This Saturday, the Air Jordan 8 “Bugs Bunny” will return to the delight of many. An OG colorway, the shoe was worn by Michael Jordan on the NBA hardwood in 1993. Get the basics on the release history and heritage of this AJ8 before they come out in this edition of Everything You Need to Know.
The Air Jordan 8 launched during the 1992-93 season. Sporting criss-cross straps, a fuzzy tongue, and brush stroke midsole, the White/Black-True Red makeup was the first of three colorways to release.
A decade after its debut, the Air Jordan 8 returned in retro form. Like the original launch, the White/Black-True Red colorway was first, releasing on March 1st, 2003.
The Air Jordan 8 White/Black-True Red released for the third time in 2008 as part of the Countdown Pack series. This installment was paired with a Black/Red makeup of the Air Jordan XV and was somewhat of a slow seller due to recent release, lack of popularity of the XV, and package price tag.
