Rui Hachimura will be joining forces with Jordan Brand once again before years end with a special rendition of the Air Jordan 8. 

Collaborating with Jordan Brand in the past on the Air Jordan 34, Rui Hachimura of the Washington Wizards will be getting a taste of his first-ever Retro Jordan release. Featuring an official colorway of Twine, Gym Red, Black, and Sesame, the AJ8 features a tonal design that calls for twine throughout the suede base that’s accented by a nice two-toned graphic overlay system. Other details include black and red detailing that features Rui’s personal logo on the tongues while also opting for a special edition box that makes the pair even that more special.


The Rui Hachimura x Air Jordan 8 is set to release before year’s end which will make the rendition a highlight of the Holiday 2021 collection. The pair will be released via select Air Jordan retailers and for $225.
