LeBron James has just completed a two-year run the likes of which the basketball world has rarely seen.  He’s still got a ways to go, though, if he wants to truly become King, because two championships with a gold medal and a couple of MVPs is elite, but it takes all that and more including two three-peats to get to MJ status.  The ‘Playoffs’ Air Jordan VIII Retro reminds us of the first of those back-to-back-to-backs almost exactly twenty years after the Chicago Bulls captured their third title.  Check these out in new images after the jump, then get ready to grab yours this Saturday at select Jordan Brand retailers like Oneness.

All of the Air Jordan VIII colorways we’ve seen hit retail in 2013 have been centered around NBA squads. Of course it’s mostly been Bulls stuff, but that Suns colorway sort of has us wondering about what other teams colors could help the shoe out. This Detroit Pistons look gives you a could idea of you could expect were they going in a little bit further than just the “Suns”. Keep in mind this isn’t a sample, rather a player exclusive crafted way back for Rip Hamilton. Get more on the Air Jordan VIII “Rip City” special for Hamilton after the jump and then add them to your collection courtesy of faredalways on eBay.

Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” – Beauty Shots

20 years ago to the day, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls defeated the Phoenix Suns by a one-point margin in the 1993 NBA Finals. The threepeat was complete (the first one at least) and Michael Jordan got them there with an incredible 41 points-per-game average across the Series. While the Bulls were more or less the consensus best team in the league at the time, there were some doubts surrounding the possibility of a third championship in such a short span thanks to the strength of their Finals opponent the Phoenix Suns (Charles Barkley on their side). The Championship win would eventually become a bittersweet one, as His Airness’ first retirement from the game following the death of his father looming over the franchise. Of course, on feet for Michael Jordan during that 1993 post-season was the Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” – a celebrated Air Jordan original that hits stores for the third time in history.

Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs” – New Release Date

air jordan viii playoffs new release date 1 Air Jordan VIII Playoffs   New Release Date

Instead of releasing this Saturday, the ‘Playoffs’ Air Jordan VIII Retro has been pushed back two weeks to June 29th.  This breaks the pattern we’ve seen of Air Jordan 1 Retro ’93s dropping two weeks prior to the 8s they’re inspired by, with that model having hit this past weekend.  The 29th also falls a bit after the NBA Finals this colorway in part signifies, but that date is a bit more open in terms of high-profile releases, so this could turn out best for all parties involved.  Stick with Sneaker News so you always know the latest, and get ahead of the pack with a pair early from sneakerzp2008 on eBay.

Usually the Jordans carrying the “Playoffs” nickname were ones that led to an eventual championship for Mike for the post-season in which they were originally rocked. The Air Jordan VIII shown here of course fits that bill, being the shoe that His Airness had on feet during the third installment of his initial triple. The shoes currently have a June 15th release date attached, one which will be preceded by a similarly colored Air Jordan 1 ’93. Get a complete view of this “Playoffs” Air Jordan VIII style after the jump and tell us if you’re going to be picking up a pair.
