As usual with Air Jordan Retro releases, it looks like Rip Hamilton got his hands on a pair of the “Three-Peat” Air Jordan 8 early. An obvious perk of being on Team Jordan throughout most of his career, Rip always scores the retros early, and he seems to be liking the all-new Air Jordan 8 colorway as evidenced by the use of multiple flame emojis on his Instagram post. Inspired by Michael Jordan’s first three-peat with the Bulls which was completed in 1993 while wearing the Air Jordan 8, the shoe features a heavy lean towards a Phoenix Suns color scheme since that’s the team the Bulls beat in the ’93 Finals. Check out this early preview from Rip, and get ready for the release of the Air Jordan 8 Retro “Three-Peat” on October 24, 2015.
