Originally previewed here, the Air Jordan 8 Retro "Championship Trophy" is set to launch this Saturday. Whether you're a fan of the distinctive silhouette, you can't deny the Air Jordan 8's significance in Michael Jordan lore, as it was present for MJ's first three-peat with the Chicago Bulls. Over two decades later, the shoe returns in a special celebratory colorway, featuring a white leather build with gold accents throughout, giving the nod to Michael's third career championship trophy. His fingerprints are recreated in the metallic gold paneling, mimicking the way in which he passed around the Larry O'Brien trophy during the post-victory celebration. Bold declarations -- "WORLD CHAMPIONS" and "AGAIN AND AGAIN" -- are hidden on the underside of the straps. The kicks launch this Saturday, June 25, through Nike's SKRS
