Jordan Brand‘s 30th Anniversary has cashed in on some rare Michael Jordan memories. The “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1s referenced a time MJ broke a backboard in an Italian exhibition game and the Air Jordan 7 nodded at his second championship with a remastered take on Cigars and Champagne. Now the Air Jordan 8 is coming into prominence for its own 23rd Anniversary and the Jumpman will nod at the Chicago Bull’s first trio of championships with the Air Jordan 8 “Three Peat”. Available on October 24th, the Air Jordan VIII sees a simple white perforated leather on the side panels coincide with contrasting black while the usual terrycloth circular logo is replaced with a unique hoop scribble to reference the Larry O’Brien trophy. The accent colors of Infrared 23, Bright Concord, and University Yellow all represent a fallen foe during the first three-peat. The Lakers (Yellow), the Blazers (Infrared), and the Suns (Purple). What do you think of this pair? Just incase you can’t wait until later this month you can grab this release now on eBay.

Hold up ,I'm confused on the hypebeast meaning or definition of the word so to say ,I thought a hypebeast was someone who buys whatever is hyped or trendy , you know like ,supremes yeezy or ovos, you know ,"all that this is whats hot shit" , those are hypebeast from my understanding , but I didn't know that wanting a shoe from your childhood ,"such as Jordan's with Nike air on the back " was being a hypebeast , I thought that Shit was called nostalgia ... Hmmmm learn something new everyday I guess

Well, sir, OGs tend to be seen as trendy. Folks that wouldn't know an OG from a new colorway unless they were told all of sudden are fiending for a pair of sneaks they otherwise wouldn't have cared about. The OG label gets smacked on a colorway and the hypebeast eat it up. Meanwhile you got the old heads that do go after the OGs for nostalgic reasons. Now they're force to compete with a bunch of hypebeast hipsters who are purchasing because they've been told these are the it thing. With that said, both you and @vinoman are correct.

Hype beast, yeah probably. For an OG who buys only what they like and not just because something is hyped up, no. Myself for example, there are OG colorways that I didn't like then and still don't like now (Olive 9s). Anyway, I get what your saying. I can't stand all the sneaker hype and look for the day when sneakers aren't the it thing anymore. By the way, these are kind of an OG colorway. They are a prototype colorway created during the original run that were never released. Just like the Pre-Grape/Hornet 5s.

I love the fact that everyone is trashing these. Makes my purchase much easier that Saturday. I don't want any of you in my way for these!

Looks cheap another BS colorway but it's better than constantly releasing the same retro. They just need to slow up.

Nice shoe ... but unless I see Nike air on the back of the Jordan 6 this winter , I won't be buying Jordan's until February of next year , even though the aqua 8s were my first pair of jays ever , honestly I really didn't want them , but shit , mom ask me did I want them when we was at foot locker back then , hell I wasn't going to say no
