This is the Air Jordan VIII (8) Retro "Laney" GS (Grade School) size which features a cool grey, violet force, and electric yellow color way. Most MJ fans and sneakerheads know by now that Jordan attended the North Carolina based Emsley A. Laney High School from 1977-1981. While attending Laney the young MJ became a prime athlete by playing not only basketball, but baseball and football as well. His sophomore year he tried out for the varsity basketball team but was cut because he was only 5'11'' tall, too short for that level of play. That year ready to prove the varsity management wrong he led the junior varsity team scoring multiple 40 point games. After growing 4 inches and heavy training, he dominated varsity his last two years averaging over 20 points per game. During his senior year he averaged a triple double (29.2 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 10.1 assists) and was selected as a McDonald's All-American, the nation's highest H.S. basketball honor. Be sure to add this pair to your GS Air Jordan collection.
