Air Jordan is one of the most famous sneaker lines in the world. It was made by Nike and Michael Jordan’s joint label. The two people have kept all the other shoe companies on their toes and made a big difference in the sneaker world.
After that, the Jordan brand continued to be important in the sports world by sponsoring a number of athletes. These athletes are often given exclusive shoes called P.E.s, which stands for Player Exclusive shoes. One of the newest P.E.s is a new look for the Air Jordan 8.
Senior Jordan designer Kelsey Amy used Twitter to show off a Christmas-themed makeover of the Air Jordan 8, which she called “Eight Nog.” The pair is only for players and is not likely to be sold to the general public. But you can always buy these samples from reseller sites like StockX for a lot of money.

Kelsey Amy gave a gift to both players and sneakerheads on Christmas Day, while most people were at home with their families and friends. This was the “Eight Nog” makeover of the Air Jordan 8, which was based on a popular holiday drink.
Kelsey Amy is known for making some of the best player-exclusive samples. She has worked with athletes like Jayson Tatum and Luka Doncic to make their P.E.s. Nike has given these Jordan label-sponsored players some extra perks, like getting the most sought-after and rare sneakers.

Like the spiced cream drink, the shoe has a theme and is made of simple colors. The shoes’ uppers are made of sail and brown colors. The sail-colored overlays and maroon splatter detailing on the upper are a direct reference to the cinnamon in egg nog.
The overlays are put on the straps on the front of the foot, along the collar, and on the back of the heel. Details made of perforated leather, which are usually on the toe boxes, are now on the quarter panels and collars. The cinnamon brown color stands out on the splatter paint, the pull tabs, the Jumpman patch on top of the tongue, and the sock liners.
The Jumpman patch on top of the tongues is made of chenille to give the shoes a unique look. The eggshell-colored panels are given structure by the TPU heel overlays, which are also hand-painted in a light brown color.
Two-toned brown and sail sole units on the midsoles and outsoles finish off the look. The Jordan brand only gave the Nike AJ8 “Eight Nog” shoes to the athletes they sponsored. Nike hasn’t said anything about how much the shoes will cost in stores yet.
