In 1993 Nike released the Air Jordan VIII, culminating the end of the first epoch of Michael Jordan’s career and sneaker line. The post-Three-Peat, pre-first-retirement, pre-baseball era, that is. Featuring a bold, strapped-up design with unique graphic detailing, the Air Jordan VIII would prove to be a distinctly ‘90s sneaker, now synonymous with the era it was born. It’s crazy to think of now, but if Michael hadn’t come back to basketball and Nike hadn’t decided to continue the line without him on court anyway, the VIII would have been the last Air Jordan. What would the sneaker world be like today if there were no more Air Jordans after 1993? It’s a frightening thought. In this edition of Jordan 101, we’ll take a look back at the history of the eighth—and fortunately not final—Michael Jordan signature shoe.
