Air Jordan VIII ‘Alternate’

Air Jordan 8

The NBA used to be much more strict about uniformity. Back when Michael Jordan played, he couldn’t play in a million different colorways because the League didn’t allow it.

Had things been a little looser, MJ would’ve hit the court in this “Alternate” sneaker at the old Chicago Stadium.¬†An embroidered heel tab, which nods to the silhouette’s original ’93 run, pops up on the back. There’s also a leather and textile upper and an encapsulated Air-Sole unit in the heel for lightweight cushioning.

These release on February 25, for $190 on
