Air Jordan VIII Retro “Playoffs”

April 22nd, 2013 by | 33 comments

air jordan viii retro playoffs Air Jordan VIII Retro Playoffs

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.

The Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” 2013 retro is coming, you’ve just gotta be patient. Unless you’re Fabolous, who is plenty used to being blessed with early Air Jordan pairs. The Brooklyn rapper is shown here in that very colorway, although it’s unclear as to whether or not the Air Jordan VIII on feet in the image is of the 2007 or 2013 persuasion. Also notable is Fab’s “OG” sweatshirt, a Vandal-A design that’s been more and more popular amongst the sneakerhead set of late. Let us know if you think Fab’s got a new pair of the Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” on in the comments below.

Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs”

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.

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.
