LAUNCHES | November 8, 2018


Following in the creative mastery that is the Jordan ‘Tinker’ series, Jordan Brand adds another signature strapped silhouette to the collection with the Air Jordan 8 ‘Tinker’. Digging deep into the archives of Tinker’s unmistakable designs, this colour-way borrows some creative artistry from the iconic Nike Air Raid. With the two fastened footwear designs bearing a striking resemblance, it only made sense for these two to come together for the perfect throwback theme.


Inspired by the ‘Urban Jungle’ colour-way used on the Nike Air Raid 1 and 2, this popular hoop shoe was tied to 90’s basketball legend Tim Hardaway; who owned one of the most iconic killer crossovers in NBA lore. Boasting a smooth black nubuck throughout the upper, these are artfully blended with woven materials, serving as a reserved and refined base. With early 90’s influence evident throughout the sneaker, pops of light concord, green and university red are spotted at the chenille tongue graphic, lining and heel. With graphic callbacks to the Air Raid 2 on the unique heel graphics, the shoe is finished with a “Live Together” message on the heel tab.


Look for these special sneaks to land at JD Sports in extremely limited numbers on the 22nd of December.
