TheAir Jordan 11s Legend Blue just might be the most underratedpair of kicks in the legendaryJordan line of shoes. Many Jordan shoe fanactics consider the shoe to be too heavy. Perhaps this is due to the extra cushioning that was implemented into the shoe when compared to previous Air Jordan models. Others, like myself, don't look at extra cushioning as a problem on a shoe. Whether you like it or not, theJordan 8 is one of the more epic Jordan shoes released. Dropped during the 1992-1993 "Three-Peat" Championship season, this shoe was the last Air Jordan that Michael wore before he retired for the first time.
Well, the Jordan 11 Legend Blue OG is back with a new look. The newAir Jordan 8.0 is an updated, performance oriented version of the original 8. The new Nike Flywire technology is used on the upper to increase support and stability. The tongue, cross-straps, pull-tab, midsole, and heel have also been re-designed for increased performance. But the biggest change to the originalis the change that has been made to the outsole. The new outsole uses a much more traditional herringbone print in addtion to the original dimple pattern that the Jordan 8used.
There will be a total of 5 colorways of this Legend Blue 11s dropped in October. Four of those colorways will use a clean white based upper while the fifth will use black. The black colorway was inspired by the original Jordan XIII "Playoff" colorway. It will also use a mixture ofred and grey on the midsole. When the original Jordan 8 was first retroed it was one of the most anticipated Retros in the line. This new Jordan 8.0 may be one of the most anticipated new "Hybrids" that Jordan Brand is releasing.
