Detailed Look at the Air Jordan 8 "Eight-Nog"
Examining the festive sample pair.
For those who missed it, a Christmas Day gift from Kelsey Amy, a Senior Designer for Jordan Brand and Nike, came in the form of a holiday-themed breakdown of an unreleased Air Jordan 8 “Eight-Nog.” Inspired by eggnog, the festive beverage is nodded to with the shoes cream and brown presentation. While it isn’t expected to hit shelves, if it did release it’d be a shoo-in for Hypebeast’s best Christmas sneaker list.
In this thematic look for the Air Jordan 8, a smooth leather base is equipped with a soft off-white shade that replicates eggnog’s creamy properties. Perforations typically found on the silhouette also appear while the overlays favor a brownish off-white with brown cinnamon-like speckles throughout. A chocolate brown splashes into the mix at various hardware and accent elements, starting at the tongue with a red Jumpman and continuing at the lining, heel tab, strap clip and detailed midsole. It also blends with a cream shade at the stitched heel piece as a “Sail” rubber outsole completes the pair.
Unfortunately, this “Eight-Nog” flavor of the Air Jordan 8 is not expected to ever release with it either serving as a PE or friends and family exclusive.
