One Sale: Air Jordan 8 Stealth at Finishline

Finishline :: Air Jordan Mens Retro 8

(A womens version was also released as well called Ice Blue)

Air Jordan 8 Stealth

Price: $139.99

Sizes: 8-15

This is a general release so there should be many on the selves just in case you missed the release on Saturday. If you can’t find them in stores, you can defiantly find them online at stores you know and trust.

And if your still looking for the Aqua’s, well Finishline still has a few left in limited sizes (which is a little surprising considering how many people wanted this sneaker, I’m surprised any are left anywhere). It will also take a week or more to actually send them.

Finishline also has some matching Jordan t-shirts:

Jordan Men's Retro 8 Shoe Tee

Jordan Men’s Retro 8 Shoe Tee
$36.00

Jordan Men's Retro 8 Tee

Jordan Men’s Retro 8 Tee
$36.00

Usually Eastbay has more lifestyle items that match lifestyle Jordan releases. So you might want to check them out for matches.

Here is a comment from Finishline about the sneakers:

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Theyre alright…., October 13, 2007
By PSU2003 from State College, PA (read all my reviews) (read all my reviews)

Comfort: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5
Fit/sizing: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5
Quality: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5
Value: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5
Performance: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

“Just like I said, theyre alright. I had the originals back in 93 (still have em)–the quality just isnt the same. For example–there was a little bit of glue seeping out along the sole of my retros and, I dont know, they just dont feel the same!! I guess a $140 shoe now isnt the same as it was 14 years ago…. My favorite shoe of all time was reissued in the original colorway and frankly it was a bit of a letdown. If you have/had the originals (when Jordans were top of the line) youll be disappointed…..”

You can see a close comparison of the original Aqua’s verse the news ones on Nicekicks.com. I do not see quality differences. I see color differences but that is about it. I personally think that if the technology was available during the time the Aqua’s originally came out that they would look like the  current retros.

But who knows… maybe the quality of the pair this guy got was bad. Lawd knows when I do a review of the Lebron Soldier, it won’t be too good due to a craftsmanship issue that I will explain later, but it still is an overall good sneaker and maybe I got a bad pair.

So what is your next move? Buy em or deny em?
