The Air Jordan 8 continues to get updated.

One of the more unique Jordans to come out during the 90s was none other than the Air Jordan 8. Overall, this is a shoe that was known for having a very bulky silhouette. This is a silhouette that definitely is not easy to love. It is one of those shoes that is not going to work on everyone, and as a result, it is a turn-off for a lot of people. However, there are quite a few fans out there who love this silhouette. It is for a very specific subset of sneakerheads, and Jordan Brand is definitely happy to have them on board.

This is a big year for the Air Jordan 8 due to the fact that the shoe is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Subsequently, fans can expect a whole host of great Air Jordan 8 models to make it to the market. In any given year, fans may be lucky to get one new Jordan 8. Although, this year, is going to be a much better year for the shoe. In fact, we are starting to see some teasers for the Jordan 8 range, and overall, there is a lot of great stuff coming out.

Air Jordan 8 "Gunsmoke"

Courtesy of, we now know about the Air Jordan 8 Winterized "Gunsmoke." Of course, the Winterized line takes great Jumpman shoes and gives them materials that are made for the elements.

With this latest "Gunsmoke" colorway, Jordan Brand comes through with a stealthy Jordan 8 that is extremely difficult to dislike. Firstly, the upper is covered in black.
