In 1993 Michael Jordan was just coming off of one his MANY Championship Seasons. That same year; Tinker Hatfield, released 3 colorways of the Jordan VIII; the Bugs Bunny Colorway, Aqua, and Playoff. The exclusive women’s Jordan VIII (white) Aqua, would not drop until 2007 and has not been seen since.
When I noticed on the SNKRS app that Nike was dropping the ladies’ edition of the Jordan (white) Aqua VIII, I was super excited. What was even more exciting, is that I was able to get some exclusive news about the Jordan VIII’s White Aqua from Kim Jabbie-who works with the women’s line on Jordan Brand; check out what we talked about below.
Hi Kim!! I am super excited about this drop. I hope I can cop the Aqua-Jordan VIII’s in my size!
So what was so special about this J-8 that you are so amped about working on this ladies’ exclusive release? What’s special about the AJ8 (White aqua) was that it was one of the very first retro colorways made specifically for women. We loved that narrative and thought it would be perfect for the Summer season–Kim Jabbie.
Why did you feel this colorway was important to women? The colorway is special because it just embodies the energy from the ’90s (an era our Girl loves) and it reminds me of feel-good music. For whatever reason when I see it Will Smith’s “Summertime” starts to play in my head. LOL –Kim Jabbie.
Can you give us a sneak peek of what else is dropping for the ladies? (LOL). I wish I could give a sneak peek but I can’t…LOL. Its no secret though that FA19 has some big heat coming for Ladies. The “Black Toe” Satin AJ1 High OG is sure to be a crowd favorite. Classic blocking and color with a feminine twist. And we also have some really exciting things coming in the HO19 season as well. Then in 2020? We just go OFF! LOL–Kim Jabbie.
Thank you so much for taking the time to chop it up with me. Wishing all the ladies in the place with “style and grace”; SNKRS app will be gracious with our NEEDS.
The Aqua White Jordan VIII will release 7/12/2019 at 10:00 AM ET via SNKRS and other retailers. They will cost $190. This is definitely a MUST pick up for me!
