In 2017, the Air Jordan 8 will be reinterpreted in a color scheme that is somewhat reflective of the lifestyle imprint’s signature tones, although, this forthcoming pair doesn’t correlate with the Los Angeles brand as previous rumors suggested.
The sneaker’s nubuck-based upper is essentially draped in sequoia green, while black and wolf grey accents are implemented on the rear mudguard, tongue and sole unit. Finally, pops of max orange adorn the chenille Jumpman-branded tongue patch and graphic detailing on the outsole to cap off the respective theme.

Renz Ofiaza, News: I’m a fan of the silhouette, as well as the LA-based brand, and this offering looks pretty solid (pending this is how the real pair will look). Nonetheless, this will obviously get the attention it deserves. Re-sale prices should be pretty high.
