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.
