With 30+ years of history in its repertoire, and more years to come, the most revered Air Jordans are still the OG colorways. Jordan Brand turns that concept on its ear with the "Alternate" collection, which asks every sneaker head the existential question "What if?"
Essentially, the collection brings newly masterminded Chicago Bulls-centric colorways (no love for the Washington Wizards?) to iconic Air Jordan silhouettes with the understanding that Michael Jordan never wore them, but very well could have.
The first "Alternate" release of 2017 occupies the Air Jordan 8 model. At first glance, the design resembles the Bugs Bunny shoe. However, the upper on this version is all white leather, with tiny perforations appearing on the dual cross straps. Hints of black appear on the tongue, inner lining, the velcro straps, and midsole. Gym Red and Wolf Grey accents complete the look.
