Can you spot the differences? This Air Jordan VIII that was produced during the model’s Retro run in 2003, but this particular version of the famed ‘Playoffs’ doesn’t feature the chaotic pattern on the mudguard nor does it have the chenille material on the tongue. We’ve seen some funky Air Jordan VIII samples before (like that upside-down logo of the Aquas), but this considering this alleged 1-of-1 is a size 13.5, there’s a possibility that these could have been created for Michael Jordan himself. Check out the images below, and hit up the auction from Air Jordan collector extraordinaire depeche23mode on eBay.

interesting to see a sample.
i like the red pull tab
i don't like the circular jumpman logo on inner sleeve without the shag carpet fuzz
and i just looked at my last playoff viii retro from a couple years ago - the inner print is way "busier" on this sample pair.
Ill be passing on the playoff 8swith since i got em but they should retro em with dat red heel tab on da back to make em diff.
@Cr8zzyKickz everybody should be saying that lol 2013 got too many crazy releases
@jfin3 does it realli matter all the OG 8s will come back out in just 3 yrs
