Jordan Brand is in the holiday spirit as of late with them gifting Air Jordan 6 PEs to all of their athletes and they didn’t forget about the kids either. As the Oregon Ducks football team heads to San Antonio to play the Oklahoma Sooners in the Alamo Bowl, the team is getting blessed with an Air Jordan 8 PE.
The sneaker uses a grey perforated leather base with the exception of the grey suede on the toebox and white perforated leather on the overlays and straps. Metallic green is seen on the strap buckle with the chenille tongue tag featuring the Duck. Black is seen on the tongue, velcro strap, and on the heel overlay with the outsole featuring different shades of green, yellow, and black.
The Air Jordan 8 PE “Oregon Ducks” is exclusively for the football team as well as friends and family, no word if Mario Cristobal got his pair before he took off for the Miami job. Check out the photos of the exclusive PE below and let us know where this ranks as far as Oregon Ducks PE goes on Twitter and Instagram.
