Ahh, to be an NBA athlete signed on to the Jordan Brand label. Such a distinction has fallen on a select group of individuals over the last decade, and although not every Jordan Brand athlete has established a Jordan-like status of stardom, all of these members have been presented with the holy grail of Air Jordans – the Air Jordan Player Exclusive. Unfortunately, the frequency of these Air Jordan PEs has slowed a bit, so right now is as perfect as any other time to look back at some of the Air Jordan models that have been remixed with team colors and jersey numbers. We’ll start with the Air Jordan VIII, which we’ve seen on the feet of elite players like Kobe Bryant, record-setters like Ray Allen, and even role players like Jared Jeffries (but it doesn’t stop there), so take a look at all of the memorable Air Jordan VIII PEs by each player and let us know which one you like best!
Kobe Bryant wore this amazing PE of the Air Jordan VIII in 2003 while he was awaiting his first assignment as the Nike athlete. During most of this season, he wore Player Exclusives of many Air Jordan models.
