In this age of so much retro goodness, the Air Jordan VIII is the one model that seems to have held out the longest.  CDPs not withstanding, it’s been well over five years since the last pairs hit retail, which is longer than any other Bulls-era Jordans.  The Eights are coming back in a big way starting next Saturday with the ‘Bugs Bunny’ OGs, with several more colorways to follow both new and old, including the pair pictured above.  The ’Playoffs’ Jordan 8 Retro is true to form in black nubuck, and based on these early pics, may even include the first retro cards we’ve seen in quite some time.  Asian retailers have these slated to release sooner than you’d expect given no word yet on the US release date, so click through for more images and be sure to check Sneaker News for updates.

Everybody is a critic. My love of this shoe is far from comprehension, so I will most def be getting these when they come out.

When I checked this out this morning I noticed how the retro card only went to the 22nd air jordan so I knew it was from 07 and secondly they changed the midsole to a lighter grey then the dark grey. Whoever posted the retro card should known that somebody would figured that out. I remember when ppl stopped caring for the cards and when they stop sending them with the shoes they are a must have again.

Im new to the shoe game sooo.....do Only retros get the retro card with the shoes? Or Would a shoe like the crimson or joker 3's get a retro card as well?

The 8s have never had good quality materials. I owned the Bugs Bunny's and Black/Chrome when they came out back when i was in high school and in about 4 careful wears they were still finished. i still have the 07 playoffs but i rarely wear them they crease very easily.

@XxBeast-BoyxX Naah... Up to about 3 yrs ago or so, when u purchased a pair of Js (and u could jus walk in a store wit no issues) on top of da shoes was a retro card which explained its origins of da shoes.. But they haven't put retro cards in Js fa a min. I think Js were 135 too lol

@Ocho_DeJulio the leather on the Bugs Bunny are wack. the ones we got in shipment last week look like insta crease

@23kicksfor23chicks well if you look close at a 07 or 93 pair on the toebox and side not including panel with strap there is a design on the nubuck that kind of resembles elphant print but not exactly

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite @XxBeast-BoyxX word I copped my orange blaze 8's back in 08 for $125 with the retro card intact with no problem at all and seen these playoffs and bugs bunny's in all sizes...shit is so fucked up now it makes no sense.

XxBeast-BoyxX

lol so for clarification, all Air Jordan's 5,6,7,etc; would get a retro card in the box?

XxBeast-BoyxX
XxBeast-BoyxX

@XxBeast-BoyxX No they stop giving retro cards...damn my friend you became a sneakerhead at the wrong time when the sneaker game is all fucked up. You are basically paying more for less nowadays.
