Michael Jordan won his third consecutive NBA Championship in 1993 while wearing the Air Jordan VIII. With the Air Jordan VI and VII already getting a "Cigar and Champagne" treatment to commemorate his wins, it was only right that the VIII get the same treatment.
The upcoming release of the Air Jordan VIII "Cigar and Champagne" Pack was first reported last month and now an early preview has surfaced. The pack includes a black-based and white-based colorway of the silhouette. The white pair, presumably the "Champagne" colorway, features white tumbled leather, a pearlescent hue around the lace stays and heel, and a metallic gold side panel with Michael Jordan's finger prints. The other pair features black tumbled leather, black and sparkles around the eye stays and heel and side panels that resemble confetti.
With the soles not attatched to the upper, Instagram user zsneakerheadz is reporting that they are not finished, though it is unclear if there will be any additional changes to the appearance of the sneakers.
The Air Jordan VIII "Cigar and Champagne" Pack is slated to release for $250 each in June 2016.
