New Release Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” in 2013
Picture: Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” 2007
This year is going to be a great year for the Air Jordan 8 fans, because it’s been exactly 20 years ago since the Air Jordan 8 model first came out. It was also in 1993 when Michael Jordan won his third NBA Championship in a row, the 3 peat.
Jordan Brand hasn’t been sitting still and to celebrate the anniversary, they released a range of the Air Jordan 8 models already this year including the Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs”, “Bugs Bunny” and a new colorway “Phoenix Suns”. We are still waiting for Jordan Brand to release the Air Jordan 8 “Chrome” later this year and not to mention one of the best color of the series, the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua”.
The shoe features an all black nubuck upper with touches of aqua and purple throughout the midsole and on the fuzzy tongue. The signature straps of the Air Jordan 8 are all black, but the design is contrasted with dark grey suede padding on the back end.
The Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” was the go-to sneaker for Kanye West in his earlier career as he was spotted several times wearing these classic sneakers. Kanye West knows how to dress as he wore these sneakers with different outfits and combined it well with his clothes. It shows that these sneakers are easy to match with any outfit. The black color can be matched with almost any other color, even if it’s with a nice pair of dark Japanese denim or a pair of light blue jeans.
The Air Jordan 8 “Aqua”, as worn by Michael Jordan in 1993, was last retroed in 2007. If you missed out on them back then or if your old pair needs an upgrade, put these on your list. No date is confirmed yet for the Air Jordan Retro 8 “Aqua”, but is expected to be available later this year. Stay tuned and follow us here on Alphastyles.com as we will update you with more info as soon as the release date is available.
