Released in celebration of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, the Air Jordan 8 Retro ‘Ovo Black’ is a joint effort between Drake’s co-founded clothing line OVO and the Jordan Brand. 


Tinker Hatfield designed the Air Jordan VIII, and it was released in 1993. It was the first Jordan design by Tinker to feature anti-inversion cross straps, inspired by the high wire acts of trapeze artists. Michael wore the Air Jordan VIII throughout the 1992-1993 NBA season and postseason, switching from White to ‘Playoff’ Black for the last games in the first era of his career. 


Drake’s Toronto-based October’s Very Own “OVO” label has had numerous collaborations with the Jordan Brand. The Air Jordan 8 Retro ‘Ovo Black’ features a black tumbled leather upper, a strap across the ankle with signature OVO branding, and owl logos on the pull tabs. Gold highlights accent the heel and sole of the shoe, while a red Jumpman on the tongue delivers the iconic Jordan look.
