We will finally be seeing the release of the OVO’s version of the Air Jordan 8. What is OVO??? OVO is a Toronto-based Canadian music record label. It was founded in 2012 by music artist Drake, Oliver El-Khatib, and producer Noah “40” Shebib. OVO is an abbreviation for “October’s Very Own”, in which October the 24th is Drake’s Birthday. The Air Jordan 8 OVO Black is set to release on All-Star Weekend, which is this weekend. Who will be the lucky individual to cop these???
The Air Jordan 8 History
The Air Jordan 8 was first introduced in 1993. Tinker Hatfield felt that the Jordan Brand was strong enough to stand on it’s own, and didn’t want the 8s to feature the Nike sign. It took a lot of time for Hatfield to convince Nike to stop putting the Nike Sign on the Jordan Brand, but it stopped eventually. There is absolutely NO Nike Sign on the Air Jordan 8. The design on the Air Jordan 8 was crazy, and it became the talk of the town. Sneaker heads and basketball players talked about them a lot, and they were blown away from the crazy colorways. However, there is a con about the Air Jordan 8: the straps on the sneakers (known as bunny ears) made the sneakers tight on the sides. This made the sneakers uncomfortable for people with wide feet 🙁 . What is great about the sneakers is that they feature polycarbonate torsion plates, durabuck uppers, Air soles, huarache inner sleeves, and anti-inversion cross-straps (known as bunny ears). They were originally retailed for $125.00 in 1993.
Features Of The Shoe
This shoe features premium leather material covered in black. On the gold heel tabs, you will notice the OVO branding and the OVO owl as well. Additionally, there are red Jumpman logos located on the tongue patches, and touches of gold located on the outsole and heel regions. Finally, it comes in a special OVO shoe box.
These hot kicks are scheduled to release on February 16th, for $225.00. These are limited, and will sell FAST!!! So mark your calendars and go cop.
