The Jordan Brand is set to launch the Air Jordan 8.0 in at least five different colorways throughout the month of October. A modern interpretation of the original Air Jordan 8, the 8.0 features several re-designed elements, such as the cross-straps, hell pull-tab, midsole and outsole tread. Most noticeable is the incorporation of Flywire Technology on the side panels, which helps provide a more secure fit.

Of the five colorways being released in October, four of them are simple white-based looks, while the other is a black-based style inspired by the original "Playoff" colorway. Worth noting on the "Playoff" pair is the use of the Jumpman/Hoop graphic on the tongue that appeared on the unreleased original sample.

Look for all five of these colorways to drop at Jordan accounts in October. Retail will be $150.
