After the Air Jordan 2.0 was generally well received on this site when it first dropped, I wanted to poll you guys on Jordan Brand’s next .0 project.

PIcs of the Air Jordan 8.0 surfaced on Tuesday and CounterKicks recently posted shots of a white/red colorway. This shoe strays from the classic Jordan VIII body and instead of the 360 Air Max unit that the 2.0 had, the 8.0 has incorporated Flywire into its upper.

CounterKicks said in its initial post that an aqua colorway is coming to join these two other makeups of the shoe, which hit retail this fall.

What do you guys think of the Air Jordan 8.0? Is it a hit, or did it deviate too much from the original shoe?
