Do you remember the Air Jordan XX8 “Bamboo”? That pair first popped up at around All-Star time last year, but never made it to a retail release. Interestingly enough they’re back again-and it looks like they might actually be releasing this time around. Important to note is that they’re missing the leafy pattern on the upper, but they’ve still got that wood plate on the back side that was actually sourced locally in Jordan Brand’s native Oregon. Continue reading for more on these bamboo Jordans and let us know in the comments if you approve.
These are actually the only pair of 28's that I dont want to immediately set on fire. I like 'em, they're simple and elegant
if you unzip it and then fold it down its gonna cover the bamboo part anyway so... also it looks like sme kinda leather so if you do fold it down its gonna get some real ugly creases. it was a nice idea though.
@csbenji the heel doesnt get covered if you unzip it
Nooooo! Wtf happened to the safari print, black midsole and the ice sole? This wack compared to the first pics from last year! Disappointed.
I was'nt a fan of the 28 but these are fresh I would get these. Iwould like to see a picture of these zipped down though.
Are these really what people are wearing? Im pretty much in the sneaker game but these are not it for me. Unless you are Floyd Mayweather or in his profession, i don't see the reason to rock these. How do u even rock these without looking crazy? I'm clearly old school if this is fashionable.... To each their own....
@Bigga Jeans, black shirt, white jacket, a leather jacket. All kinda ways.
I wonder what color the inside is. Either way I will get my hands on these. I just wish they had the clear outsole like the prototype did a year ago.
