A famous rabbit assisted MJ in making the Air Jordan Retro 8 into a popular hoops shoe. The upper of this shoe is made with smooth, full-grain leather and Durabuck with a chenille Jumpman patch on the tongue. The midfoot is supported with midfoot straps, a dynamic-fit sleeve and a sculpted PU midsole with an encapsulated Air-Sole® unit in the heel and forefoot. There is a TPU external heel counter and insert in the midfoot that houses an internal shank plate. The look is completed with a solid rubber outsole that features a circular traction pattern and strategically placed flex grooves for superior grip on a variety of surfaces.
