There are plenty of reasons that the upcoming Jordan release date of the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” is one of the most anticipated and hyped re-release of all time. Perhaps the foremost reason is the fact that it is somewhat of a rare sneaker that made its retail debut in 1993 after Michael Jordan wore it during that year’s NBA All-Star Game, and it was re-released only once after that. The colorway itself is another reason behind the popularity of this sneaker, since it features colors that are far too different from the ones that were typically used for MJ’s kicks when he was playing for the Chicago Bulls.
Despite being increasingly critiqued, Jordanheads remain loyal to the Air Jordan 8 because of its unconventional nature. In fact, some collectors even consider the Air Jordan 8 the best sneaker by Jordan Brand of all time. Moreover, had Jordan Brand not returned to the sport of basketball in 1995, the Air Jordan 8 would have been last sneaker Michael Jordan would have laced up in on the court.
Until recently, the general assumption was that the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” was making a solo return after 8 years, but now it seems that its Black Friday release will be a part of the latest Game Plan collection. The collection includes a few different colored T-shirts that can be paired with the sneaker and it also includes a hoodie, considering that the weather is getting colder. Apart from the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua,” the collection will also include the Air Jordan Eclipse and the Jordan Slides sandals. Last but not least, a matching beanie, snapback and a pair of socks with the Air Jordan 8 “Flower Power” logo will also be a part of the collection.
The Jordan release 2015 of the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” itself is scheduled for Black Friday, i.e. November 27th. However, Jordanheads can get their hands on the collection right away by checking if there is a retailer near them at ChampsSports’s official website.
