EMAIL : ANGELSLUV69@GMAIL.COM
yeah the quality on these are weak there is actually cardboard under the insole lmao nah but hope they step it up for the playoffs and aquas
My size was still on shelves around 12 o clock on 34th street , so I copped . Hypebeasts probably had bigger things on the list then this release
For a lot of haters they sure sold pretty fast, lucky to get these and Lebron elites.. No foams, sold in 2 min online..
I can't wait, I already copped a SOLEBANDZ wristband to match with them. Check them out at www.solebandz.com
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite bugs bunnies and all 8s retro or og both had a little cardboard in the sole and many other famous shoes also do it conforms to your foot as you wear them and don't ever hate on the jordan 8
Lmfao you resellers need to stop, you not making real cash my dude. You only gained 200 if you made all your sales
@Born2fly Throw in the fact we just dropped $160+ for them (retros anyway), I couldn't even begin to think about playing anything in them.
@LaidBack_T Lol I got mine around 4PM at a local Finish Line. Only had a size left.
All Js, espc OG color ways are gonna sell out fast regardless... So far da only J dat didn't sell out quick were da crimsons 3s
These are an easy pickup for people that still go into physical stores. Just left the mall and every store has them.
Lol yeah. I only use my jays for style. Basketball i use kds but once i get my grapes in 2 weeks ill be copping adidas basketball gear with my money throughout the summer.They have great stuff. Besides the next jordans that ill be buying come out around holiday season. my birthday is 11-23 and then christmas next month, how lucky am i? Lol
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite I can still get Crimson 3's and Photoblue 9's at my local Footlocker
@Born2fly Lol I too use KD's for basketball, and working out. I haven't fucked with Adidas in a long time, maybe I'll give them a check for training. Lol I hear that man, I'm 12-9. You're on the better side of that cusp of being too close to Xmas than I am though haha
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite doesn't help they looked too much like the Slim Jenkins!
