If you see a bunch of red-eyed teenagers standing on a line April 20th, don’t worry it isn’t the zombie apocalypse. It’s just a bunch of hazy adolescents waiting to get their pair of Retro Air Jordan 8’s. These sneakers return in their original White / Black-True Red colorway this spring. Nicknamed after MJ’s cartoon compadre, the “Bugs Bunny” tag takes it’s cue from the constant collaboration between Michael Jordan and the iconic Looney Tunes star. In addition to their partnership on Space Jam and commercials, the two crossing straps which fold across the sneaker, resemble rabbit ears, giving fans the green light for the whimsical moniker.
Check your local retailers and try to find a spot in line early if you don’t want to pay any crazy re-sale prices!
