The Air Jordan Retro news continues as we get a first look at yet another upcoming OG colorway slated for a 2013 comeback. The return of the Air Jordan VIII in the classics “Bugs” colorway was first reported back in October of 2012, joining both the ‘Playoffs’ and the ‘Aqua’ for quite the package of VIII models in 2013. Aside from Michael making these incredibly popular, this White-based version of the Air Jordan VIII was rocked by Bugs Bunny in the classic Space Jam film! These have hit stores as a Retro twice before – once in 2003 and again in 2008 as part of the Collezione Package, so let us know if you might have these already in your collection, or if you’ll be targeting these come April.

Wt. 16.2 oz.
As the release date of the Air Jordan 1 High “Bulls” draws near, more images of the shoe continue to surface.

The Air Jordan 3 (III) Retro+ – White / True Blue were released in 2001 and retailed for $269. These were very popular, and sneaker fiends did whatever it took to get their hands on a pair. They feature a white leather upper with elephant print at the heel, toe area and lacing tabs, which was uncommon.The blue trimmig and accents are really nice, and help add to the shoe’s popularity. The Air Jordan 3 (III) was originally designed by Tinker Hatfield, who may actually be responsible for keeping Micheal at Nike, who back then was signed with them, but was planning to walk until he placed his eyes on the marvelous pair of shoes we call the Air Jordan 3 (III).
