Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” – 1993 Original vs. 2013 Retro Comparison

May 16th, 2013 by / 47

1993 2013 air jordan viii playoffs comparison 1 Air Jordan VIII Playoffs   1993 Original vs. 2013 Retro Comparison

Every time an OG colorway is trotted back out, sneakerheads love to play the comparison game. The Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” is no different, and luckily we’ve got a set of shots to satisfy that hunger. As you’ll see once you click through for the entire gallery, this retro ends up as one of the more faithful ones that Jordan Brand has produced. The big difference here, indeed one of the only ones, are the pull tabs-the original has red where the 2013 has black. Get with us after the jump for all the details and let us know if the 2013 Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” is close enough to the original for your liking. Thanks to Joe Venuto for the photos!

Its just common sense, if you ppl take care of your shoes they"ll last longer then 5 wears. I got shoes from 7 years ago til llast years with multiple wears and there still great. Materials has nothing to do with it ppl just use that as an excuse bcuz they are hard on shoes. Take care of your kicks and they'll take care of you. For god sakes OG's fucked up quickly too if u didn't take of those either

If its different it's not a retro. All retros are changed in some way ie: color, height, material, stitching and even design (toe box on OG vs Retro). Charge us more for a cheaper make, not cool.

Definitely prefer that red tab on the OG's....just gives it a little bit more pop. At any rate, they are both pretty close though. Makes me want a pair now.

You're a fuckin clown!..

Why don't you upload a comparison pic of O.G playoffs and this years retro?

Easy to talk smack behind your keyboard, how about use your brain and figure how hard it would be to locate a deadstock shoe from 1993..

Clown..

I've been waiting on 17s 18s 19s!!! 20s FOREVER... & big inf is right as well as the other dude... Some these Js is trash in CW or Model no need to beat your self up an cop every pair, its always a flaw bottom gets yellow, crisis with in 5 wears, cheap ass leather, looks super ashy after few wears like the playoffs 8s & I'm pretty sure those new grape 5s... You just have to be smart know what your getting into & not cop every pair because a few of them Js is trash.

Yea.. I've been coppin Js since round then too my dude... And at dis point I'm jus waitin fa then to drop sum 16s, 17s & Columbia 11s (1 of my grails) & a few different cws here & there... But I'm wit u, a lot of these Js are repeatative and/or ugly on top of cheap materials (not complaining Cuz u kno wat u are gettin into)... Thats why I wear a lot of free runs, roshe's, kobes & air max's
