When a collaboration between Drake and Jordan brands was announced, social media went insane. No Jordan fan could hide his/her excitement, no one could contain the wild imagination. What color would it be? How would the overlay look like? All this were questions Jordan fans could not wait for Kordan Brands to answer. When in 2015 the Air Jordan 8 OVO White photos surfaced most of this was answered. One stood, When can I get them? Well, I’ll answer you that and more right here.
Air Jordan 8 OVO

Well, the journey has been long and at times the fans almost didn’t believe they would ever be released. However, true to their word, the Air Jordan 8 OVO White is scheduled to be released this Friday the 16th February 2018. They will be featured in Nike’s Jordan releases 2018 and everyone who’s been eyeing them for years can hold them by the hand.
Each pair is expected to cost around $225 and will be available on the Nike website, you can also find them on selected Jordan Brands stores.
While over the years Nike has never released the official sneakers pictures but rather kept dropping teasers, now they have. So hows it like?
The highly anticipated high-top is expected to come in two colors; Black and White. Both will feature the OVO brand which is built on a golden owl logo on the sole. The Black pair offers leather overlays with gold accents across the midsole. Metallic accents are also visible in the tumbled leather and nubuck material sneaker.
The release of the new Jordans will coincide with the All-star weekend in Los Angeles, this is no coincidence if you ask me.
The Iconic rapper who has had huge success in the music industry now finally sets a “footprint” in the sneakers world. The sneaker not only reflects the continued line of quality, and aesthetic built line of Air Jordan releases but also has now a mark of a hip-hop legend.
The high-top has been awaited for nearly two years and most of us will ask, was it worth the wait? Well, yes, yes it was. It is everything we would have imagined and more. It’s a true reflection of fashion meets music.
The brand new Air Jordan 8 OVO White will be a great addition to the Air Jordan 2018 releases and overall exclusive in the line of Air Jordans as having Drake’s “footprint”.
