The Air Jordan VIII will always be remembered as the final Air Jordan shoe Michael wore before his sudden retirement. He certainly got some good use out of the shoes thanks to the epic 6-game battle between the Bulls and Charles Barkley’s Phoenix Suns, and alongside this past weekend’s “Bugs” release and these “Playoffs”, Jordan Brand even has a “Suns” colorway coming to more or less commemorate that amazing showdown. The current focus is indeed on this OG colorway though, with “Playoffs” being the appointed nickname for the shoes that Michael wore for the most of the postseason, and while a release date hasn’t been confirmed (likely June, considering the Suns are dropping in May), these are definitely at the top of the radar for future sneaker pick-ups. Enjoy the new detailed gallery below and stay tuned for more updates.
Air Jordan VIII
Im deciding to cop 3 out of the 4 shoes: cement 3's, black toes 1's, playoff 8's and black grape 5's. Jordan is bankrupting me with these releases but afterwards its a good waiting period until the other season comes of shoes.
Man nobody at all should complain about these bcuz these are on point. Only 2 differences between these & the 07's, the design print on the nubuck which the OG's had and 2nd the midsole. The 07's had a lighter midsole on them & these 2013's feature a darker midsole like the OG's. Either way u win with the 07's or 2013's bcuz both shoes added & subtracted features from its OG counterpart but still these are a must cop.
Definitely copping these I hope the rumor about the aquas and the chromes are true. the bugs bunnys were not that great.
Might have to cop again, but it's funny how people WANT these hella bad now, and when they released in 07 they sat on shelves for like a month!
@John2581 hey! these weren't released yet were they??
@Fernand62053217 i definitely slept on them back then, and my Ex got me a pair.........ONE OF MY FAV SNEAKS EVER. gotta cop again. they weren't released yet were they?
@Fernand62053217 The glory days have passed, where you could just walk into any store and get your jays. I remember when I was freaking single digits and i walked in with my parents got my size 10 for about 175 max, any sneaker and they were legit. I guess because the air force ones are out of style lol I really miss when i was younger man.
@Fernand62053217 In my case money. Didn't have things together in life like I do now, so these are a must this time around.
@Fernand62053217 It's the hype, nobody was hype over them until recently
@MyronMcCartney where you get june 15 from
@ToonGriffeyJr Just take his/her nfo with a grain of salt and move on. If it's right it's right, and if it's wrong, well you already know.
@John2581 goooooooooood, lol. thought for a second I missed out. Thanx man
