The Air Jordan VIII will be next in line in the Jordan Brand ‘point-zero’ series, in which original Air Jordan models are re-thrust into the sneaker scene with completely retooled and refinished uppers. Just yesterday Sneaker News showed you a White/Blue/Grey colorway that garnered quite the response from our readers, and we don’t expect much different for this new edition of White/Red/Grey. Some of the prominent Air Jordan VIII features return, like the crossing in-step straps and the graffiti-like print on the midsole, but what’s new is the Flywire-stabilized upper and revised midsole construction. While we only have a lateral shot of this shoe, one could imagine the medial side to feature some sort of Hyperfuse-like material (if the earlier catalog shots are of any indication) for added ventilation, which was one of the primary issues with the Air Jordan VIII. Somewhere, Bugs Bunny is munching his carrots in acceptance or dissatisfaction, but what do you think? Chime in below and expect the Air Jordan 8.0 to arrive later this year. via villa.
