A year full of iconic Tinker Hatfield-designed Air Jordans boasting colorways inspired by the footwear wizard’s other Swoosh Brand creations is drawing to a close. The shoe set to finish things off with a bang? The Air Jordan 8 “Air Raid,” releasing this weekend. Featuring bold red, green, yellow, and blue accents — taken from a classic Air Raid 2 colorway — that sit on top of a stark black nubuck/nylon base, this new AJ8 is a fitting homage to an underrated classic hoop shoe from the early ’90s. The Air Raid and Air Jordan 8 are a natural pairing: both are centered around criss-crossing straps on the upper and a high-cut construction. Therefore, this new color combo fuses their aesthetics and key embellishments together perfectly, making for a tasteful homage to hoops that’s sure to be loved by Jordan fanatics of all ages. The “Air Raid” AJ8 is set to release December 22nd for a retail price of $190 USD, so check out a full store list below to see where you can secure a pair come release day.
