“Suns” Air Jordan VIII Retro

May 12th, 2013 by | 16 comments

suns air jordan 8 retro Suns Air Jordan VIII Retro

Anyone here remember watching the 1993 NBA Finals between the Bulls and the Suns? Barkley and crew put up a pretty good fight, and if it wasn’t for a John Paxson three-pointer near the end of Game 6, the series would’ve gone to the seventh-game brink and who knows – Barkley might have a Championship Ring on his hand. While the colors aren’t entire of the PHX uniforms, this Air Jordan VIII is commonly referred to as the “Suns” colorway, pointing to the aforementioned Bulls/Suns match-up in the Summer of 1993. Cop these special Retros next weekend, or  see what’s available right now on eBay.

Unreleased Air Jordan Samples Through The Years

air jordan unreleased samples through the years Unreleased Air Jordan Samples Through The Years

Over the years we’ve seen some amazing (and questionable) colorways of Air Jordans and Air Jordan Retros surface on the web. In fact, there might be as many unreleased mock-ups as there are produced versions, but who knows what’s really stowed in the deep dark vaults inside the Jordan Brand headquarters and overseas factories? We’ve compiled a fairly thorough gallery of some notable Air Jordan sample colorways that have never seen the light of day at retail; some of these already have noted legends behind them, like the Air Jordan VI “Infrared” Retro with the flipped midsole and the Air Jordan V “Gold” that may or may not have been made for an employee, but some of the stuff we’ve come across cause us to question why the shoes were never released, or why they were created in the first place! Of course, this gallery isn’t a complete list of every unreleased sample, but take a moment to skim through the gallery below and let us know which unreleased Air Jordan sample catches your eyes the most.

nick cannon in air jordan viii Nick Cannon Throws Out First Pitch at Wrigley in Air Jordan VIII Bugs

Nick Cannon proved just how much of a cannon he’s got on him yesterday, throwing out the first pitch at a Cubs/Cardinals matchup. He also brought some Air Jordans along with him-the Air Jordan VIII “Bugs”. Now if he wanted to keep things really MJ with it, Nick should have went with the Air Jordan X as a little nod to Mike’s time on the mound but hey-we can respect the choice. Continue reading for the photos of Nick Cannon wearing his new Air Jordan VIIIs and let us know in the comments if you’re using yours for any cross-sport activities as well.
