Compared to many of Jordan Brand's favorites - such as the AJ1 and AJ4 - the Air Jordan 8 rarely receives much attention. But this year, things are looking up for the silhouette, as it recently collaborated with athlete Rui Hachimura and will soon see a brand new, Taxi-themed women's exclusive. Following its reveal during a SNKRS Live back in April, official images of the Taxi have finally surfaced ahead of its release this month. And while identical in namesake to one of the Air Jordan 12's most iconic appearances, the pair lacks any noteworthy resemblance to said colorway. By comparison, blacks are used much more heavily, dressing most of the upper and bottom; even the 23 embroidered front and center follows suit, Travis Scott x Nike Shoes matching the adjacent laces, lining, tongue, and the like. The midsole, the chenille patch, and the portion of the strap branded with AIR JORDAN, however, are much more bold, flaunting shades of gold and yellow. For a closer look at the Air Jordan 8 Taxi, see the official images below. No firm release date has been set just yet, but we should be see these on Nike SNKRS and select retailers later this June.
Especially disparate are the heel and Jumpman branding the latter in its solid pink finish and the former in its pastel-dominant tie-dye. For a closer look at this upcoming Air Jordan 1 Mid, check out the official images below. News of the Jordan 1 price increase might have been a sore sight for some, but such a decision was anticipated given how the demand continues to exceed to supply by a wide margin. It won't come into play until the Holiday 2022 season, which means all the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG releases from now until the end of September will stay at the $170 price-point that was introduced in 2020. But while key releases make use of Jordan Brand history for nostalgia, collaborations still Travis Scott Air Max 1 rival many of these classics in terms of influence. Travis Scott, whose Midas touch has led to more than a handful of sought after sneakers, infused his own personal style into the model back in Fall of 2019. A big part of Jordan Brand's Spring 2022 line-up, the Air Jordan 4 has already been revealed in a number of upcoming colorways, the most notable of which being the Infrared landing later this May. We can also expect to see the Zen Master and women's exclusive Canvas, all of which should tide us over until the release of the Military Black, Olive, and Canyon later in the year. The soft and springy Nike React midsole provides highly responsive cushioning and houses a full-length carbon-fiber plate that delivers a propulsive sensation. The shoe's offset is designed to minimize Achilles strain and its stack height offers impact protection mile after mile.
