The 2016 Air Jordan 8 Championship Pack Celebrates Michael Jordan’s 1993 Championship Three-Peat

Over the past two years, Jordan Brand have consecutively commemorated 1st and 2nd NBA Championship victories that Michael Jordan is credited for securing. Starting with the Air Jordan 6 back in 2014 when it was the 23rd anniversary of the model, the Jumpman introduced the Championship Pack consisting of “Champagne” and “Cigar” colorways. The very next year, Jordan Brand followed up with another Championship Pack with similarly nicknamed colorways of the Air Jordan 7. Considering that 2016 marks the 23 anniversary of the Air Jordan 8, Jordan Brand are apparently preparing “Champagne” and “Cigar” iterations for this year’s Championship Pack.

This year’s Air Jordan 8 Championship Pack is obviously supposed to memorialize Michael Jordan’s 3rd NBA Championship. The G.O.A.T. won the championship during the 1992–93 NBA season, which also happened to be the first three-peat season of the Chicago Bulls. Moreover, the Air Jordan 8 had been introduced in 1993 and it was the sneaker MJ had been laced up in when he scored the Three-peat championship victory. This makes the 2016 Championship Pack even more monumental. As can be expected, there are unfortunately no photos at the moment of the Air Jordan 8 “Champagne” and “Cigar” renditions that will be a part of the pack.

Nonetheless, this information comes directly from , who is currently one of the leading sources of the latest Air Jordan-related news and rumors. Apparently, the Air Jordan 8 Championship Pack will include black and white-based colorways of the model. Obviously, the sneakers will be inspired the champagne and cigars that Michael Jordan had always indulged in after winning a championship. They will also likely feature a premium construction.
