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.

The only pic he's missing is the inner lining. Either way, these are pretty close.
