Drake and Jordan Brand pay tribute to Charles Oakley with this Air Jordan 8 PE, which may or may not join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019. Much like Jordan Brand, “Toronto’s Very Own” Drake has had close ties with the Toronto Raptors, the team that Charles Oakley was a member of between 1998 and 2001. Since the Air Jordan 8 is one of Drake’s favorite sneaker models from Jordan Brand, an Air Jordan 8 “OVO” Pack was released last year on February 16th, 2018.
From this looks of it, this Air Jordan 8 PE iteration has uppers made up of leather and suede, dressed up in White and Grey, respectively. Drawing inspiration from the vintage team colors of the Toronto Raptors, it also appears to be featuring Black-, Blue-, Gold-, and Red-colored accents. Furthermore, Charles Oakley-specific detailing the “OAK” on the side of the ankle collars and his number “34” on the straps, while Drake’s Gold-colored “OVO owl” branding can be spotted on the heel pull tabs.
As of now, there is no news on whether this OVO x Air Jordan 8 “Charles Oakley” PE will end up being among this year’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019, so keep checking back to SneakersDog for more updates.
