Alongside the Air Jordan V is the Air Jordan VIII Retro playing a bit of a supporting role this year, but with three OG colorways confirmed for a return, does this secondary role overshadow the lead actor? The Aqua, Bugs, and Playoffs have all been scheduled to release in 2013, and as we get a first look at the 2013 Retro of the Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs”, we’re left to wonder if the same shoes will re-release in 2016, when the Air Jordan VIII celebrates its own 23rd Anniversary. We’ve got a gallery of images for you below so take a look and let us know if you think the rapid pace of Retro releases is something you’re not entirely on board with.
worth every damn penny!!!!!! i been missing out on retros these past couple years but i need these even if i gotta pay $250+
NICE!!! Use my old playoff 12s to the gym and theyre great. Guna b happy to get my hands on a fresh pair.
Retro 8s are my favorite model of Retro Jordan's. I WILL get these just like the other two releases!
Nice shoe, but who was the genius to put a black background for a black shoe. Dumbassssss (Red Foreman voice). These pictures suck!
Can't wait for these. One of the only releases I'll be copping this year. 2013 has been a weaker year in sneakers to me.
These look just like the 07 retro 8's, normally something stands out thats different but i just don't see anything. Anyhow i will still get these
Well iam my own definition of a sneaker head. Every J's is not fire/dope etc I buy what I can and I buy what I like most important I wear what I buy not what JB promotes the most or what everybody is talking about if you have bills, school etc too bad its life so buy what you can for everybody else that buys every pair of Js I mean every pair your honestly lieing to your self cos as I said every pair is not fire/dope even if its your fav sneaker the CW is trash an you still buy it.. it just don't make sense if they came out with pink an white 11's for men size only it would be sold out some likes pink an some force they self to wear it knowing you look gay AF BUT............. That's just my opinion.Well iam my own definition of a sneaker head.

DOPE but JB really need to calm down with a OG retro almost every week. Not that I can't keep up its murdering the game.
Speaking as someone who loves kicks in general and cops a fair share of jordans, I think that the recent release rate of basically every week or so is way too much. Granted I don't have a job cause im still in school so it's a little annoying that I can't buy everything I want but at the same time it just seems like we can't appreciate one drop without immediately thinking about the next. Like these for example ill have to pass on even tho they fresh. Just my 2 cents no need for arguments lol
Idc what anyone says i get hype off evrey retro that releases. When I young my parents never had the money to buy the jordans i wanted. So now that I'm older i have a job and can afford these sneakers. I feel like I'm back in high school getting so hype over evrey release lol
Keep releasin everything. Why not? People get mad at all the retros, but they're not as good as the ogs anyway. Plus no one wants to rock their ogs. Its like having replicas you dont care as much about
@Cop em and Rock em well said lol
@President Ward amen
@SkilledHooper82 yeah am trying to copp those BB8's n I heard it might be easy cause so many not like the BB8's hopefully those will be a easy copp for me sofar this yr only jays that were easy here in ny were the crimsons,pacer13's,and the 5's but even that one now is hard to find some places
@iamromierome this is true I got crimsons but never saw them in person before I brought n when finally came to my house I hated them but just going to customized them I guess but ur statement on not every Jordan being hit is true there r many that are Horrendous like the 15's lol but to every one there own u know
@iamromierome man shut the fuck up with all that bullshit
@iamromierome who asked?
@iamromierome shut you're spoken word bitchass up
@iamromierome Its one thing to have a long ass rant, but another thing to copy and paste it. Makes you look pretty stupid lol
@merteskinova so true one a month is good n maybe 2 or 3 around dec or nov or even oct would be ok for me
@turt123 yes but what u think will they put real chrome prolly not knowing JB n what's up with no 3M on some of the Jordan 13's ? Come on JB I know 3M can't cost that much lol
@Rockaway Bully thank you for understanding my point.
@Born2fly if you could read you will see that its my own opinion.
@iamnotromierome Lol your not even worth me violating you over the internet, stay in your lane!
@Brando23 you got it pimp, that was my mistake.
