The 8 Epic Air Jordan 8s: Because Everything is Better in Eights

By March 17, 2022Jordan, Nike

The Top 8 Epic Air Jordan 8s - AIO BotSo, since one of the best Air Jordan 8s is dropping this March, let’s talk about the epic 8s!

The Air Jordan 8 is yet another creation from the Tinker Hatfield line of Nike sneakers. However, its release did not come as much of a joyous occasion at the time. You see, this was the Jordan that Michael Jordan wore to win his third championship ring back in 93. BUT, it was also the last Jordan he wore before his first retirement from the NBA. Even the OG Jordan box at the time was a bit slacking. Thankfully, that hiatus didn’t last long. Or else, we’d all hate the 8s by now!

And so, since we all don’t hold a grudge against the Air Jordan 8s, let’s get into the epic list. And, make sure you check out the list below for anything (and everything) you might need on Jordans! Trust us, you’re gonna need it!
