The Air Jordan Legacy – Part 2 of 5
air jordan shoes went in yet another new direction with the AJVIII and MJ and his shoe line received international exposure at the 92 Summer Olympics. He garnered even more attention for himself and Nike when he led the Bulls to a ’3-Peat’in his Jordan VIIIs. The only Air Jordan that has ever and most likely will ever feature straps is the VIII; supposed to give more support and fit better this was a brand new design concept for the AJs. The lightweight Huarache-like upper was gone while the inner bootie remained and a color splash was added was added near the heel. Detail lovers need to take notice of the carpet surrounding the Jumpman logo on the tongue and ’23′ emblazoned on the strap plus they should recognize that this shoe was only produced in 3 colorways (one for the NBA season and one for the Olympics).
