The Air Jordan VIII represented a radical departure from the stripped-down VII - it was overstuffed, strapped-up, and possibly responsible for some foot issues MJ suffered from in his first three-peat season. (We're assuming the VIIIs weren't the reason he retired, though.) That said, Marvin the Martian wasn't entirely wrong in hoarding them. Tinker Hatfield's designs may always polarize, but given enough time they're also all revered as classics. The Air Jordan VIII is no different.
