Air Jordan 8
When Tinker Hatfield first proposed creating Nikes without the famous Swoosh, the executives laughed at him, but Hatfield eventually convinced them.
There is no Nike logo on the original Jordan 8. Cross-straps over the laces set the Jordan 8 apart and make it easily recognizable. In addition, its original colorways soon became favorites among Nike fans. Since its initial release in 1993, the AJ 8 has been rereleased several times.
With its Black/Light Concord Aloe-Verde colorway, the Jordan 8 Retro Tinker Air Raid is a top choice. Reflect Silver/Hyper Blue-True Red is another popular colorway of the Jordan 8 Retro Reflections of a Champion. One of Nike’s most famous sneaker designers, Michael Jordan, is honored in these newer colorways. In 2015, the Jordan brand celebrated its 23rd anniversary with the return of this retro sneaker.
Michael Jordan has been releasing a new model of sneakers every season with Nike. Having never missed it, it has become a tradition for him. During his games against the Hawks, Knicks, Cavs, and Suns, the NBA All-Star wore the Air Jordan 8 sneaker shoes. Over the course of his NBA career, Michael scored more than 20 thousand points.
Tinker Hatfield designed the Air Jordan 8 model in 1993, and he fought to make certain changes in the final release. There is no Nike “Swoosh” logo on this pair of shoes, confirming the strong brand recognition Jordan sneaker lines enjoy.
Featuring vivid colors and Jordan’s own brand logo, the Air Jordan 8 has straps over the laces. With any Air Jordan model, this pair of sneakers included new features that helped athletes perform better. Like any other model from this manufacturer, it was also made with high-quality materials for prolonged use.
There were initially only three colorways, red and white Bull’s “Home,” red and white Bull’s “Playoff,” and black and blue in “Aqua.” The first retro edition had one strap over the lace. With the release of the second 2008 retro edition, new colorways were added for both men and women. Third retro editions from 2013 and 2016 featured traditional white and red colors alongside new colorways such as “Chrome.” Some of the iconic Air Jordan 8 designs are “Doernbecher,” “Aqua,” “Three Time’s A Charm,” and others.
Whether you are a professional athlete or a regular trainer, the Air Jordan 8 is very comfortable and durable sportswear. Color patterns can be worn for various occasions, looking more classy than sporty. Find your next pair of sneakers by scrolling down.
