First seen on the feet of Michael Jordan during the 1993 NBA All-Star Game, the Air Jordan 8 “Aqua” is set to return in remastered form on Black Friday. The kicks were last seen on store shelves in 2007, and this latest iteration has a build that’s faithful to the original: a black nubuck upper, signature cross straps, poly carbonate torsion plate and the Huarache-inspired inner bootie that first surfaced on the Air Jordan 7. And topping it all off is the distinctive chenille Jumpman patch on the tongue.
This high profile release ushers in the holiday shopping season for 2015, and the Game Plan from Champs Sports will feature the Air Jordan 8 Retro “Aqua” and a full complement of matching footwear silhouettes, as well as apparel and accessories. On the footwear side, look for the Jordan True Flight, Jordan Eclipse, Jordan Flight 23 and Jordan Retro 8 Hydro Slides. Coordinating apparel pieces feature assorted hoodies and tees, while socks and beanies are the perfect way to complete your outfit.
The entire “Aqua” collection launches through Champs retail locations on Black Friday, November 27.
