Jordan Brand has already given Rui Hachimura several PE makeups of some of its most recent performance Air Jordans, and soon, the Washington Wizards forward is also getting a special colorway on the Retro front.
Leaked images from @Kangofmemphis reveal a first look at Hachimura’s forthcoming Air Jordan 8 release. The shoe wears an all-brown color scheme on the upper with crackled leather on both the base and the cross straps at the midfoot. The tongue also features Hachimura’s Kanji-inspired samurai logo, which was designed by his mother in honor of his family’s name. The shoe comes with special packaging and the lid features a graphic of Hachimura dunking on two defenders.
As of now, the release details for Hachimura’s Air Jordan 8 have yet to be announced by the brand but stay tuned to Sole Collector for official updates in the weeks ahead.
UPDATE (11/11/21): Official images of Hachimura’s forthcoming Air Jordan 8 colorway have surfaced, which implies that the shoe could be hitting stores soon. Keep it locked to Sole Collector for updates.
UPDATE (01/26/22): It looks like fans will have to wait a little longer before they can get their hands on the Rui Hachimura x Air Jordan 8. Per @zSneakerheadz, the style will now release on March 24 after it was initially scheduled to hit shelves next month. Check back soon for official updates.
