Initially making its appearance in 2003, the Air Jordan 8 Chrome is set to return next week for its first retro variation.

Staying true to its original counterpart, the popular sneaker is essentially a classic with its monochromatic palette. Tonal Black is predominant across the silhouette’s nubuck composition, which flows towards its tongue, ankle section and distinctive crossover straps. Additionally, the defining tones of Chrome Grey, White and Black envelop along the sneaker’s rear side panels.

All resting atop a Grey/Black-colored rubber sole unit to coordinate with its respective theme, finishing touches include matching laces and the signature furry Jumpman logo across its tongue tab. Look for this pair at JB and Nike retailers on December 19, for $190. Keep up with more updates on the Air Jordan 8 Chrome, directly from our launch page.

One of my favorite silhouettes and I still own the original pair. The colorway is instantly versatile and obviously one of the best finishes on the model. This should be a definite purchase for most fanatics.
