Air Jordan VIII “Suns” – Arriving at Retailers

air jordan viii suns citysole Air Jordan VIII Suns   Arriving at Retailers

Dropping next weekend is the first Retro colorway of the Air Jordan VIII – a mix of Black/Bright Citrus-Cool Grey-Deep Royal Blue that has adopted the “Suns” nickname. The connection between the Suns and the Air Jordan VIII is that this is the model that Jordan wore during the ’93 NBA Finals, downing Barkley and Suns in six games. Although Deep Royal Blue isn’t an exact match to the rich purple in the Suns unis, we can definitely assert this colorway to that 1993 match-up! More photos below, so take a look and be sure to keep your eye out for these on May 18th as these are beginning to arrive at retailers like Citysole.

Air Jordan VIII Retro “Playoffs”

April 22nd, 2013 by | 33 comments

air jordan viii retro playoffs Air Jordan VIII Retro Playoffs

The Air Jordan VIII will always be remembered as the final Air Jordan shoe Michael wore before his sudden retirement. He certainly got some good use out of the shoes thanks to the epic 6-game battle between the Bulls and Charles Barkley’s Phoenix Suns, and alongside this past weekend’s “Bugs” release and these “Playoffs”, Jordan Brand even has a “Suns” colorway coming to more or less commemorate that amazing showdown. The current focus is indeed on this OG colorway though, with “Playoffs” being the appointed nickname for the shoes that Michael wore for the most of the postseason, and while a release date hasn’t been confirmed (likely June, considering the Suns are dropping in May), these are definitely at the top of the radar for future sneaker pick-ups. Enjoy the new detailed gallery below and stay tuned for more updates.

Air Jordan VIII “Bugs” – Release Reminder

April 19th, 2013 by | 45 comments

jordan viii bugs reminder 2 Air Jordan VIII Bugs   Release Reminder

Had Nike not moved forward with the Air Jordan line after MJ’s first retirement, the Air Jordan VIII would have been the last model of the signature line. The cross-strapped model with wild graphic prints on the mudguard is simply one of the most visually stunning Air Jordans ever created by Tinker, and tomorrow we begin the next wave of Retro Eights as the original “Bugs” colorway hits Jordan Brand retailers. These are likely to disappear fast, so don’t forget yours by copping a pair from shoejocky on eBay.

Air Jordan VIII Low – Mike Bibby Sacramento Kings “Away” PE

Mike Bibby and Derek Anderson are two Jordan Brand athletes that have dominated the low-top Air Jordan PE category throughout that era of the brand. DA’s pairs don’t really come across us often as Mike Bibby’s does, and although we’ve seen the Air Jordan VIII Low bearing his “10″ before, we get a rather interesting view of the Purple/Black mudguard and the mismatched inner lining of the shoes. It would’ve been amazing if the inner lining was given the Sac Kings treatment as well, but that’s a process a bit too painstaking for a simple PE, don’t you think? More photos below, so take a look and check out the listing from snkrpimp on eBay.

Air Jordan #XX8DaysOfFlight Winners

It appears that the massive “XX8 Days of Flight” set of Air Jordans given away by Jordan Brand has finally begun to make its way into the hands of the winners. You’ll recall that entry involved snapping a pic of yourself on Instagram using #XX8DaysofFlight wearing the Air Jordan model corresponding to that day. The black and green sneakers have popped up across Instagram, as the lucky Air Jordan enthusiasts who received their pairs have been eager to show them off (and it looks like Jordan Brand unknowingly selected one user to receive two pairs). Now that the pairs are out there, it will be a test of will power to see who ends up keeping these one of a kind sneakers in their personal collection and who ends up taking the “other” route to cash out, although the 1-of-1 factor might be to tough to let go! Check out most of the Air Jordan “XX8 Days of Flight” pairs that have been doled out right after the jump and tell us in the comments which pair is your favorite.

It’s not that often that the official backstory of an Air Jordan retro release is revealed, so we may never know the true inspiration for this brand new Air Jordan VIII colorway. Suns, Knicks, and even Bobcats connections have been thrown at there to date. We’re going with the first one for now, as the Air Jordan VIII at large is actually relevant to said color combo what with the Suns/Bulls matchup that took place in the 1993 NBA Finals. Get the latest set of images on this “Suns” Air Jordan VIII after the jump and then tell us if you’ve got anymore speculative nicknames you want to slap onto this May release.

The Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” 2013 retro is coming, you’ve just gotta be patient. Unless you’re Fabolous, who is plenty used to being blessed with early Air Jordan pairs. The Brooklyn rapper is shown here in that very colorway, although it’s unclear as to whether or not the Air Jordan VIII on feet in the image is of the 2007 or 2013 persuasion. Also notable is Fab’s “OG” sweatshirt, a Vandal-A design that’s been more and more popular amongst the sneakerhead set of late. Let us know if you think Fab’s got a new pair of the Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” on in the comments below.
