As of lately, a rumor has been circulating within the sneaker community that the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” is the sneaker that Jordan Brand is planning to drop on Black Friday 2015, which is still very far away. It is true that many sources have hinted that this rumor could indeed prove to be true. However, 23isBack readers can probably not make sense of this since this “Aqua” colorway of the Air Jordan 8 had hit the shelves almost 8 years ago. Nonetheless, if there is certainly some truth behind this rumor, then it is already obvious which one of the 2015 Jordan release dates will mark the retail debut of this pair.
Back in 2007 when the Air Jordan 8 Retro “Aqua” had originally hit the shelves, it gained popularity amongst Jordanheads rather quickly. Sneakerheads, most likely including many 23 is Back readers, have always been fans of non team colorways of Air Jordan sneakers, especially when it comes to retro models. Ever since the retail debut of the of Air Jordan 5 Retro LS “Grapes,” the Jordan 8 “Aqua” was the next best Air Jordan release that caused quite a lot of excitement amongst Jordanheads.
Just like original, the upper of this 2015 version is also made up of a combination of anti-inversion cross straps and black durabuck for the base. The heel of this sneaker boasts an abstract mix of the Aqua and Concord hues. The Jordan Jumpman featured on the tongue, which is made of terrycloth, and the midsole are also covered with the same combination of colors. The performance features of this sneaker include an air sole, an inner sleeve that resembles that of the Nike Air Hurache, and a poly carbonate torsion plate.
It is probably a bit too early for Jordanheads, including 23isBack readers, to be looking forward towards Holiday 2015 Air Jordan releases. Even though a lot could change in between now and Black Friday 2015, the rumor that the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” is going to be this year’s Black Friday 2015 sneaker. If there is truth behind the rumor, then one of the Jordan release dates 2015 that will mark the return of this 8-year-old retro could be November 27th, 2015.
