When the Air Jordan VIII arrived, MJ was well on his way to yet another title. The cross-strapped icon designed by Tinker Hatfield was worn by the legend during his third championship run, and the sneaker now returns in celebratory fashion. The festive take on the Air Jordan VIII comes to life with luxurious leathers and signature accents. Patent leather detailing shines bright, coming coupled with confetti-inspired accents to complete the celebration.
The details come to life on the shoe, with subtle nods to the feeling of competing on the road. The dark upper represents how playing without the support of a home crowd feels as the visiting team. In the face of a Phoenix crowd, His Airness and team came out on top. The celebration is expressed through the bright confetti over a dark base – allowing celebration to become the focal point of the shoe. Hidden under the cross-straps, lies a triumphant message: ‘WORLD CHAMPIONS’ and ‘AGAIN AND AGAIN’.
