Air Jordan 8: 1992–1993
It was during the “Three-Peat” 1992-1993 Championship season that Jordan 8 was released. Before Air Jordan retired for the very first time, Jordan 8 was the last Jordan pair that he wore.
As featured by Jordan 8, it was for the very first time that anti-inversion cross-over leather, thickened padding for additional stability and support and Velcro straps utilized. Only three different colorways of Jordan 8 had been released, as a result of which they became one of Jordan Brand’s bestselling shoes.
Jordan 8 was quite a heavy pair of shoes. The base of this pair was definitely similar to that of Jordan 7, but it featured far more accents, color and details. Many who wore these shoes were particularly surprised about how padded they were. This was the main reason the pair was so heavy, which also made them ideal to keep the feet warm during winter season.
It was back in 2003 when Jordan Brand retroed the Air Jordan 8 for the very first time. However, Nike made sure the retro releases were brief, with two mids and lows, each released in a different colorway. Even then, Jordan Brand fans could not help but cop an Air Jordan 8 Retro pair.
Around 2 months ago, a new concept colorway of Jordan 8 had been unveiled to showcase what the pair would look like if Jordan Brand collaborated with Dead Dilly’s high fashion labels.
