We've been stanning hard over the Jordan 33's lately—and so have many NBA players—but it's never easy to decide which pair of J's to pull the trigger on. We were all set on the new hotness but then Jordan Brand just had to release this "South Beach" colorway for the VIII.
That color scheme just brings back so much retro feels—it extends all the way from the silhouette's staple fuzzy logo to the sole. We remember Maui & Sons binder notebooks, Will Smith as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Rugrats, etc.
The Jordan 8's haven't been the most popular choice for re-releases and new takes lately, so it's also a breath of fresh air for you collectors. We've almost forgotten how they look so different—in a good way! It comes out October 13—barely a week before XXXIII drop day! Which would you go for first?
