With a three-decade gap, the Air Jordan 38 draws inspiration from its predecessor, the Air Jordan 8. It pays tribute to the AJ8 through the use of matching chenille tongue tabs and an X-Plate tooling reminiscent of the midfoot straps. This latest addition to the Jordan Brand's lineup also features a colorway that aligns with the one released in 1993.
Revisiting the color blocking of its iconic predecessor from thirty years ago, the "Bugs Bunny" Jordan 38 recently released in an "Aqua" collection. The new version maintains the OG's greyscale color scheme, featuring an embroidered upper in a crisp white shade and a faint grey hue for the forefoot's cabling.
Adding contrast, the tongues and inner linings are jet-black, while the fuzzy tongue tab showcases a combination of red, white, and grey tones. The mid-foot shanks underneath mimic the marbled detailing of the AJ8, adorned with streaks of "University Red", while the midsole is finished in a dark "Smoke Grey".
As we eagerly await official release details and visuals, take pleasure in a preliminary glimpse of the Air Jordan 38 "Bugs Bunny" showcased below.
