On Christmas Day, many of us were cozied up inside, spending some much-needed time with family and friends. Kelsey Amy, however, was clocking in a little bit of overtime, gifting us with images of the Air Jordan 8 “Eight-Nog,” a likely unattainable colorway inspired by one of the holiday’s signature drinks.
Sr. Designer for Jordan Brand and Nike, Kelsey Amy has spent the better part of her career crafting player exclusives for athletes the likes of Luka Doncic and Jayson Tatum. Much of her talent is on display here as well, as the Air Jordan 8 “Eight-Nog” draws clear, readable nods to the beverage of the season. For starters, cinnamon-colored speckles are applied throughout much of the shoe, layered atop a creamy base of suede and leather. Matching browns are then applied to everything from the hardware to the heel piece, the latter of which is patterned in a way akin to a mixed drink.
For a closer look at all the details, check out the beauty shots (credit: @uninstructedvision) of the Air Jordan 8 “Eight-Nog” below. It’s unlikely we’ll see a retail release of this colorway, but expect to find updates here if anything changes.
