Jordan Brand Previews The Holiday 2015 Retro Lineup


Air Jordan Viii
Originally debuted by the legend himself during Chicago’s “three-peat” championship basketball season in 1992-93, the Air Jordan VIII was a true showstopper on the hardwood. Featuring distinctive crossover straps atop the laces, the Air Jordan VIII was the last shoe His Airness would wear before his sudden retirement in October 1993.


Jordan Brand will release three colorways of this iconic silhouette during the 2015 holiday season, paying homage to historic moments during Michael Jordan’s career.

Air Jordan Viii “Aqua”
Worn originally during the 1993 All-Star Game, the Air Jordan VIII Aqua returns with fully re-mastered construction and OG materials. The classic silhouette features a black Nubuck upper, in addition to Bright Concord and Aqua highlights, that brighten the back half of the shoe.

Air Jordan Viii “Three Time’s A Charm”
The Air Jordan VIII Three Times a Charm pays tribute to Chicago’s first three-peat championship season, while taking color cues from each of the three defeated teams. Vivid hues invigorate the white- and black-based shoe, in addition to the Infrared-toned Jumpman highlighted on the new tongue label.

Air Jordan Viii “Black And Chrome”
One of the first non-OG colorways of the Air Jordan VIII, the black-and-chrome version makes its return this holiday season. Upon its first release in 2003, the shoe became an instant classic. The black-based upper incorporates chrome-like accents throughout the shoe and pulls design details from the Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” and Air Jordan VIII “Aqua”.
