Spring is definitely in the air. That means Nike is bringing out the Pantone books, selecting all the pastels for their upcoming Spring releases. Here, the Air Jordan 8 joins the mix, clashing pinks with oranges atop this PS “Arctic Punch” colorway.
A model relatively underrepresented, the AJ8 is not often seen on the market. And whenever the silhouette does appear, it’s often as women’s or girl’s exclusives like the pair here. Atop the overlays, lining, and outsole, the titular tone takes the helm, accenting over top white-coated, perforated leathers. The strap behind, though partially clad in a lighter, pastel pink shade, is predominantly made up of bright oranges. This is further mimicked throughout — specifically, at the lower heel’s decal, the heel pull, and the embroidered Jumpman branding at the tongue.
For a better, closer look, see the official images below. A release is likely to hit select retailers and Nike.com soon.
