The Air Jordan VIII is easily identified by the unique color splash on the shoe’s midsole and also features a chenille rendition of the Jumpman logo on the tongue. Inspired by the innovative strapping system that Tinker Hatfield developed for the 1992 Nike Air Raid, the sneaker has crisscrossing lockdown straps to keep the shoe tightly secured to the foot. The VIII was produced in three colorways, including the Black/Bright Concord–Aqua Tone that Michael Jordan wore during the 1993 NBA All Star Game when the Chicago Bulls won their third World Championship in a row.
