Sneaker of the Week: Drake x Air Jordan 8 6IX YEARS
We fully understand that the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Black drops this weekend and that is definitely one of the most important moments going on in the sneaker world right now, but "the boy" is making sneaker moves of his own. By "the boy," we're referring to Drake and those moves are with Adidas’ rival Nike. He revealed two OVO-themed Air Jordan 8 colorways on Instagram and instantly netted our Sneaker of the Week slot.
The collaboration has spawned two colorways of the Air Jordan 8 and both are fairly plain, but each are injected with splashes of OVO specific branding. The white pair sports a tumbled leather upper and the words 6IX YEARS etched into the midfoot strap while the black pair is given tumbled leather and nubuck on its upper with a owl embossed golden pull tab. Both pair are given gold accents on the side panel and outsole for the perfect amount of pop on an otherwise understated look.
He’s been seen rocking these for a few weeks now so naturally crowds are clamoring for any information regarding their release but alas there is none. However, considering that his Air Jordan 10 colorways are slated for a September 8th release it it could simply be shaping up to be a really big day for OVO.
