As you may know, Jordan Brand‘s Holiday Season lineup of Air Jordan releases 2018 includes a snowflake-inspired Grade School-sized colorway. The colorway being referred to is the Air Jordan 8 GS “Snowflake” or “Snow Blizzard,” which was first seen back in October. Coincidentally, one of Jordan Brand’s recent Air Jordan 8 releases was actually spring-themed. If you are wondering, it was the Air Jordan 8 “South Beach” that was dressed up in hues typically associated with spring break in South Beach, Florida. Of course, this latest colorway of the Air Jordan 8 is completely the opposite since it is inspired by the blizzards and snowfalls of winter.
Another Air Jordan 8 Colorway Is Arriving Before Christmas
You probably know about the Air Jordan 8 “Tinker” that is inspired by the Nike Air Raid, which was designed by Tinker Hatfield and was originally released back in 1992. News about this colorway actually began circulating back in April, but it did not even have a proper nickname back then, nor was it known what it would end up looking like. However, @zSneakerHeadz did reveal that its color scheme would be “Black/Light Concord–Aloe Verde–University Red–Orange Peel” and also shared a Photoshop rendition of it on Instagram. This colorway will also be among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2018 as a part of Jordan Brand’s Holiday Season lineup.
The Air Jordan 8 “Snowflake” / “Snowy Blizzard” Is A Grade School Colorway
As mentioned, the very first photos of the Air Jordan 8 GS “Snowflake” / “Snowy Blizzard” surfaced back in October on Fineline1721.com. Since it is meant to be worn during winter, its uppers are made up of nylon and tumbled leather, while its crisscrossed straps are made up of patent leather and it is also equipped with icy outsoles. Overall, this colorway is dressed up in a winter–themed combination of Blue Void, Cobalt Blaze and White. Its color scheme definitely makes it look almost “frozen.”
Giving it an even more icy appearance, several different snowflake patterns can be spotted on its sides.
