A famous rabbit assisted MJ in making the Jordan Retro 8 LS a popular hoops shoe. The upper is a combination of smooth, full-grain leather and durabuck while a chenille Jumpman patch graces the tongue to provide that Jordan sophistication. The midfoot straps provide increased support in the midfoot area, and a lightweight, dynamic-fit sleeve gives increased interior comfort. A TPU external heel counter provides increased heel and ankle support. A lightweight sculpted PU midsole has encapsulated Air-Sole® units in the heel and forefoot, and a sculpted TPU insert in the midfoot houses an internal shank plate. The solid rubber outsole has a circular traction pattern and strategically placed flex grooves.
