‘Air Jordan’ is a brand of basketball footwear and athletic clothing produced by Nike. The company is about to release the annual Air Jordan 8 “Cigar and Champagne” Championship Pack this weekend in two new colorways. We bet it is surely something that a sneaker fan would not like to miss. The details are here.
Jordan Brand has gained popularity in releasing retro versions of popular Air Jordan sneakers released in the past. Even though the legendary Basketball player Michele Jordan retired from the game long back, his sneaker line is still managed to create a ripple effect among the fans.
In 2015, the Jordan Brand offered us the ‘Air Jordan 7’ as part of The Cigar and Champagne Championship Pack. Likewise in 2014, the Championship Pack shoe took the form of the ‘Air Jordan 6’. The Bitbag reports.
This year the fans will get two versions of Jordan’s eighth signature shoe. Isn’t that a double treat to make whoopee? This year’s Championship Pack models the pair ‘His Airness’ sported during Game 6 of the 1993 NBA Finals against Charles Barkley and the Phoenix Suns. This was also the game that secured Jordan’s first 3-peat; wherein he went on to win another three successive NBA Finals in 96, 97 and 98.
The first Air Jordan 8 Championship Pack features two pairs. One is in all Black and the other one is in all White.
Description- (via The Source )
The all-black leather pair has a colorful confetti design on the side panel and the mid-sole. It also features the “WORLD CHAMPIONS” and “AGAIN AND AGAIN” printed phrases.
The all-white Light Bone leather pair has gold plated side panels and accents. The gold panels feature fingerprints that signify Michael Jordan and his Chicago fellow player passing around the 93’ Championship trophy in celebration. In addition, the insides of the straps have printed the phrases “WORLD CHAMPIONS” and “AGAIN AND AGAIN.”
