UPDATE: At last, an image of the Undefeated x Air Jordan 8 has emerged. The shoe pictured, obtained by Sole NYC, is said to be a 'look see' sample of the hotly coveted colab. As such, it's likely to be extremely close to the product we will see hit retail in the very near future. As expected, the colab embraces the army green nubuck featured on the Undefeated Air Jordan 4, though takes a decidedly darker approach than the fan-made mock-ups produced when release rumours first started to swirl. The end product may still differ from the sample, although we're liking what we're seeing at this stage.
The Undefeated x Air Jordan 8 is rumoured to hit worldwide Joran Brand stockists on January 20.
Good news Jordan fans. We’re getting closer to having a release date for the Undefeated Air Jordan 8. Information is foggier than a Chicago winter, but numerous sources are speculating that the green and orange prodigies will drop in late January 2017. Sure to be one of the biggest releases of the season, the sneaker follows in the footsteps of the highly desirable Undefeated Air Jordan 4 from 2005. The first colab was momentous as it marked Jordan Brand’s inaugural collaboration. The military inspired drop was limited to an ultra-limited squadron of 79 pairs, it reaches upwards of $15K on the reseller market and is one of the most expensive sneakers of all time. Here’s hoping the next release has a few more pairs to go round. Until then, hold tight and stay tuned for more info.
