If the Air Jordan VIII Aqua traveled 19 years into the future, it would see its ‘doppleganger’ in the Air Jordan 8.0. Featuring some structural upgrades like the breathable mesh panels and Flywire-laden crossing mid-foot straps, the Air Jordan 8.0 captures both the nostalgic flavor and new-age design that has been the formula for most of Jordan Brand’s non-Retro releases over the last few years. Set to release this January, 2012, the Air Jordan 8.0 ‘Aqua’ features the paint-splatter bumper that extends to the midfoot, which doubles as a spring plate for performance-friendly push. We’ve got additional images for you after the jump, so take a look and let us know if this ‘Aqua’ colorway provides some ‘umph’ to this new model.

carrier classic recap summary1 NCAA Feet: UNC vs. Michigan State   Carrier Classic Recap

College basketball fans were in for an amazing treat when #1 ranked UNC faced off against Michigan State atop an aircraft carrier in Coronado, California. Dubbed the Carrier Classic, this sporting event was a special way to honor the members of the Armed Forces on Veterans Day; the significance of the game seemed paltry to the true purpose of November 11th, as thousands of military veterans as well as President Barack Obama were in attendance, celebrating the remembrance of our nation’s most courageous individuals in a unique way.

Both UNC and Michigan State took the outdoor court wearing the Carrier Classic collection uniforms and sneakers, but also spotted were a number of notable sneakers that were clearly from the players’ own collections; The Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’, Air Jordan V ‘Wolf Grey, Air Jordan XIII White/University Blue, Air Jordan 2011 UNC PE, and the Nike Zoom Kobe VI were spotted alongside the Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 and Air Jordan 8.0. Check out a full recap of the game and the awe-inspiring outdoor basketball court below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more NCAA Feet features as the college basketball season rolls on! via Yahoo!.

Jordan Brand/Nike Basketball ‘Carrier Classic’ Collection

jb nike bball carrier classic collection Jordan Brand/Nike Basketball Carrier Classic Collection

Earlier today, Sneaker News showed you the Air Jordan 8.0 and Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Supreme from the Carrier Classic Pack – a set of sneakers that will be worn by the players of the UNC Tar Heels and Michigan State Spartans during Friday evening’s season opener. Alongside the two sneakers is the Carrier Classic Collection by Jordan Brand and Nike Basketball; both team jerseys feature the digital camouflage detailing with special team-specific graphics on the rear side of the jersey. Both jerseys are made with recycled polyester; for a point of reference, each full jersey uses thirty-six plastic bottles. The Carrier Classic jerseys are just a precursor to a lengthy plan set by Nike and Jordan Brand; in 2011, they expect to double its usage of recycled polyester, diverting more than 440 million plastic bottles from waste landfills. In addition to the Fall 2011 NCAA uniforms, the Spring 2012 Platinum Elite uniforms will continue usage of recycled materials, with its Elite short being made entirely of plastic bottles. Continue reading for a detailed look at the Carrier Classic uniforms and kicks and be sure to tune into the game tomorrow at 7:00 PM EST.

The UNC Tar Heels and the Michigan State Spartans will square off this Friday evening in San Diego, CA. What makes the game so special? It’s being played atop an aircraft carrier. Seriously, that’s a whole different level of ‘cool’. Not only does UNC and MSU open its season, but the game festivities itself is a gesture honoring the veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces; seating is limited to just 7,000 spectators – one of which has been confirmed to be the president himself. The game, dubbed the Carrier Classic, will feature the Tar Heels (a Jordan Brand school) and the Spartans (a Nike Basketball school) wearing select colorways of the Air Jordan 8.0 and the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Supreme; we’ve detailed both before, but this midnight, the Carrier Classic Pack will be available for purchase. The two shoes will be sold separately, but are both given the Carrier Classic Pack designation for their role in the iconic game. More images below, so take a look and hit up Nikestore tonight to get yours.

Air Jordan 8.0 – Playoffs + Georgetown | Release Reminder

Combining a classic sneaker design with new age technology is a formula that certainly looks good on paper. It started with the Air Jordan Alpha 1, which featured a retooled silhouette of the Air Jordan 1, followed by the Air Jordan 2.0, replacing the embedded Air with the full-length visible variety. In comes the Air Jordan 8.0, a new vision of the original Air Jordan VIII envisioned with minimal seams and Flywire technology. The Air Jordan VIII is noted for its lock-down straps at the midfoot and the hectic mudguard design, and the upcoming 8.0 version slightly alters those benchmarks with thinner, Flywire-stabilized straps and a new paint-splatter detail, finishing off the ‘point-oh’ transformation with ease. The Air Jordan 8.0 will make its official debut tomorrow at Jordan Brand retailers in the classic Black/Red ‘Playoffs’ and a team-based White/Navy variety, so check out these new images below and lock in your pair now from yellownsxt on eBay.
