In this series we take a dive into our extensive sample closet to pull out some long lost favorites that once graced the shelves of Foot Locker stores. Anyone still have the OG Air Jordan VIII “Bugs Bunny” from 1993?
The Air Jordan VIII White/Black/True Red was dubbed the “Bugs Bunny” because of commercials featuring MJ and the cartoon. It also introduced straps to the Jordan line, which are often likened to bunny-ears. The sample pictured above is from the original release in 1993 (not the 2003 or 2008 retro). Jordan wore the VIII in ’93 when he won his first 3-peat with the Bulls, and shortly thereafter decided to take his first break and pursue a baseball career. If you’ve still got your OG pair or any of the retro’s hit us up in the comments below, Facebook or Twitter.
